"Claim a Share of History: Support the Rebirth of the Washington Diplomats™ and Influence the Future of American Soccer"


Are you prepared to be part of a monumental resurgence and influence the direction of professional soccer in America? Envision yourself owning a share of one of the most renowned teams in American sports—the Washington Diplomats™. It's not just an investment opportunity; it's about joining a team that embodies the spirit of Washington and the resilience of American soccer.

Founded in 1974 by a group of business leaders from Washington D.C., the Diplomats initially called RFK Stadium home before moving to W.T. Woodson High School in Northern Virginia for most matches in 1975 and 1976, while their indoor games were hosted at the D.C. Armory. Throughout their history, the Diplomats emerged as one of the league's most successful teams, qualifying for the playoffs in each of their final three seasons. Under the guidance of head coach Gordon Bradley, their pinnacle moment arrived with the landmark signing of Johan Cruyff, the future European Player of the Century, in their last year. This signing triggered a surge in attendance, with 20,000 fans flocking to each game. Cruyff, alongside other talented Dutch players like Guus Hiddink and Wim Jansen, introduced an exhilarating Dutch-inspired total football style, captivating the crowd with its high-pressing tactics.

The National Soccer League™ (NSL), a community-funded "Soccer movement," is now reviving the Washington Diplomats™, and you have the chance to be a part of this historic resurgence. As fan-owners, you'll play a pivotal role in ensuring that the Diplomats remain faithful to their origins while embracing the evolution of American soccer.

The objective is to establish the Washington Diplomats as one of the premier founding clubs within the newly formed "National Soccer League," alongside three other esteemed American soccer institutions: a reimagined LA Aztecs, Atlanta Chiefs, and Chicago Sting. These four pioneering clubs will engage in competition until the league is prepared for growth, welcoming other iconic soccer teams with illustrious histories to join the fray. This marks the dawn of a fresh era in the soccer industry, where familiar legacies intertwine with promising new beginnings.

But this endeavor goes beyond mere nostalgia; it's about constructing a legacy for generations to come. The revitalized Washington Diplomats™ aspire to ignite a fresh wave of soccer enthusiasts and players, highlighting the talent and fervor that American soccer embodies. With a dedication to both on-field triumphs and an unparalleled fan journey, the Diplomats are poised to reclaim their former splendor and secure their spot among the legends of American soccer. Join us in resurrecting the Washington Diplomats™ and penning the next chapter of American soccer lore. Together, we'll honor the heritage of the past while shaping a radiant future for the beautiful game.

The Diplomats epitomized more than just a soccer team; they embodied the resilience and resolve of Washington D.C. They symbolized the strength found in collective effort toward a shared objective, demonstrating that greatness is attainable through dedication and perseverance. As we aim to expand American soccer, the Washington Diplomats stand as a testament to what can be accomplished when we unite behind a common purpose.

The relaunch of the Washington Diplomats marks a significant moment, one we hope will ignite a new era of soccer players and enthusiasts. Our aim is to showcase to the world the formidable presence of American soccer, and with the Washington Diplomats at the forefront, we are confident in our ability to thrive.

As we embark on this journey to revive the Washington Diplomats, let us not forget the lessons of the past and the esteemed players who graced the team. Let us collaborate to construct a promising future for American soccer, infused with the same fervor and resolve that endeared the Washington Diplomats to fans.

Washington, D.C. locals are fervent supporters of their sports teams, which include the Washington Wizards (NBA), Washington Football Team (NFL), Washington Nationals (MLB), and Washington Capitals (NHL). The city boasts a rich sports legacy, marked by unforgettable championship wins and dedicated fan communities.

D.C. United, a cornerstone of Major League Soccer (MLS) situated in the nation's capital, commands a staggering valuation of $700 million, showcasing remarkable growth in their sports assets that surpasses even the rapid pace of the S&P 500. This momentum is further fueled by the anticipation of the FIFA World Cup, the world's largest sporting event, slated for 2026 in the United States, with the country's capital as a focal point for the global soccer extravaganza. With the World Cup finals set to unfold in America, the world's premier sports market, the stage is set for an unparalleled celebration of soccer on a grand scale.

The club must be fully funded by operators and sponsors. The minimum requirement to activate the club within the National Soccer League is $5 million, and the league mandates that expansions demonstrate three years of working capital amounting to $15 million. Our first round of funding aims to give fans the opportunity to reactivate the club and gain a financial interest in it.

Join us in funding the revival of the Washington Diplomats! Your investment will be pivotal in driving our mission to bring back this iconic team. With your support, we'll attract top-tier operators and sponsors, ensuring the Diplomats' triumphant return to the National Soccer League and further enhancing the capital's status as a hub for soccer excellence.


"The nation's capital city boasts a colossal football market hungry for more, and the revival of the Diplomats perfectly resonates with the fans, the sport, and the NSL. Our goal is to reunite this legacy club with its passionate supporters, seamlessly blending the past with the present in the vibrant tapestry of soccer history." - Scott Michaels, NSL Founder
