VSI (VisionPro Sports Institute) Tampa Bay FC is an American soccer team that plays in the USL Pro league, the third tier of the American soccer pyramid, in 2013. The foundation of the team was announced on November 16, 2011 alongside the creation of sister teams for the amateur USL Premier Development League (PDL), women's W-League and youth Super-20 League.
The VSI Tampa Flames were established in 2011 as part of a broader move by the English soccer development academy, VisionPro Sports Institute, to build a foundation for youth and professional soccer in the United States. VSI partnered with the local Brandon, Florida area youth soccer organization, West Florida Flames, to build "the perfect platform for vertical progression, giving talented youngsters the opportunity to progress from junior soccer all the way through to the professional game," according to VSI's CEO, Simon Crane.
With the USL Pro team to serve as the pinnacle of the youth pyramid for men, VSI also announced the formation of teams in the USL PDL, Super-20 League and women's W-League, all within the organization of the United Soccer Leagues (USL). These teams started play in 2012.
Their first game was played on March 30, 2012, losing to Phoenix FC 1-0. They defeated the Los Angeles Blues 1-0 for their first win on April 2, 2013. Antonio Neto scored the first goal in team history.
Matt Weston resigned as Head Coach on May 8, 2013. Joel Harrison was named as Interim Head Coach.
