Windsor TFC Merges with Amherstburg Fusion
Windsor TFC (WTFC) has announced a significant agreement with the Amherstburg Soccer Club (ASC) that will allow ASC’s competitive program named Fusion to merge with WTFC. “We initiated these discussions with WTFC, and the Board quickly determined that this is the best path forward for our competitive players after hearing about their long-term plan”, said ASC president Terry Sawchuk. “The pandemic has caused a lot of concern about how we go forward in a way that serves our community and region. We felt consolidation makes perfect sense”, added Sawchuk.
The addition of the Fusion program raises the number of registered players to 200 for WTFC. “This is a very exciting development and opportunity for our Club”, said Vancho Cirovski, President of WTFC. “Our club depends on cooperation from local clubs to support what is called the district program. Frankly, it has been a challenge to invite cooperation, so it was very exciting to hear about the interest from Fusion. “ added Cirovski. We look forward to serving the Amherstburg community and growing the WTFC Fusion program. ASC will continue to operate the local non-competitive “house league” program.
“For Windsor TFC to thrive, they need to connect with grass roots clubs and players at the earliest level to inspire a technical learning and passion for the game. The ASC and Fusion program is a perfect fit for WTFC. We have great kids and outstanding facilities, and are excited about the prospects this relationship will offer on many levels” – Fusion Technical Director Rob Arce
Windsor TFC is a pro-am soccer club and youth development academy , which participates in League1 Ontario, the premier soccer league in the Province and the West Region Soccer League, a youth regional program.
