BOCA RATON, FL — In order to focus on the National Premier Soccer League tournament in the summer of 2019, Boca Raton Football Club has elected to not participate in the upcoming American Premier Soccer League (APSL) 2019 Summer Championship.
“Over the last two seasons, we played both competitions during the summer of 2017 and 2018 and we did not reach the level of success we had wanted to,” said club president Douglas Heizer. “In order to focus on the 2019 NPSL season, we will forgo the 2019 APSL Summer Championship.”
A two-time APSL Summer Championship Champion, Boca Raton FC won the APSL Summer Championship twice, in 2015 and 2016, and reached the semifinals in 2017 and 2018.
The Club remains committed to the APSL and plans to participate in the 2019 APSL Fall Season.
The commitment to local soccer continues for Boca Raton FC who are currently fielding two teams in local competitions. Boca Raton FC’s Florida Gold Coast League team currently holds a 2-1-0 (W-L-T) record, while the Boca Raton FC Beaches Adult Soccer League holds a 2-3-1 record.
“Our commitment to local soccer remains,” added head coach Jim Rooney. “But the rigorous NPSL schedule makes it very difficult to field two teams for games that sometimes are at the same time.”
