The Indiana Elite Futbol Club is a competitive travel soccer organization dedicated to challenging soccer players to achieve success on and off the field. With a dedicated and professional coaching staff, involved parents and passionate players, Indiana Elite soccer has become the leading soccer club in Northern Indiana, winning championships throughout the Midwest. We have built a coaching staff that is one of the best and most respected from the area's top high schools. Our players are taught discipline and dedication, while learning the soccer skills necessary to take their game to the next level.
Indiana Elite FC prides itself on fielding competitive teams for players with advanced skills. Our teams play across Indiana and Illinois on a weekly basis, travel regularly to Michigan and Ohio, and participate in year round tournaments throughout the United States. Established in 2006 as the Tigers, the Indiana Elite FC is a non-profit organization that is affiliated with the Indiana Soccer League, the Northern Illinois Soccer League, the MRL, USL's exclusive Super Y League and the United State's Development Academy. With more than 20 teams and approximately 300 players ages 8 through 18, the club's goal is to develop a lifelong passion for soccer and enhance not only soccer skills, but leadership, sportsmanship, teamwork, and discipline. In the past 7 years, our organization has seen tremendous growth. As we continue to grow, we are actively enlisting the support of our parent-base community in the form of sponsorships for our own future sports complex in the works. We are currently in the process of zoning a brand new soccer venue in Portage, IN, to bring new and exciting competitive soccer opportunities to our IEFC athletes.
The project boasts 12 full-sized soccer fields which can be easily converted into 24 youth playing fields, a parking lot equipped for 340 cars, family picnic area, and two concession facilities. The economic impact this complex can bring into our community is far reaching, and many opportunities will be created for area businesses to thrive.
Most importantly, the possibilities this venue will provide for our IEFC athletes is priceless. We need your help! We want to reach out to you, the parents, and provide you with the first opportunity to stand behind our club and support your athletes as we work toward building this amazing complex. The benefits to our children from the development of our own tournament-ready venue would be far reaching. This facility would enable IEFC to bring competitive teams into our area for tournament play, allow for even more playing time for our athletes, and give our players additional exposure to scouts.
This is a compelling endeavor not only for our club, but our entire community - and an opportunity for your family to be part of its development as a sponsor. Several sponsorship levels are available from $10,000 to $100,000. Also, if your employer offers a donation or grant matching program, or if you know of someone willing to make an investment in the future of Northern Indiana youth soccer, please refer us. We see this as an amazing way to bring IEFC families and our community together, and allow soccer and the many opportunities it provides to pave the way for our children - and future generations - to flourish.
