Announcing Charlotte United - Palmetto FC (CUPFC)

For Immediate Release: Announcing Charlotte United - Palmetto FC (CUPFC) – a partnership between Charlotte United FC and Fort Mill’s Palmetto United FC


For the mutual benefit of players in the South Charlotte, NC, Fort Mill, Tega Cay, Indian Land, Lancaster, and Clover, SC geographies, Charlotte United and Palmetto United Futbol Clubs are partnering to expand the footprint of Charlotte United into the Fort Mill, SC area.  The new club will bring the well-respected soccer leadership, administrative staff, and resources of the larger and established Charlotte United FC to the Fort Mill, SC area beginning with tryouts for the 2016-2017 season scheduled for the weeks of May 2nd and May 9th at the Palisades Soccer Complex.

Both clubs will maintain separate Board of Directors, finances, and separate affiliation with respective SCYSA and NCYSA state associations.  Shared resources will allow establishment of best practices with deployment and management of coaches, finances, administration, fields, marketing/sponsorships and tournaments.  Palmetto FC terminated their relationship with Carolina Rush March 19 of this year.

The new partnership will be uniquely positioned to leverage existing and planned soccer complexes in the Palisades (home complex), Fort Mill, and Ballantyne areas to serve South Charlotte, Fort Mill and surrounding geographies.  Focus will be on maintaining a reputation for high performance while continuing to invest in player development including advanced training for local recreation players.  The Charlotte United family-friendly, diverse and inclusive culture is seen as melding seamlessly with Palmetto United.
