FIRST TOUCH: GEORGIA REVOLUTION FC
by Jason Bruzzichesi – March 20, 2017
In our latest interview series First Touch, we focus on the smaller, lesser known teams of the NPSL, and spend a little time getting to know them, their fan bases, and their ambitions for the club. Midfield Press’s Jason Bruzzichesi sat down with Alec Morrison, the Media Director for the Georgia Revolution FC, and asked a few questions about the club, the ownership, and how the Open Cup is failing the amateur side of soccer.
JB: Hey Alec. Let’s get right to it. Can you give us a quick overview of the team and a brief history of how you got here?
AM: We’re a small grassroots team that supports local soccer. And by grassroots, I mean we work with local high school soccer programs for fundraisers, we have a Reserve team that plays in the local amateur league and we look for the best local talent to fill out our teams. We aren’t big enough of a club to house players so we look for the best local talent to compete in the NPSL.
