NY Greek American SC
A team to help the NEW YORK GREEK AMERICAN SOCCER TEAM ...
Hello All sports Fans,
New York Greek American SC is a non-for profit Soccer Club with a 501-C Tax exempt status. Founded in Astoria Queens in 1946. We are proud to be one of the oldest Soccer organizations in the country as well as four time winners of the Unites States National Cup and One time winner of the US Amateur Cup in 2014. Hundreds of athletes have come through the organization doors, expanded their playing potential, and moved on to University teams as well as professional Soccer Clubs. We stride and work hard to allow neighborhood athletes to compete at top levels and for the US Cups every years and potential chances to play against MLS teams in the Lamar Hunt Cup.
To maintain the costs of the club a building was purchased nearly 20 years ago by the trustees on Astoria Blvd which was meant to benefit the soccer club. The board created rules and by-laws where All profits made from this property would be forwarded to charities as well as to the Team in order to cover travel expenses, Uniforms, Fields, Referees, Coaching, Etc.
Nearly 5 years ago, due to a fallout among trustee members, funds stopped being forwarded to the Soccer Organization. The club has been trying to collect funds to keep the competitive teams going as well as pay for Legal fees to try and win back possession of the property.
During this time frame a number of younger members have joined the club with interest of re-creating a youth soccer program, all of which has been hindered by the financial in-stability of the Organization.
The expenses have become harder to raise and too much to bear for the group which is now on the cusp of folding after 71 years of competitive play in the Community! We would appreciate all your help in supporting some of the expenses this Organization needs to continue on its course! Any amount can help. Nothing is too small. Reaching our goal will guarantee the teams survival over through the next 4 years!
Please do not allow this Historic Organization to dissapear!
