Welcome to Bearfight FC!
We are an American amateur soccer club based in Wilmington, Delaware. This Football Club is for supporters, and run by supporters. We compete in the United States Adult Soccer Association's Inter County (Pennsylvania) League, and currently are in the fifth division of the United States soccer pyramid.
The club’s roots are in a supporter’s group for the Philadelphia Union, the Bearfight Brigade. The Bearfight Brigade started as a group of people who didn’t feel they completely fit in with other supporter groups, and founded their own. Bearfight Brigade have a strong tradition of charitable fundraising, supporting such organizations as Ekisa Ministries who distribute medical and school supplies to orphan children in Uganda, the NF Foundation for CHOP, and Sons of Ben’s Help Kick Hunger among others.
Bearfight FC was founded on August 15th, 2013 at Stoney’s British Pub in Wilmington, Delaware. Jeremy Sharpe and Justin Lee, two of the original members of the Bearfight Brigade made the announcement. Like the Bearfight Brigade, they wanted to start a club that would challenge the way that a soccer club is traditionally run. That is why from day one, Bearfight FC has been supporter-owned and supporter-run.
Bearfight FC played their first season in 2013, just a few weeks after the club was founded. Naturally the first season had a lot of growing pains and learning opportunities, but we expect much better results in 2014. New to the club is coach Brian Kammersgaard, a former professional goalkeeper at Danish club Brøndby IF, as well as the Danish National Team. Coach Kammersgaard is our first full-time coach. This year the club will feature players from countries such as Liberia, Colombia, Honduras, Mexico and the United States.
