About Wilmington FC
We are an ambitious semi-professional Soccer team in Wilmington North Carolina. To date the squad has featured alumni from Cape Fear and UNC Wilmington as well as former semi pro players from the UPSL, NPSL, and Australia while having collegiate coaching experience at the helm.
In the Wilmington area there are no opportunities for Cape Fear, UNCW, and other locals to play at a high level after their collegiate career. We plan to change that. Providing these opportunities at an appropriate level with local based players is something our community needs and we are excited to be involved in the community as we move this club into the U.S. Soccer pyramid.
