Delaware Football Club

Delaware Football Club was created through a collaboration with 3 prominent clubs from Delaware; Delaware Rush Hockessin Soccer Club (now named Delaware FC Hockessin!), Delaware Union and Kirkwood Soccer Clubs.

Delaware FC was formed as an avenue for elite boys and girls in the area to compete at the highest level possible. The Delaware FC concept comes at a time of great changes in US Soccer.

We felt the need to evolve with this emerging landscape and provide a strategic vision to keep pace with the rate of these changes. While we believe our member member clubs continue to provide a great benefit to all young soccer players in our region, with DEFC we are adding another avenue of opportunity and challenge for all players.
