The ownership group of  Tim Thomas, Rui Filipe Bento, David Robertson & Shawn Diedtrich wanted to come out and show the community that..the…..ok enough of that. You all came here for the hot gossip, and you all know that I went to the event to get the hot gossip.

First off we had Tim Thomas join us on our most recent podcast check it out here

The name of the team will be Phoenix City F.C. or PCFC which is pretty sick

The team colors will be Red and White

The ownership group consists of 4 men and here is a quick bio
Tim Thomas – Local Developer
Shawn Diedtrich – Lawyer
Rui Filipe Bento – Originally from Portugal, Soccer Club Director of local club Benefica  – Will be PCFC General Manager
David Robertson – Originally from Scotland Boys Director, Sereno Soccer Club – Will be Head Coach

Big ups to Tim Thomas who bought everyone beers.

I have something huge to point out. The head coach of Phoenix City F.C. has a Wikipedia page. If I learned anything at Arizona State, it’s that if you have a Wikipedia page you’re legit. David Robertson originally from Scotland played for Alberdeen F.C., Rangers and Leeds. He was also capped 3 times for the Scottish National Team.

Jose E. Garcia who is the man for AZ soccer coverage found this video of David playing….skip to 1:10
I also highly suggest you follow Jose on twitter here...and if your not reading his soccer blog, you should start….he broke the story of the USL Pro team and sat down with Tim Thomas. Read the interview here for a lot more information about the team and Tim

David is also the Boys Director at the Sereno Soccer Club. David will also remain with Sereno while he coaches PCFC (Phoenix City F.C.)
