The STATE of Soccer in WASHINGTON
The Stars are a complete football club, including academy, semi-pro men’s side and women’s teams. They are used to traveling around the state for matches, having entered the American National Soccer League Washington Division in 2011 and going to away matches in Yakima, Tri-Cities, Shelton, Chelan and more. The team won the state that year in the ANSL.
The men compete in the Starfire Premier League, where they have had success. This weekend the club was at the Seattle Community Cup Tournament.
On their league application, the Stars wrote:
“Seattle Stars FC wants to join this league because is the type of league that we were expecting to have in our area, and also because we believe that it is a serious project and we want to do our part to make this thing happen.”
The Stars are the fourth club to apply since the process began just last Friday. The league continues to take online applications from clubs (link) and will hold an organizational and informational conference call in early August with details to be announced soon.
