My name is Amadu Myers and I am the owner & General Manager of the Sioux Falls THUNDER FC. THUNDER FC is a newly formed semi-professional soccer team based in Sioux Falls SD. Our mission is to expand the game of soccer at all levels in Sioux Falls by providing local players a chance to play at a higher level of soccer while inspiring young kids around the area.
In 2015 I had the opportunity to play on a semi-professional team starting up in Fargo, ND called FC FARGO and helped take the team to the American Premier League Championship. Now in 2017 I have the opportunity to bring this level of sport to Sioux Falls, SD.
The SF THUNDER FC have been invited to join the National Premier Soccer League. NPSL teams are eligible to participate in the U.S. Open Cup through their affiliation with the U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) and the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA). The NPSL remains to be one of the largest national leagues in North America and is an amazing opportunity for players to be seen by Major League Soccer.
With great opportunity comes great expense and I am discovering that jerseys, field rental, and travel expenses hang in the way of this dream for young athletes. we are going to need the entire Sioux Falls soccer community to help to make this happen! We want to make this a great experience for all involved - players, coaches and fans! We want to create an environment and atmosphere for the area's soccer fans to enjoy.
We feel that there isn't enough opportunity for soccer players to continue playing at a high level once their high school or college careers are over. We also feel that there isn't a high level of soccer in the area to offer those players still in college who are looking to keep their skills sharp over the summer.
Thanks for supporting your local team!
