About Cleveland SC
Cleveland Soccer Club (SC) is a Semi-Professional, Men’s soccer team that competes in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL). The team comprises some of the best soccer talent Northeast Ohio has to offer. The team roster is comprised of both current college players and former college players that are looking to continue their competitive careers. The NPSL is considered to be the 4th division of US Soccer and as such, is granted access to the US Open Cup.
Cleveland SC’s owner, Samuel Seibert started the team in 2018 after being approached by a group of former players that wanted to see competitive soccer be represented in the Cleveland/Metro area. This led Samuel to work with a group of former players to put together both a front office and technical staff that worked tirelessly to field a team within 90 days of forming.
