Blitz United, Canadian Valley Football Club, and Oklahoma Football Club formed a ground-breaking new partnership between the three clubs and OKC Energy FC. All three clubs have signed on as initial members in the formation of Oklahoma Energy FC.
The concept was created around four basic premises: 1) having a fully integrated soccer club for the state, 2) continuing to unify and grow soccer in the state, 3) striving to always leave the game and the communities better than we found them, 4) creating an environment that allows players in the state to consistently compete at the highest level, not just regionally, but nationally. The 2017/2018 season marked the inaugural season under which the combined opportunities become available.
In its inaugural season, OEFC formed 150 boys and girls teams across 9 age divisions competing in the USYS National League, Region III Southern Region Premier League, and Oklahoma Premier Leagues. Over 2300 players participated in the club, making it one of the most successful programs in the region.
In March of 2018, Oklahoma Energy FC was accepted as part of the U.S. Soccer Girls’ Development Academy (DA), focusing on positively impacting the everyday club environment while connecting players and coaches to the National Teams and college programs.
A cornerstone member of the partnership, Oklahoma Football Club (“OFC”) was established through the affiliation of the competitive soccer programs of the Edmond Soccer Club and the North Oklahoma City Soccer Club. The merger of these competitive programs created the largest soccer club in the state of Oklahoma.
