History[edit]

The Aegean Hawks Football Club was founded in 1996 by a group of Greek and Cypriot university students from the Arlington, Virginia area. The team plays in the Washington Premier League, which is a member of the United States Adult Soccer Association Region I group of leagues. The Hawks are record 8-time WPL champions, having taken the title in the Spring 2006, Fall 2006, Spring 2007, Fall 2007, Spring 2008, Fall 2008, Spring 2009 and Fall 2009 seasons.[1] They also won the USASA National Amateur Cup in 2009, in addition to numerous other local and regional trophies.

The Hawks also have a good pedigree in qualifying for the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. They made their first appearance in 2007, overcoming Greek American AA and AC United in their regional qualification group[1] before falling to USL Second Division pro side Harrisburg City Islanders in the first round of tournament proper.[1]

They returned to the tournament in 2009[1] by beating the Vereinigung Erzgebirge and Charm City FC, before losing 1-0 to USL Second Division side Real Maryland Monarchs in a game which was abandoned in the 74th minute due to lightning.[1]

After failing to advance far enough in regional USASA Open Cup qualifiers in 2010 and 2011, the Hawks made a triumphant return to the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup in 2012 to knock off the Carolina Dynamo (Professional Development League) in the First Round. The Hawks fell to the Richmond Kickers in the second round by a score of 4-0.
