Alabama FC is Taking it to Another Level!


Capital City Streaks, BUSA and Fusion FC Join Forces Under the Alabama FC Banner to Raise the Level of Soccer in Alabama!


BUSA, Capital City Streaks, and Fusion of East Alabama, announce plans to form a deeper relationship to best serve all players in Alabama. Starting in May of 2021, and continuing on-going integration for the next 12 months, the three clubs will be working collectively to advance the soccer landscape in Alabama. All teams in each respective club will be re-branded under the Alabama FC name and plan to all wear the same uniforms by the Fall of 2022. All club teams will synonymously be registered in one central registration house to allow for more player development opportunities and thus more chances to best serve players in different parts of Alabama. We plan to add several more clubs in the next year under the Alabama FC banner, and look forward to continuing to empower soccer players in Alabama for the next generation by working together for a common goal.

YMCA of Greater Montgomery Vice President and Capital City Streaks Director, Manny Sanchez was quoted, “We are thrilled to announce that we are bringing the “proven pathway” to the next level to Montgomery. Alabama FC South will be replacing the Capital City Streaks Club moving forward. We are definitely taking it to another level becoming part of the Alabama FC Family. This strategic partnership will allow our players to have unique opportunities to continue to develop and play at the most competitive levels in our country. We share many common values and philosophies that without a doubt will help us better serve our players and families. We can continue not only to develop our players by creating different training and competitive environments, but also by growing the game in Alabama. This is definitely an exciting day for the River Region, our club, players and coaches”.


BUSA Executive Director Andrew Brower was quoted,” It is exciting to see deeper roots being planted within Alabama FC, with the sole intent being able to serve the players in these three clubs more effectively. The demands of playing in the best leagues in the country require and demand deeper player pools and we are excited to be able to work with the Fusion and Streaks, to continue to raise the standard of excellence by sharing resources and being collective working together. We have long enjoyed our relationships with the Fusion and Streaks and excited to see us take it to another level starting with this upcoming tryout cycle.”


Fusion FC Director of Coaching Jeremiah Massa, “Fusion FC is proud to be a part of a growing program to help give more opportunities, and a developmental pathway for the players and coaches in East Alabama to achieve their highest potential. This will open doors for those who before would not have the opportunity to play at the highest levels of soccer with the ECNL and ECRL. We are excited about the opportunity to continue to grow and develop the players coaches and parents at a elite level in the beautiful game.”

New Rule Changes for this year, Be In The Know


The rule-makers have decided upon a number of changes to the Laws of the Game – but what
are they?

The changes came into effect on June 1, 2019.

It’s not the first time that the rules of the beautiful game have been tweaked and it probably
won’t be the last as administrators continue to figure out the best way forward in a world of
changing technology.

Let’s look at the RULES that affect our youth game and our Capital City Streaks this up and
coming season.
From next season on, we’re going to see an interesting change to the way free kicks are taken.
The IFAB has approved a rule change which prohibits attacking players – ie those from the
team on attacking from the free kick – from being in the wall.
Specifically, when there is a wall of three or more players attackers are not allowed
within one yard of it.
Any attacking player found to be less than one yard from the wall when a free kick is taken will
be penalized and the other team will be rewarded with an indirect free kick.
Changes to the nature of goal kicks have altered the dynamic of restarting the game.
Previously, the ball was deemed ‘dead’ until it left the penalty area, but a new change means
that the ball is in play as soon as it is touched and it can be played inside the 18-yard box.
Early confusion around this rule led the IFAB to clarify that opposition players are still not
allowed in the box until the ball is played.
From 2019-20 on, the team that wins the coin toss has a choice of picking which half to attack
or to take first kick-off.
The thinking behind this rule is that many players will opt to take kick-off since a goal can be
scored directly from one.
In order to clamp down on difficult behavior from coaches who don’t see eye to eye with the
referee or their opposite number, officials will be able to show them yellow or red cards, in the
same way, they do with players.
If in the event of a touchline melee, for example, the offending individual cannot be identified
for punishment, the senior coach who is in the technical area will be the default recipient.
The IFAB has attempted to provide more clarity on the handball offense for occasions when the
offense is deemed to be ‘non-deliberate’.
Essentially, the changes will mean that there will be no goal in cases where the ball
accidentally strikes a player’s hand before crossing over the line.
Similarly, if a player has accidentally handled the ball and created an advantage or
subsequently scores, they will be penalized with a free-kick.
The issue of penalty kicks has cropped up a few times in recent years and the trend has been
towards reducing the freedom of the goalkeeper.
That hasn’t changed with the latest update to the rules, which dictate that the shotstopper must not be moving or touching the goalposts.
The new rule changes also say that the goalkeeper must have at least part of one foot on or in
line with the goal-line.
“Allowing the goalkeeper to have only one foot touching the goal line (or, if jumping, in line
with the goal line) when the penalty kick is taken is a more practical approach as it is easier to
identify if both feet are not on the line,” goes the IFAB’s explanation.
“As the kicker can ‘stutter’ in the run, it is reasonable that the goalkeeper can take one step in
anticipation of the kick.”
As well as those points, the penalty taker will now be permitted to receive a quick treatment if
necessary before taking the kick.
The dropped ball is no more. Well, at least not as we know it.
If play is stopped inside the penalty area the ball will simply be dropped for the goalkeeper.
If it is stopped outside the penalty area the ball will be dropped for a player from the team that
last touched the ball. In all cases, players will have to be at least four and a half yards away.
Here’s the IFAB’s explanation: “The current dropped ball procedure often leads to a
‘manufactured’ restart which is ‘exploited’ unfairly (e.g. kicking the ball out for a throw-in deep
in the opponents’ half) or an aggressive confrontation.
“Returning the ball to the team that last played it restores what was ‘lost’ when play was
stopped, except in the penalty area where it is simpler to return the ball to the goalkeeper.
“To prevent that team gaining an unfair advantage, all players of both teams, except the player
receiving the ball, must be at least 4m (4.5 yds) away.”
Previously if the Ball hit the referee and changed possession it was played on as normal. Now if
the ball hits an official (Ref) and a change of possession happens, it will now be a noncontested drop ball for the team who lost possession.
We hope this helps you for the up and coming
