Concepts are Born, go through Infancy, Childhood, Adolescence, and than become Adults
Do you know the name Hans Kamper? Some of you hard core Football fans may know it but, I guarantee all of you reading this know what he created. On October 22, 1899 Hans Kamper put an ad add in Los Deportes declaring his desires to create a Football Club. Fast Forward from 1899 through its maturity and what Hans Kamper created was something I bet anyone may know or heard of, FC Barcelona, ring a bell?
Our baby, GS Croatia FC, was conceived was over a few cold pints at a local watering hole. Yes, we know many conceptions involve alcohol but, let’s stay focused .
We are currently playing in the North Jersey Soccer league with our future sights on entering the NPSL or PDL league in 2015. The NPSL and PDL leagues are couple steps below the MLS and is where many Clubs started and became members of the MLS. Over the past year we have amassed a large fan base and have created a large social media network- our site is averaging 400+ visits a day worldwide. Imagine if Hans Kamper had twitter or a website?
What our infant has accomplished
- After starting 1-3 we than went 8-1
- We Finished in 1st place
- We will be promoted to higher division
- We amassed a +27 goal differential
- We averaged 3.6 goals per game
Our visions for childhood to becoming an adult
Well, we signed up several major sponsors for 2013/2014 season for help keep the club going. We are designing and will have custom trademarked uniform designs for our team.
GS Croatia FC is always looking for talented players to contribute to the club. As we continue to grow, our goal is to start youth soccer academy and youth team to play in competitive youth league.
We are developing team store with our brand t-shirts, scarves, our uniforms and other souvenirs for our fans.
No matter where we end up, how big we get, how successful we become, our goal is promote the great game of soccer with respect, without politics, and for the next generation to enjoy this great game.
At the end we can not forget our coaches who worked with our team and recruited some major talent. They made it happened.
Thank you all…..Bunch of GREAT GUYS with love for soccer. Thank you for great season.
