PENSACOLA, Fla. (WKRG) — Pensacola Football Club 1559 will be undergoing some league changes for the upcoming season.

The two-time National Champion women’s program is joining the Gulf Coast Premier League for 2023, while the men’s division will not return to the GCPL.

PFC’s women’s program was founded as the Gulf Coast Texans in 2011. Winning both the 2012 and 2019 Women’s Premier Soccer League (WPSL) titles and appearing in the 2017 and 2018 WPSL finals.

PFC underwent ownership changes in 2019 and has since strengthened its relationship with local youth organization, Coastal Rush.

“Under previous ownership the women’s side was in the WPSL up until last year when they made the move to the UWS,” Vice President Jonathan Rednour said. “About halfway through the season last year, they folded. I mean, the travel was too much for them. They were traveling all the way to Atlanta.”

With the GPSL being more regionalized, Rednour said this will give the women’s team more people to play with less travel.
