"Providing a safe, professional and inclusive organization for players, coaches and families to be part of, and grow with, the Lansdowne family"
Lansdowne Yonkers FC was formed in 1997 with the ambition of furthering the role of soccer in the lives of Irish emigrants living in the Bronx and Yonkers. Born in the Lansdowne Bar on Broadway, Riverdale by a small core of committed activists, today the club boasts three adult teams along with 400+ players and 22 youth teams. The club is home of many backgrounds and ethnicities and has grown within New York soccer to become one of the largest club in the area. The club is recognized as one of the leading amateur clubs in American soccer and was crowned National Amateur Champion in 2017 & 2019. We aim to further develop our adult and youth program and give the chance to more players, families and members to partake in our program.
Since 2019, Lansdowne Yonkers FC is an official 501 ( c ) 3 Non For Profit Corporation.
In recent years, Lansdowne Yonkers FC has grown in to a powerhouse in the NY soccer and US soccer scene by taking on and challenging for the National title every year. in 2017, the dream became reality when Lansdowne Yonkers FC became National champions. Two years later, in 2019, it was time again. Since winning its two National titles and competing in the 3rd round of the US Open Cup (most respected tournament in the US), facing against MLS and ULS teams, Lansdowne is now on its way to defend its national title and bringing more success home to Yonkers in 2020.
The success of Lansdowne’s First Team has not gone unnoticed in the US or overseas. A growing youth program of 400+ players has seen a tremendous development in line with its First Team’s success. Overseas trips to Ireland and Foyle Cup has also put Lansdowne on the map across the pond.
