Inter-Florida FC and FC Prime announce merger
Inter-Florida FC and FC Prime have announced a merger to align the two entities under the same umbrella, uniting the organizations in central Broward County.
Inter-Florida FC, operating out of Tamarac Sports Complex, offers competitive programming for youth soccer players as well as a men’s semi-professional team playing in the United Premier Soccer League (UPSL). The UPSL team, remaining under the Inter-Florida FC brand, will form the top of FC Prime’s boys soccer pyramid. Inter-Florida’s youth boys teams will play under the FC Prime brand as part of the Florida Club League 2 and SFUYSA.
All girls teams will remain under the Sunrise Prime FC brand and have access to all league platforms and Tamarac Sports Complex facilities.
“Inter-Florida FC shares the same vision and goals for youth soccer and South Florida as FC Prime and Sunrise Prime FC,” said Sunrise Prime FC Executive Director Alan Hough. “We are thrilled to be able to secure an agreement that will see us working together to the benefit of a larger player pool.”
The aim of the partnership is focused on the development of young soccer players and to provide additional resources and quality facilities for members.
“Providing young players with a pathway to play with former professionals and high level adults before reaching college age is a goal of both organizations,” said Inter-Florida President Raymond Passaro. “Seeing this become a reality through our partnership is a milestone for all involved.”
