MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - After a one year hiatus, the beloved soccer club AFC Mobile is returning in the summer of 2024. AFC Mobile’s Guillermo ‘Memo’ Lumbreras III joined us in our Gulf Coast Spotlight to talk about the return of the club.

Below is information released by AFC Mobile:

AFC Mobile is proud to announce we are returning from hiatus and joining the Gulf Coast Premier League for the coming 2024 season. The GCPL is a non-league, amateur division under the United States Soccer Federation. The GCPL includes teams from across the Gulf Coast and Texas. Regular season play begins in early May and ends in early July. While on hiatus AFC Mobile has continued developing and expanding its youth academy. Now in its 4th year, the academy serves the Mobile County community youth soccer players from age three to teen in their development and love for the game. AFC Mobile has also been busy with management of the Mobile County Soccer Complex (MoCoSoCo). The complex has since added a concessions and restrooms facility and is now preparing to move onto additional growth of the complex.
