MOST COMMENTED

[NASL 2015]The new NASL team in Jacksonville has been named Armada FC in a nod to the region's rich Spanish heritage and strong military connection.

A fan vote also selected the soccer club's colors -- navy blue, royal blue, gold and white, reflecting the area's close links to the area's U.S. Navy and other military installations.
 
"From day one, we committed to make this club the fans' team, the community's team, Jacksonville's team," said Armada FC owner Mark Frisch. "We are honored and proud to reflect the suggestions of our fans in our team name and logo while aligning with the history and tradition of this region."
 
Jacksonville mayor Alvin Brown was among the city officials who joined NASL and Armada FC executives at Tuesday's unveiling at the Jacksonville Landing.
 
"We love sports in Jacksonville, and we are excited to welcome our newest professional sports team," said Brown. "Soccer is a great family-friendly game and it has a growing base of fans. We want everyone to know that Jacksonville is soccer territory."
