In 2017 Oakland Yard FC formed an alliance with Michigan Impact and has agreed to take on the Michigan Impact name and manage its men's team. The players and philosophy will remain intact. We are excited to take this partnership forward and about the opportunities ahead.
Our club was originally founded in 2008 by a group of friends who met at Oakland Yard Athletics. After a few discussions and finding players the first team was put together and entered into the Michigan Premier Soccer League (MPSL). In its first year the team reached the final of the Gerhard Mengel State Cup and was moved into the first division of the MPSL, where we've remained since 2009.
The club operates through a board of directors & managers including: Brian Conway, Dave Ristch, Mike Ristich, and Chris Valmassoi.
