Pro team changes name to WINTER HAVEN UNITED FC


After playing our inaugural season during the summer of 2017, it became apparent that our county has a lot of untapped talent being developed at the youth level by all the local youth clubs who have done an amazing job. We are pleased to offer a playing option beyond youth level for the local player who wants to compete at a high level.

During the 2017 summer season, with at least 65 players trying out, we built a team that shared the identity and work ethic that is a key fabric of our community. With players from local high schools, local youth programs, and colleges, we were able to establish ourselves as a resilient and hard-working technical & tactical team. After losing the first 2 games of the season, the squad regrouped and retooled to come back and win some crucial matchups that showed the quality of players in the area. During the 2017 season, Winter Haven United FC played our games at Polk State College, Winter Haven, thank you to the City of Winter Haven Parks & Recreation for the opportunity to compete in our own backyard. The community came to support the squad in full force and we are looking forward to growing the number of fans this coming season. In honor of all the fans who have grown with the team, we are pleased to introduce WINTER HAVENS ARMY! – the official supporters group for your WINTER HAVEN UNITED FC

The 2018 Spring season is scheduled for March/April – August 2018. We are very excited to be competing in the United Premier Soccer League (www.upslsoccer.com). UPSL formed in 2011 in California is the fastest growing pro development league in the nation with over 70 teams across the United States. The UPSL is a pioneer in the game as they are the only league with promotion and relegation, currently in place in California & Colorado respectively. Teams in the UPSL have the automatic right to compete in the prestigious Lamar Hunt US OPEN CUP.We as Winter Haven United FC are very pleased with the opportunity to be a part of such a great organization whose purpose is to improve and grow the game of soccer in the USA. The Aspirations and plans presented by UPSL including adding a women’s division align well with our intentions to introduce a women’s pro-developmental team by 2019. As we prepare for 2018-2019 season we are pleased to offer individuals & companies in the community an opportunity to be a part of Winter Haven United FC, through partnerships, membership, and ownership
