Oakland County Football Club is an American soccer club based in Royal Oak, Michigan, located in the Detroit metropolitan area. Beginning with the 2020 season, they compete in USL League Two. The club previously competed in the United Premier Soccer League and Premier League of America.


Oakland County FC was founded as Oakland United FC in 2015 and played its first season in the Great Lakes Premier League.

In its inaugural season, Oakland United finished fourth in the five-team league, with a record of 2–1–5.

The club rebranded for the 2016 season, with a new name and new logo by New York City-based graphic designer Matthew Wolff.[1] They finished with a final record of 4–2–4, rendering them a fourth-place finish in the PLA East Division.

On January 27, 2017, the club announced that it would be moving to a more centralized location in Royal Oak.[2][3]

In February 2017, the club announced a new coaching staff: Nicolino Morana was hired as head coach on February 22,[4] and Mathius Johnson as Assistant Coach on February 28.[5]

On June 3, 2017, Oakland County FC hosted the Muskegon Risers. At the match, a club record attendance of 707 was recorded.

In March 2018, OCFC ownership announced the move to Clawson, MI as the new home for the club. On March 1, 2018, the Oakland County FC Supporters’ Trust was established. With the trust, fans can purchase a membership within the trust which grants them an ownership stake of the club.

On March 23, 2018, Nicolino Morana stepped down as head coach of the club to become Technical Director. In turn, Darryl Evans (Head Coach) and Derek Peters (Assistant Coach) were announced as the team’s coaching staff for the 2018 season.

On November 5, 2019, OCFC was officially announced as a member of USL League Two.

On December 23, 2019, Vinnie Vasilevski was named head coach in replacement of Darryl Evans.

May 9, 2021 marked the inaugural USL League Two match for the club, notching a 3-0 victory over Fort Wayne FC.
