Our Story

 
 

We are group of friends passionate about soccer. We all met at the University of Pennsylvania. (Technically, we are a Penn-registered student club.)

We started playing soccer together in the city many years ago. (Technically, it was January 2013.) We won a few local leagues, became good friends, and had a lot of fun.

At some point, we realized how much the West Philadelphia community was giving us. So, we decided we had to give back. Of course, through soccer. (Technically, it was Summer 2015.)

So we partnered with the Netter Center and put together a soccer after-school program for West Philly public schools for the academic year 2015/2016. And then we did it again for the academic year 2016/2017. At that time, our name West Philly Football Club, or WPFC. Take a look at our gallery to see how much fun we all had. Or read more here.

We received so much support from so many people. We decided it's time to do more. So we're going to the entire city.

For now.
