Michigan Stars FC Announces a Youth Soccer Affiliation

Published Jan 15, 2021

The vision of Michigan Stars FC owner George Juncaj is starting to take shape this week with the
addition of a men’s u23 development team, a women’s pro-am team, indoor/outdoor facilities, and
now the addition of a youth soccer club.

The Michigan Lightning (Rochester Soccer Club) and Michigan Revolution, with their combined
3,000 soccer players in all soccer programming, have partnered with the Michigan Stars. The two
clubs involved will rebrand their teams as Michigan Stars Lightning and Michigan Stars Revolution
with the two clubs combining their highest level players forming Michigan Stars Elite. The
partnership will begin Fall of 2021. Tryouts for the new Michigan Stars Elite will take place on June
12-13, 2021 at the Michigan Stars Sports Center (formerly Total Sports Park) in Washington
Township, Michigan. For more information about the soccer club and new partnership, visit

While speaking about the youth partnership, George Juncaj stated “We started meeting in June
with local soccer clubs and I am excited for the partnership that we have formed with the new
Michigan Stars Elite. It’s exciting for youth players and coaches to have direct access to the
professional players and staff and then having the ability to watch them compete during games. I
want to create an opportunity for a six year old to dream and have a goal of playing professional
soccer with the Michigan Stars.”

The Michigan Stars FC is a professional soccer team currently participating in NISA (National
Independent Soccer Association). The National Independent Soccer Association is a professional
men’s soccer league in the United States. The league is in the third tier of American soccer and
began play in 2019.

Michigan Stars Sports Center is an 80-acre soccer complex that contains 23 outdoor fields as well as
a 118,000 sq. ]. indoor facility containing one full size 11v11 field. Information about our new
soccer stadium will be coming soon.
