About Lionsbridge FC:
Lionsbridge FC competes in USL League Two, the top amateur men’s soccer league in North America. In 2018, Lionsbridge FC led the Eastern Conference in attendance with nearly 1,400 fans per game. From the inaugural team, four Lionsbridge FC players signed professional contracts -- in the United States, England and Sweden. The roster is comprised of top locally-based collegiate and international players. Home games are played at Pomoco Stadium on the campus of Christopher Newport University. Every game is preceded by a 2-hour community festival with bounce houses, family entertainment, music, beer garden and the area’s top food trucks. New in 2019, every home game will be televised to nearly a half-million households across the commonwealth of Virginia via Cox Cable.
1) Reflect and add to the amazing spirit that already exists on the Peninsula; 2) Provide positive role models for our young people; 3) Shine a light on the important work being done by the non-profit organizations in our community; 4) Support local businesses; 5) Provide a first-class experience for players who are looking to launch their professional soccer careers.
It's about more than soccer. It's community. It's a family night out. It's local flavor. Every game at Christopher Newport University's POMOCO Stadium is a community festival with something for everyone: music, a beer garden, food trucks, bounce houses and after select home games, fireworks.
Why "Lionsbridge FC?"
Since 1932, the Lions Bridge has been an iconic Peninsula landmark, majestically situated in The Mariners' Museum and Park on the banks of the James River. The bridge has long served as a gathering place for our residents and Lionsbridge FC is adding to this history.
