We are proud; 2018 US Open Cup Edition

As we look forward to our first ever Lamar Hunt US Open Game next week, and further out on the horizon, one thing stands out about our club…we are proud.

We are proud;

  • Of our history. Over 12 years of success, memories, and persistent longevity.
  • Of our grassroots story. From one person, to a team, to multiple teams, to an organized and passionate club. From initial player recruitment in Fall 2005 on Craigslist to years of fighting against practicing on random patchy soccer fields around town, we love to play and support the game.
  • Of our voracious spirit. We love to compete and have shown willingness to put in the work (on-field & organizationally) in order to improve, excel, and achieve.
  • Of our club community. Little matters in this world without the people you get to share it with. Our family of over 100 players is supportive, talented, and fun.We are thrilled to be here! We are hungry to show our fans and the city of the quality of local soccer and the passion of our club. We know Azteca FC will be formidable foe. They have highly talented squad and can often pull some of the best players from not only around Colorado, but also the Southwestern US (El Paso, TX) and even Mexico from what we understand. That said, we will stand and fight. We will be prepared and we will be ready to put everything on the line to earn our first US Open Cup win!
