History

Tallahassee SC was founded on May 3, 2018 by residents of Tallahassee, FL and Leon County, FL looking to bring a semi-professional soccer team to Tallahassee.[2]

In February of 2019, Josh Bruno was named as the first head coach of the team.[3]. The club played its first ever match against the Savannah Clovers on May 4, 2019 in front of over 600 fans at the FSU Intramural Fields. [4]

On November 12, 2019, it was announced that Tallahassee SC would join the National Premier Soccer League in a newly formed Gulf Coast Conference that featured Tallahassee, Port City FC, AFC Mobile, Pensacola FC, and NPSL mainstays the New Orleans Jesters and Jacksonville Armada.[5]
