Now, let’s talk soccer

“We want to start strong,” forward Karol Świderski said during a Wednesday press conference.

That’s the mindset for the entire group, coming off their first inaugural season in 2022, not going as far as they wanted.

Many changes, signings, and new faces will be a part of the 2023 team, but even the new guys are ready to rock.

“I believe in this team,” said newly acquired defender Bill Tiuloma.

The veteran, Tiuloma, was brought to FC in a trade with the Portland Timbers for $800,000 in general allocation money.
