History[edit]

FC Monmouth was founded in 2017 by Jacco de Bruijn, Simon Nynens, Mattia Buffolino, John Kiely, Corbett Donato, Stavros Memtsoudis (all Monmouth County locals), and Federico Girardi.[2] FC Monmouth was assigned to compete in the National Premier Soccer League, the fourth tier of the American Soccer Pyramid, roughly equal to the USL Premier Development League, starting in 2018. On February 7, 2018 it was announced that Brian Woods, the head coach for William Paterson University's men's soccer team, would be the head coach for FC Monmouth's inaugural season.[3] FC Monmouth concluded their first season unbeaten at their home stadium, Count Basie Stadium in Red Bank, New Jersey. They advanced into the playoffs of the Keystone Conference, only to lose against eventual National Cup finalists FC Motown. The inaugural season was widely viewed as a success, as it brought communities in Monmouth County together around the sport of soccer. An official supporters club, "The 732 SC" was founded with its base in Rumson, New Jersey.
