F.C. Steel and North Parkland Athletic Association Announce Strategic Soccer Partnership

January 9, 2018: F.C. Steel and North Parkland Athletic Association (NPAA) are pleased to announce a strategic soccer partnership. Beginning with the spring 2018 season, the two organizations will share staff, expertise, fields, and facilities.

As part of the agreement, North Parkland players will have access to F.C. Steel technical clinics and will have the opportunity to join F.C. Steel’s travel and premier teams as secondary players. The two clubs are also combining their U7 and U8 teams under the F.C. Steel banner.

“This partnership will enable North Parkland to provide a complete progression to our players, from recreational to travel to premier soccer,” said Mary Kotch, director of North Parkland Soccer. “This is a first in the Lehigh Valley.”

“We are excited to work with North Parkland,” added Christian Kittelstad, president of FC Steel. “Like us, NPAA prides itself on training and development. Our agreement puts F.C. Steel one step closer to our ultimate goal, which is to serve every soccer player in the Lehigh Valley and help them achieve their dreams.”

F.C. Steel, founded in 2017, is planning an aggressive expansion this year with the addition of multiple teams for boys and girls born between 2002 and 2011. Recently, it signed Perfect Touch Soccer as its exclusive training partner and plans to break ground on a new indoor and outdoor soccer facility later this year.

If anyone has questions on this partnership please contact our Board Member VP Patrick Lee. We have created this union to enrich the soccer programs together - it’s all about the kids! We can also share our insurance policy which has FC Steel on it and we are not subleasing North Whitehall Township Fields to FC Steel.
