Greeks United:

Local Soccer Team Finds Success

Through a Grecian Formula

Half a world away and more than enough time zones ahead, the World Cup is taking place in South Korea and Japan keeping millions of soccer fans glued to their televisions all this month.  Closer to home, in Fairfax, VA, a local club team, Greeks United, is taking the field on Sunday mornings, providing fans with an opportunity to see a group of local Greeks coming together to take on the twelve other teams in the second division of the Northern Virginia Soccer League.

We were tipped off to this team after being contacted by a few of its members.  Greeks United boasts a 19-man roster of local Greek-American players, mostly from Northern Virginia, who have competed in top club leagues, Division I NCAA, and even at the professional level.  They're currently near the top of the table in their league.  Two players, Tasos Vatikiotis and Mike Papadopoulos, are ranked among the league's top scorers with Vatikiotis being listed in the Top 100 scorers across the Hotstat Soccer Network's affiliation of leagues.

Greeks United recently launched a website for fans of the team to keep up with team.   On the site, fans find the team's roster, stats and schedules and pictures.  The team has two regular season games left on Sunday, June 16th and Sunday June 23rd, both at 9:00 A.M. at Grist Mill field in Mt. Vernon, VA.  So if you have a chance this Sunday morning or next, take a short drive and cheer on a team of your fellow Greek-Americans in their quest for the league championship.
