Kingston FC is a Canadian soccer team based in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. The team was awarded a franchise in 2011 as a member of the Canadian Soccer League, a league not sanctioned by a FIFA-recognized body.

The club fields two teams in the CSL, a 1st Division professional team, Kingston FC and a Reserve Division semi-professional team, Kingston FC Reserve. The club began play on May 5, 2012 in their inaugural CSL season. For the upcoming 2014 CSL season, Kingston FC trains and plays their home games at the Queen's University West Campus Turf Field, located at Johnson Street and John A. Macdonald Boulevard in Kingston.

History[edit]

The team began play in the Reserve Division of the Canadian Soccer League in 2011, however they played most of their games as double headers in Maple, Ontario rather than in Kingston.[1] Kingston FC teams played their first full seasons in the CSL in 2012, finishing at or near the bottom of the standings in both the first and second divisions. The club enjoyed a remarkable turnaround 2013 CSL season with the 1st Division team, which was in first place for much of the current season, clinching the CSL regular season championship on September 29 with a 5–3 road win in Burlington. Both the First and Reserve division teams qualified for the 2013 CSL playoffs, the first post-season play ever in the history of Kingston FC. The Reserves dropped a 1–0 decision away to Toronto Croatia Reserves in the CSL quarter-finals. Kingston FC's first Division team, however, won home quarter-final and semi-final encounters against Serbian White Eagles (2–1) and London City (4–2), respectively, before losing the CSL Playoff Championship Final by a 3–1 score to SC Waterloo in Niagara Falls on November 3, 2013.

Kingston FC opened its 2014 CSL Training Camp in Kingston on April 22, 2014, and kicked-off its third season of operation in the CSL with a road game against York Region Shooters on May, 25 and its home opener in Kingston on May 31 against Niagara United SC.
