WITH OUR POWERS COMBINED!!!!
Big news coming out of Cary this afternoon with the announcement that North Carolina FC has formed the largest youth-to-pro soccer club in the United States. North Carolina FC is joining forces with Capital Area Soccer League (CASL) and Triangle Futbol Club Alliance (TFCA) to create a 20,000-member organization. CASL and TFCA will rebrand as North Carolina FC Youth.
In addition to being great for growing the game for our youth, this move strengthens NCFC’s bid for an MLS expansion team. Just my thoughts, but if you’re looking to expand your league I believe you would want:
- The fastest growing area
- An area committed to growing the game of soccer.
I’m looking around and I don’t see that level of commitment elsewhere. Even more impressive is the ability of the different organizations to get on the same page for the greater good of the soccer community and the area.
Getting an MLS team will do great things for the soccer youth in the area. People who weren’t talking about us before will be now. Those know-it-alls on Redditt can SHUT UP
Live look in at Tampa’s Bid:
