A strategic partnership between two local youth clubs has led to the creation of Hex FC, a new club being formed by FC Bucks and PA Dominion ahead of the 2023-2024 season.
The two clubs began a strategic partnership in summer 2021.
Hex FC will be sponsored by Capelli Sports and will field ECNL and U.S. Youth Soccer teams for boys and girls at the U13-U19 age groups.
“This is a very exciting opportunity for our regional soccer landscape,” FC Bucks president Ray McGettigan stated in a news release. “We have two established clubs, FC Bucks and PA Dominion, coming together to form HEX FC that will provide the ultimate pathway to the ECNL Girls and ECNL Boys programs. Together we will be able to offer youth players the access to top quality facilities along with excellent training and instruction.”
Both McGettigan and PA Dominion president Martin Gibbons emphasized the benefits of the two clubs working together.
“We are very excited to once again grow our geographical footprint with a very trusted and likeminded club, FC Bucks,” Gibbons stated in the news release. “Working with FCB and their leadership the past 18 months has been very positive and rewarding. HEX FC will offer the top platform in the country to our elite boys and girls players, the ECNL. With passion, expertise, and diligence we are ready to continue to take forward steps to grow our club and enhance the experience for our membership. We are certain HEX FC is that next step.”
According to an FAQ on HexFC.com, the new club is “neither a merger nor takeover.”
“A wholly new club organization called HEX FC is being formed,” the FAQ states. “Affiliate clubs will retain their current identities at the intramural, select and travel U12 and below. At U13 and older, players will have the opportunity to play at the highest level by trying out for a HEX FC team, if desired.”
