In 1927, for the promotion of soccer and their heritage, German Immigrants playing in the local Industrial leagues got together and formed the Fort Wayne Sport Club. They began play in the National Soccer League with home games at International Harvester or General Electric fields. Four years later, 4-1/2 acres of land were purchased on Ardmore Avenue and the Fort Wayne Sport Club was born. Over eighty years later we still call it home.
Through the 1960s the Fort Wayne Sport Club rose to become a powerhouse in the region, winning state and regional titles, as well as tournaments all around the Midwest region. In the 70’s The Sport Club began utilizing the talents of exceptional local collegiate players as well as the influx of the South American and Latino players. The Sport Club had become a truly diverse and multi-national soccer club.
Today we continue on with the legacy of those fine young men who have played before us, many of who you can see on the sidelines of our games. We uphold the standards of fair play, community and volunteerism that they have put before us.
