Welcome Alabama Gulf Coast United
Updated 7/26/2014

The Alabama Gulf Coast United community in Gulf Shores has grown tremendously in 2 short years under the leadership of Viktor, Eddie and Christian and now will come alongside Mobile Bay FC  to form 'Mobile Bay FC Alabama Gulf Coast United'.  Training with their familiar coaches will remain in Orange Beach but now they will register with MBFC allowing sharing of players for games between the two clubs.  Everyone is extremely excited to transition from a training only program to have their young men and women get games also.  As a part of the connection they will receive MBFC game and training uniforms and MBFC will send coaches to Gulf Shores every other week to conduct skills sessions with their players.  We look forward to continuing soccer growth in the community while helping players gain the valuable playing time that every young player needs for development.
