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 will add to this history.
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, local beer and wine, food trucks, bounce houses and after select home games, fireworks.
