Goal! New Grand Rapids Football Club takes off just in time for the World Cup

Matt Roberts remembers the exact moment he realized how much potential Grand Rapids has for its own semi-professional soccer league.

“February 14, I can tell you exactly when it was,” Roberts says. “I was reading a Major League Soccer article about Nashville FC and I jumped on a soccer Facebook page for Grand Rapids soccer and kind of reached out to everybody else and said, ‘Hey, would everybody be interested in doing this’ and from there it just kind of grew and grew and to be honest with you, I’m a little bit shocked at how quickly it has grown.”
