June 4th, Waltham, MA, 2019; Global Premier Soccer (GPS) and Vipers FC are proud to announce an extensive strategic partnership that will provide GPS with a greater presence on the South Coast and allow Vipers FC to expand its player development and player opportunities within Massachusetts and beyond.

Vipers FC, headquartered in Dartmouth, MA, has for almost 20 years provided youth players on the South Coast an opportunity to experience Premier level soccer and coaching in a convenient and family-oriented environment. The program's purpose is for youth to participate in an organized process of playing premier soccer at a regional, state and national level with a strong emphasis on technical and tactical skill development.

GPS, the official North American Partner of FC Bayern Munich, is one of the largest and most successful soccer organizations in North America, providing player development programming in 27 states and in Canada.  Its mission is to establish a unique player development model and to produce players who can compete at the highest level of world soccer.

"Vipers FC is excited for this partnership with GPS and the opportunities it will bring for our players and coaches. GPS has a long standing reputation of developing skilled soccer players and maintaining a quality coaching staff. We look forward to this partnership under the GPS Vipers FC brand and welcome the GPS family to the Dartmouth region." said Carlos Freitas, Director of Vipers FC

“This is an exciting partnership for GPS and we are looking forward to it. Vipers have for many years developed great players and teams in a great soccer loving part of the State. We are excited to welcome all the staff, players and parents to the GPS Family” says Matt Hardiman, GPS MA Premier Director.

For the season 2019/20 the club will rebrand to GPS Vipers FC.  The partnership will see GPS provide extensive technical, operations and marketing support to Vipers FC, as well as providing Vipers teams with increased competitive opportunities via access to league and tournament play.

The GPS National Team and FC Bayern ID program will now be available to Vipers FC players.  These program will provide the best players across the GPS locations an opportunity to compete for regional identification events and major domestic and international tournaments such as the Super Cup (Northern Ireland), Dana Cup (Denmark) and Surf Cup (San Diego) and participate in Residential training camps.
This partnership will commence immediately.  GPS Vipers will be hosting tryouts this month in Dartmouth.  Full details can be found by visiting http://vipersfcsoccer.com.  For more information on the partnership please contact Matt Hardiman at mhardiman@globalpremiersoccer.com.
