OSA Soccer Group returns to its home in Seattle as OSA FC!
After one year in Tacoma with the FC Tacoma 253 adult men’s and women’s teams, OSA Soccer Group is returning to it’s home base in Seattle where soccer maintains a strong hold thanks to the pro soccer teams Sounders FC and Seattle Reign! OSA Football Club’s men’s team will continue to play in the ever expanding National Premier Soccer League making OSA FC the second highest tier Club in Washington State, after the Sounders FC, whose adult men’s team plays in a league with out age limitations. After the enormous successes the team reached in its debut season- qualifying for the U.S. Open Cup playing in the first round of the Cup, winning the Northwest Conference title and reaching the playoffs- the club will return to Seattle. Not only will the club continue it’s men’s adult team, but it will start a new girls and boys youth program to develop and grow soccer players throughout the greater Seattle area. The main goal of this new program is to support the growth of North-American soccer, as the OSA Soccer Group has been doing for the last 8 years, via a variety of projects and offers. Projects include aiding in the growth of MLS Club Impact Montreal and the development of players through a partnership with ACF Fiorentina, who currently has players such as Joshua Perez, one of the most talented young players in the States. The newly named OSA FC will rely on strategic collaborations with colleges and national and international pro soccer Clubs, and will still continue to support it’s adults women’s side in its fourth consecutive year in the National WPSL league, which is under the NWSL. The adult teams and the new youth sector will continue to be influenced by Italian soccer and will continue to offer soccer and cultural exchange programs between Italy and North America, programs that have already seen many talented Italian players playing in American leagues and viceversa. Think soccer, think OSA Soccer Group.
