NPSL Approval

After a thorough application process and vetting of the Fort Wayne FC ownership, we finally received our acceptance letter from the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL).  

This is exciting.  We started the process by talking to local business and community leaders and received incredible positive feedback.  Nothing could stop us to bring competitive outdoor soccer to Fort Wayne.

The NPSL wrote: “We are very pleased to have you join and we feel Fort Wayne FC can develop into one of our marquis organizations”. We will be a point of pride in this community.

Soccer is known in the world as “the Beautiful Game”.  We want to play this Beautiful Game in this “Beautiful City of Fort Wayne”.  We are Fort Wayne FC. Our slogan is “Protect the Fort!”.

Fort Wayne FC presents the highest competitive play of a men’s outdoor soccer team in Northeast Indiana.  Fort Wayne FC will begin competitive play in May of 2020 in the Great Lakes Conference of the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL), a national outdoor soccer league at the fourth tier of the United States soccer pyramid.  Fort Wayne FC plans to introduce a competitive women’s team in 2022.
