Lionsbridge FC competes in USL League Two, the top pre-professional men’s soccer league in North America. The club was recognized in 2019 as the USL League Two Franchise of the Year. Founded in 2018, Lionsbridge FC has led the Eastern Conference in attendance in each of its first three seasons with huge crowds and an incredible fanbase. Eight Lionsbridge FC players have gone on to sign professional contracts -- three in the United States, three in England and one in Sweden and Australia. Home games are played on the campus of Christopher Newport University. Every game is preceded by a community festival with bounce houses, family entertainment, music, beer garden and the area’s top food trucks. All home matches are streamed live to a worldwide audience on Facebook.
