UNA students AJ Santos and Loic Dimithe established the club as an outlet for UNA students to play the sport they love. UNA does not have a men's soccer program, but UNA FC hopes to take on other collegiate club teams soon. UNA FC is recognized by the University and is open to male and female students of all skill level players, the best of which will fill out the competitive roster.

My Favorite New Soccer Website, Huh? has been publishing some very interesting articles in the past week. The first is a very detailed article on ESPN's coverage of the World Cup.
