The National Premier Soccer League (NPSL), is proud to announce that Charlottesville Alliance FC (Charlottesville, VA), has joined the league as an expansion team. The club will compete in the Northeast Region’s Mid-Atlantic Conference.
“We are very excited to bring the NPSL to Charlottesville,” NPSL Chairman Joe Barone commented. “Virginia has always had a great history within the beautiful game and we’re confident that Charlottesville Alliance FC can add a great deal to that impressive legacy.”
There are pickup teams, there are local rec teams, and there are pub teams in soccer. Now in Charlottesville, Virginia, there is a restaurant team turned 501c3, joining the NPSL as the Charlottesville Alliance FC. After making an impressive 2016 US Open Cup run against the Richmond Kickers, Cville FC has rebranded from Aromas Cafe FC (named after their primary sponsors), and taken their game to the next level. Our editor Jason Bruzzichesi was able to sit down with David Deaton of the newly christened team, and talk a little bit more about their club.
