Chestnut Hill Sports Club and New England Futbol Club Announce Strategic Partnership

Chestnut Hill, MA (August 6, 2019)– As part of its ongoing effort to provide the highest quality soccer programs to communities in Boston, Brookline, and Newton, Chestnut Hill Sports Club (CHSC) has announced a partnership with the New England Futbol Club (NEFC).

Starting in the 2019-20 club season, CHSC Premier Teams will compete as NEFC - Chestnut Hill in the New England Premiership (NEP) and in other regional tournaments. As part of this partnership with NEFC, teams ranging from U15-U19 will have additional college recruitment resources and college showcase opportunities for players looking to play beyond high school. NEFC - Chestnut Hill will continue to base all its activities in the Chestnut Hill area and nearby communities. 

“CHSC is excited to partner with an organization as highly respected as NEFC. I have the greatest appreciation for the club’s developmental philosophy and the experience and professionalism of their leadership,” said Robert Sprague, CHSC Club Director. “This partnership is a win for youth players in our community. NEFC - Chestnut Hill will bring together the benefits of a smaller, community club with the resources and prestige of a larger, regional club.” 

“NEFC is thrilled to have Rob and the Chestnut Hill Sports Club join the NEFC family. Rob brings a wealth of knowledge related to developing and running a successful soccer organization. It has become clear that Chestnut Hill Sports Club and NEFC’s goals and mission were aligned. The geographic expansion into Brookline and Newton with a quality club such as Chestnut Hill is strategically important to us. NEFC will be able to provide the player pathway for Chestnut Hill Sports Club elite players in an elite environment,” stated Brian Mazar, President, NEFC.
