Soccer Merger Establishes BOREAL FC – Run the North

Three Rivers Soccer Association and North Metro Soccer Association, after two years of partnership, announce they have entered into a merger to establish a prominent youth soccer organization in Minnesota and will operate under the new name BOREAL Futbol Club,  BFC or BOREAL (pronounced baw-ree-uhl).

This exciting new journey will begin Fall 2020. BOREAL FC will operate a comprehensive competitive program as well as two community-based recreational programs.

Youth soccer in the midwest is adapting to the ever-changing soccer landscape and BOREAL FC will have a stronger base for player development and the competitive capacity to provide the very best for families at every level. BOREAL will have the opportunity to invest in families across both communities by combining and expanding its vast coaching staff. 

Read what some have said about the merger:

“With the changing landscape of youth soccer in Minnesota, being able to adapt, integrate and evolve is necessary to deliver programming that can create a comprehensive youth soccer environment for all players.” Brady Hicks, North Metro Director of Coaching
