The History Makers

It was an idea that began with “Why don’t we do this” when it was uttered into the thin blue air in 2009 at Aviation Park in Redondo Beach and neither co-founder, Bilge or Onur Coskun, could tell how big the movement was going to be.

What started with one team at South Bay Sports, a local adult league, turned into 7 teams under the Lionside FC banner when in September 2017, Lionside FC became a pro-development club beginning its new journey in the United Premier Soccer League Championship Division. After making league history by setting the points record en route to winning an impossible undefeated championship, Lionside FC promoted to the Pro-Premier Division for the Spring 2018 Season where it has been competing ever since.

From devout members to a massive community of over 100 avid soccer players, Lionside FC’s mission is to serve teen and youth soccer players in the local area and support the overall US Soccer mission.
