AFC Mobile will temporarily suspend its senior team’s operations and will not compete in the 2023 NPSL season. This difficult decision comes after anticipated stadium, travel, and player housing costs have exceeded the club’s budgeted revenue, along with a vast reduction in available volunteer time from ownership due to recent personal matters. What we started seven years ago has been a passion project to bring the highest level of soccer to Mobile, and that will continue to be our mission going forward.
AFC Mobile will continue its other operations during the on-field hiatus, including its youth Academy and management of the Mobile County Sportsplex. The club will work toward resuming play in 2024, and we wish our friends in the NPSL’s Gulf Coast Conference a successful and healthy 2023 season.
