Punk Football by Bearfight FC.
Supporter Owned independent club Bearfight FC has started a grassroots football movement in the unlikeliest of places. Wilmington, Delaware. The guys prove that despite numerous obstacles, independent clubs can still find their way by engaging with the communities that support them and growing together. This is their story.
The Atlanta Ultras made a quick trip down to Tampa to watch their beloved Atlanta Silverbacks play the Rowdies on June 13, 2015. My camera was denied at the gate, and cell phone footage was not up to par, so here are some quick shots from the pre match. Contrary to popular belief, the Atlanta Ultras are very much alive and well for 2016. Be on the lookout for more info this week.
Chattanooga FC has built the most consistent 4th Division winning club in the United States reaching 3 finals in 4 years (winning none). Pushed on by their supporters, the Chattahooligans, they drew 9000 to last years national semifinal. They also beat their first professional opposition in 2014, the Wilmington Hammerheads 3-1 in the second round of the US Open Cup before getting knocked out by the Atlanta Silverbacks 5-0 in the third round.
Back again in the cup this year, Chattanooga hosted the PDL’s Ocala Stampede in the first round. This is how it all went down.
It was a special night at the MCU Center in Brooklyn, New York where the New York Cosmos hosted the Ottawa Fury on Saturday May 2, 2015. Non League America was on site to witness history, as the Cosmos B took the field for the very first time in the National Premier Soccer League. We also had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. David Kilpatrick, a New York Cosmos club historian.
A very special thanks to La Banda del Cosmos, The Borough Boys, and the Cross Island Crew. Thank you.
