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!

Every Season

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!
