Assyria Futbol Club (AFC) is a semi-professional soccer team of the Assyrian American Association of San Jose. The Assyria Futbol Club (AFC) started as part of the Peninsula Soccer League (PSL) in the highest division which is the Major Division – this league is not only a very competitive league, but is affiliated with the US Soccer Federation. AFC is comprised of young athletes who through soccer are able to build an environment where youth feel a sense of community and camaraderie.
The team was founded by Eilrada Betkolia and donated to Assyrian American Association of San Jose in 2013 during the administration of Rochelle Yousefian and Firas Jatou. After the adoption, the new leadership of the Association decided to appoint a management team whose sole responsibility would be to manage the team as a semi-professional soccer team.
