Club News

        • Kingston FC concluded its maiden season in the CSL on October 6th, 2012.  Since then, the club has been actively engaged in planning for the 2013 CSL season and setting goals for improved performance both on the field and behind the scenes. Kingston FC has started the 2013 CSL season with a rush, going undefeated in four exhibition games and trouncing Brampton City 6-2 in the club’s home opener on May 5th.
        • For 2013, Kingston FC will strive to reach the CSL playoffs, a goal that club management and players alike consider to be a realistic and reachable target for our 1st division team.  A top eight 1st division finish in our second season would be a significant achievement for the club.  Coupled with a vast on-field improvement for our 2nd division team, which also won its home opener 3-2 against Brampton City, Kingston FC has set its sights for a respectable 2013 performance in the always-tough CSL.
        • Kingston FC has based both its 1st and 2nd division teams in Kingston for the 2013 season, and management has recently concluded an agreement with Queen’s University, whereby the Queen’s University West Campus Turf Field will serve as the club’s training field and CSL home stadium venue.  For more news on the new agreement with Queen’s University, please please visit “Press Releases” on this website.
        • Management has also decided upon a switch to Sunday afternoons for the club’s home games during the 2013 CSL season  While Saturday evenings proved workable for the club last season, a move to Sunday afternoons will help to bring young fans and families out to cheer the teams on. The club has retained three Saturday evening home dates this season – June 1st, July 6th and July 20th – corresponding to the weekends of the Porto tournament in June and the girls and boys Ambassador Cup tournaments hosted by the Cataraqui Clippers in July. Kingston FC will work together with the Clippers to promote both the Ambassador Cup and the Kingston FC Saturday evening home games on weekends of the tournament.
        • The club has also secured a great schedule from the CSL for 2013 that is based on alternating home and away weekends, a move that adds some predictability and pattern to the schedule and certainty for the home fans.  The 2012 schedule saw Kingston FC play three consecutive home games in May and again in September, but only three home games in total all of June and July.   2013 schedule that found our boys playing in Kingston every second weekend is what club management will target.
        • Kingston FC fans who felt cold and hungry at last season’s fixtures may be in for better times in the 2013 season since the club has succeeded in securing certain food and beverage concession rights in its new agreement with Queen’s University.  Talks are underway to improve the hospitality concessions at the new West Campus home pitch, and more to follow on this matter in the days ahead.
        • Kingston FC 2013 season tickets are now on sale and available on this website under “Tickets”.  The club recently unveiled its three types of season ticket passes and prices, including the introduction of a family season ticket pass that provides access for a family of four to all Kingston FC home games at the family-friendly price of $175. Also new this year is a student season ticket pass for only $40, with student I.D. proof of purchase. Individual season ticket passes are available for only $75.
        • Recruitment efforts to strengthen the Kingston FC teams in 2013 are well underway.  The club is actively signing a much bolstered 1st and 2nd division roster for 2013 that includes some returning standouts from the 2012 season plus a mix of new local and international players as well as some outstanding CIS university all-stars.  Player signing announcements will continue to be issued periodically over the next few months.
        • Kingston FC has announced Open Try-Outs in Kingston at Queen’s West Campus turf field from March 18th to March 20th, 2013. The Try-Outs will be led by Head Coach Colm Muldoon, and players wishing to try-out will pay $50 for two hour sessions on each of March 18th and 19th. The club will invite back a reduced group of players for the final session on March 20th, and will award contracts to top players who the club feel are qualified to play pro soccer in the CSL. In addition, Kingston FC will be looking for several taxi squad players who will begin training with the club in mid-July and join the roster in mid-August to replace several players returning to university to join their CIS teams.
