McLean Youth Soccer and SYC unveil name and branding for new ECNL alliance

McLean Youth Soccer (MYS) and Springfield South County Youth Club (SYC) unveiled the name and logo for the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) alliance announced earlier this month.

The new alliance will be known as Virginia Union FC. This name embodies the MYS and SYC collective goal to join forces in attracting the best players and coaches in the Northern Virginia area to compete within the alliance teams at the ECNL level.

The logo combines the colors of the founding clubs, with green and white representing MYS and blue and orange representing SYC. The combined colors represent the continued strength of both clubs’ identities with a new commitment to the excellence of the new alliance at the ECNL level. Each of the stars represents the MYS and SYC clubs.

McLean ECNL Boys 2008 players Nour Sharkas and Christian Borno were credited with conceiving of the alliance’s name, as part of a naming contest featuring a $100 gift card as a prize. ECNL player identification sessions are underway for the alliance.
