OSA FC is a non profit organization with the mission of bridging soccer realities and creating a cultural exchange between Italy and the USA. Throughout our world wide soccer network we strive to increase opportunities and advance the game by connecting players, coaches, teams and the community. Our expertise and knowledge is spread through our work with players, colleges, coaches and clubs and contributes to the growth of soccer in our local community.
For the last 4 years the club has brought top level Italian soccer players to Seattle and mixed them with local players to form teams. The women play in the WPSL , a 2nd division league and the men in the NPSL , a 4th division league, which is also the biggest league in the US. In 2015 OSA FC’s men’s team qualified for the first round of the 2015 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup , they won the NPSL Northwest Conference, and reached the regional finals! In 2013 the women’s team won the Northwest Conference. In the following seasons they have reached second place in the Northwest Conference.
The club arranges for the Italian players to stay with local host families to have a true American experience. This has allowed host families and players to share a unique in home cultural experience, and many have developed long lasting friendships and some have been able to travel to Italy to visit players and be treated to a local Italian experience.
In order to continue this we have started this GoFundMe campaign to help cover expenses to allow our teams to participate in these National leagues, which take us to Oregon, California, British Coulumbia and possibly beyond!
To gt through the 2016 season we are in need of $60,000. We are asking for $30,000, as the club and sponsors should cover the rest…
All funds will go toward paying for home games, away games, field rentals, equipment and league fees.
****ALL GOFUNDME DONATIONS OF $50+ WILL BE ENTERED TO WIN A FREE TRIP TO ITALY!!! PLUS, RECEIVE A SEASON PASS FOR ALL MEN’S AND WOMEN’S HOME GAMES, DISCOUNTS WITH OUR SPONSORS AND AN OSA FC GADGET!
Please help us continue to make this experience possible!
