Bad FC 40 and up soccer team

I am putting together a 40 and up soccer team to play in the North Texas Premier Soccer Association‘s summer league. I hope for it to continue in the fall if there’s enough interest.

The team name is Bad FC. We’re not bad. We’re Bad!


  • Start date: June 27
  • Number of games: 6
  • Dates and times of games: Games are typically on Sundays, starting on any odd-numbered hour between 9 AM and 7 PM. One game per Sunday. Dates/times may be different for make up games (rainouts).
  • Game locations: I guess that games will mostly be in The Colony, Carrollton, Richardson, and Balch Springs. I will specify Samuell-Garland Park (Hobby Fields) for our home field, hoping we get more in the east Dallas area.
  • Practices: We may have 1 or 2 highly optional practices before the season begins.
  • Age cutoff: Must be at least 40 years old by June 27, 2021.
  • Gender eligibility: Men and women can play. (NTPSA is traditionally a men’s league, but it is open to men and women.)
  • Roster size: 25. I plan to fill it completely! Old fogeys have a lot going on, so we need a full roster to assure enough players at each game.
  • Registration fee: $105 (plus an extra $22 if you have never played in NTPSA before; pays for your North Texas Soccer registration). This covers:
    • $35 payable to NTPSA (and the $22, if applicable)
    • $35 per person to cover $75/game referee fees for 7 games
    • $10 per person to cover equipment that every team must have on hand (1 net, $98, and 2 corner flags, $39; we must also supply a ball, but I prefer to just use one of our personal balls each game)
    • $25 for a jersey (I’ll coordinate order, will shoot for reasonable material)
    • Some contingency funds (exact amount depends on how many players we get)

No payment due yet. I first want to see if we can assemble a team.

Transparency: Payments with be made to me. I will hold funds in trust for the team and be transparent with accounting. Leftover funds will be transferred to the fall-season Bad FC 40+ team or, if it does not make for the fall, refunded to the summer players.

Email me at if interested. Give me your phone number, too. We will use the GroupMe app for team communications and game coordination, so get it installed.
