Our Team

Appalachian State University cut their storied Men's Soccer Program due to COVID-19. We wanted to make sure that Men's Soccer continues in the High Country. It's a soccer loving community with lots of Soccer History.


On November 18th, 2020 Appalachian FC Chief Marketing Officer Bigfoot walked down from his NEST to knock the ball around at picturesque Ted Mack Stadium. AND Appalachian FC was officially launched with a viral video on social media and the Squatchiest Soccer Team in America, possibly, the world was born.  What a year it's been... 

An expansion team led by Head Coach Dale Parker started play in May 2021 and found success on the field, winning the hearts of the High Country soccer faithful as Appalachian FC qualified for the NPSL Southeast Conference Playoffs.  

Playing in front of a packed stadium, Game Days in Boone became a big time event with a great tailgating scene, supporters pre-game party at Booneshine Brewing Company and the Supporters March to the stadium through the woods from Booneshine to Ted Mack. Then the celebratory Post Game Party where many Squatchy Ales (Official Beer of Appalachian FC) were enjoyed. 

Appalachian FC gear is a hot commodity in the High Country and around the US with over $150,000 of merchandise sold online to all 50 states. Appalachian FC opened a Team Shop which has become a very popular shopping destination for local Appalachian FC supporters and soccer fans visiting the High Country.  Appalachian FC has a multi-year Partnership with global brand, PUMA.

From the very beginning, the High Country Business Community shared Appalachian FC vision for soccer in Boone and the clubs commitment to the community.  Thirty-Three companies became Charter Sponsors for the Inaugural Season. Basically, the "Who's Who" Best of Boone Business joined the Appalachian FC Sponsorship Family.  The primary jersey sponsor proudly featured iconic area business, Mast General Store. 

Appalachian FC is a community club.  Our vision is to grow the beautiful game in the High Country while providing opportunities for players to pursue their dream of playing soccer at the highest level, giving opportunities for App State students to intern and gain valuable real world sports management experience, using the World's most popular game to inspire local youth soccer players to reach their potential and to use our players as positive role models and ambassadors in the community.  

Appalachian FC is made up of one of the strongest ownership groups in minor league sports that includes some of the best soccer executives and coaches in the game, local soccer and community leaders and successful business owners and entrepreneurs in Boone. It's a dynamic group who all share a passion for the game of soccer, an appreciation of the impact soccer has on the community, strong understanding of the business of the game and deep rooted love for the High Country.
