About First XI Sports


 

First XI was formed after a youth team from Reading FC was stranded in Charlotte, NC in 2010 because of a Volcano eruption that caused Volcanic Ash to close most of the airports throughout Europe.
   
The outpouring of support from the local community was so amazing that the guys were convinced they had to come back and wanted to do somthing to impact the local community.
   
Everything we do is built around enriching the lives of those in our communities through the game of soccer.
    
We do this through are incredible camps, eye opening trips, helping local clubs and coaches learn and get better and through great conversations with parents and local community leaders. 
   
First XI Sports is dedicated to bettering the game of soccer and our communities.
