MAJOR SPOKANE MERGER: Shadow and SSC to merge

 The Spokane Shadow Youth Soccer Club and Spokane Soccer Club (SSC) Elite Youth Soccer Club announced Friday their intention to merge into a new club known as Spokane Soccer Club Shadow. Both Shadow Technical Director Sean Bushey and SSC Elite Director of Coaching Abbas Faridnia will remain in similar positions within the new club.

“Our Spokane soccer players deserve to compete against the very best our state, region and, eventually, our nation has to offer,” said Shadow Technical Director Sean Bushéy in an announcement released by both clubs. “We cannot do that if we do not find ways to work together. Our clubs have found a way!” 

"While others have chosen to blaze a path for a few coaches, we have chosen to bring two clubs together because we know it is best for players at all levels, coaches and the community as a whole." added SSC Elite Director of Coaching Abbas Faridnia. "Our competition lies at a higher level.  Our players deserve this chance to represent Spokane and the outlying cities from which they reside, including north Idaho, Pullman and Moses Lake.”
