Every season FC Denver takes the field, we have our eyes on glory. Last season (Spring 2017) we got so close to the Colorado Premier League ‘Triple’ (Men’s D1, D2, and O30 Championships). We won the O30 championship and came up just short in D1 and D2 playoffs. It was a wildly successful and fun season and here we are, on the verge of another.
NOW, we’re reloaded for a new season and ready to win all those titles. Consistency is an art when it comes to elite amatuer soccer as it’s all based on the hunger, organization, and determination of the players and leadership involved. These are the passions we live out in addition to the busy daily jobs and lives we live. We’ve been extremely consistent at an elite level for the past 8 years (of our 11 year history), but the train doesn’t stop for anyone, so we continue to grind to get to the top.
As we look forward to the season ahead, our biggest goal is qualifying for the US Open Cup. We entered the qualifying tournament for the first time last year and came up short against an Azteca FC team that went on to qualify for the tournament proper. This year, if injuries stay away, we’ll be able to put forward an even better squad capable of qualifying us. There’s plenty of work to be done between and now and then, but it’s all in the waiting.
Additionally, as mentioned above, we will give our all, as an entire club, to win the league outright by each division of the Colorado Premier League. This would be a crowning achievement for the hustle that goes into building our squads. We do it together.
Another memorable FC Denver season waits in the balance. Lets get it. Forever FC Denver!
