About Us

Founded in 2015, Livonia City FC is a 501c3 non-profit soccer club that aims to build a strong, sustainable organization that will look to provide a platform for local players to compete at a high level. Not only that, but our focus is on being integrated into the community through partnerships with local businesses and charities. We believe this will be the recipe for long term stability and success!

LCFC got its start in the Michigan Premier Soccer League, winning the Open Division title in our first season on the field. We followed it up with a First Division and League Cup double a year later.

In 2017, we launched a women’s team in the Great Lakes Women’s League before joining our men’s team in the MPSL in 2019.

Starting in 2021, LCFC is excited to be part of inaugural seasons of both the Midwest Premier League (MWPL) and the United Women’s Soccer League 2 (UWS2)


Midwest Premier League

The MWPL is a regional league run by its member clubs that focus on sustainability and high-level competition. As an affiliate of the National Independent Soccer Association (NISA) LCFC and the other league members will have the opportunity to participate in the NISA Independent Cup

United Women's Soccer League

UWS2 is a new developmental pathway for players in the U20-U23 age group. It provides an introduction to a standards-driven pro-am league and the potential for a UWS First Team in the future.
