Greenville, SC – Greenville Football Club announced today that with recent movement within the NPSL Southeast Conference it has decided to take a hiatus from the 2020 NPSL season.
After careful consideration and extensive due diligence, Greenville Football Club’s leadership has decided it is in the clubs best interest to refrain from 2020 NPSL play. The plan, in this hiatus, is to develop and execute on other key initiatives that can further grow and develop the game in the upstate, as well as, the Greenville FC brand, all the while planning an enhanced and exciting return to the Men’s game.
“This was a very difficult decision to come to, but a decision we found crucial for the long term health, sustainability and future growth of the organization as a whole,” said Marco Carrizales, Co-Founder of Greenville FC. “Our mission will never change, and that is to grow and build the sport of soccer in our community from every level of play.”
“Our main objective has always been to provide a platform for the growth of the sport, and up to this point that has been done primarily through the men’s program in the NPSL,” continued Carrizales. “That’s only one component of the overall intention of the Greenville FC organization.”
“We are incredibly thankful to this community and to every individual that has helped get Greenville FC to this point,” continued Carrizales. “Rest assured we will not be going anywhere. This isn’t a time to dwell, but rather a time to regroup and work harder than ever towards a fruitful future.”
