The STATE of Soccer in WASHINGTON
by David Falk
Wenatchee United Football Club has been granted limited use of their first-ever club crest after agreeing to terms set forth by the Evergreen Premier League and Branding Manager Timothy Hamilton.
Javier Reyna leads the Wenatchee bid to join the EPLWA in 2014. His group is currently exploring connections with the greater Wenatchee Valley soccer community, as well as investigating use of the Apple Bowl as a possible home venue. The crest now appears on the fledgling club’s social media sites.
When WUFC officially applied to the Evergreen Premier League they entered into discussions with Hamilton about how their ‘brand’ might look. The result is a circular crest in signature colors green and white and featuring an apple to honor the “Apple Capital of the World” and the George Sellar Bridge “uniting” East Wenatchee with Wenatchee.
Next up for WUFC is joining in the first Evergreen Premier League conference call (TBA) and awaiting official word on being accepted into the new league. The EPLWA has formed an Entrance Committee which will begin evaluating league applicants in August.
The Evergreen Premier League (EPLWA) is a statewide adult semi-pro men’s premier soccer league that will host amateur players on serious, competitive, professionally-run clubs. Target kick off is set for May 2014. The EPLWA will be similar in structure and mission to the Pacific Coast Soccer League (PCSL) but will serve Washington state clubs. Your club can apply to join the Evergreen Premier League here. Questions about the EPLWA can be directed to David Falk at goalWA@gmail.com.
