Our Team

Three Clubs, Two Markets, One Union

We are two (2) men's pre-professional soccer clubs and one (1) pre-professional women's soccer club committed to positively impacting the Cities of Rochester and Syracuse, NY and its surrounding communities by fielding competitive, championship-caliber teams while supporting the development of youth soccer locally. Passion and inclusion are our North Star, guiding how we live, how we act, how we play, how we serve. Rather than being a sport business operating in Rochester/Syracuse, we are a Flower City business operating in sport. As such, we acknowledge our responsibility in nurturing social and economic connections through inclusive business practices. We actively embrace diversity and aim to reflect back the faces and voices of our region.

Rooted in Community

Our clubs aim to be community-centric in engagement and operation. We participate annually in community events and look to bring local businesses and organizations into our stadium on matchdays to help cross-promote and grow our city. Likewise, the Union and 1872 clubs work closely with local youth soccer programs and offer training sessions for players and educational sessions for coaches to help elevate their youth programs.
