BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (Feb. 19, 2024) – The Women’s Premier Soccer League welcomes BC United to its Roster of Teams for this summer’s competition. BC United will compete as one of two expansion sides in the Lake Erie Division of the newly formed Great Lakes Conference.

“We are honored to join such an established women’s premier league,” Paul Marco, BC United director of coaching, said.

“Our community has a large group of high-quality female collegiate players we are continuing to cultivate and believe the WPSL is the right forum to partner with. The quality of soccer and competition the league [WPSL] provides will further them [players] in their future endeavors.”

Established as a youth community soccer organization, BC United Soccer Association has been focused on growing and fostering soccer in Broome County, N.Y., and surrounding areas for nearly three decades. In 2017, the organization added BC United Premier to allow the best players from New York and Pennsylvania to come together and compete within this advanced program.

The club prides itself on cultivating an environment that strives to understand and grow with the evolution of soccer in the area and across the country. BC United has since become an organization that its community relies on to receive dynamic and relevant training as well as competition that allows players to reach their potential and goals. The club seeks to remain on the cutting edge of today’s game by providing its membership with opportunities that maximize the ability to realize their playing potential.

“Our club continues to grow soccer and the community’s love for this great sport,” Marco said. “The level of play in our hometown will only help us in continuing this mission.”

Marco has been named BC United’s head coach as the club enters its inaugural WPSL season this summer. Marco has led the men’s program at Binghamton University for over 20 years and holds a National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) advanced national diploma as well as a United States Soccer Federation (USSF) B license. Marco has also been a member of the NSCAA national staff for two decades.
