2022: Next season and Beyond

It has been no secret that Kirkland FC has desired to play their games at Lake Washington High School since the club's formation in 2017. "We feel that we have been doing a disservice to the people of Kirkland by playing our games outside of the city. We have let small roadblocks or obstacles interfere with putting our very best foot forward for our community. If COVID and 2021 have taught us anything, it is that we will not let those obstacles get in the way of what we are trying to achieve", Siedenburg states firmly in an interview with Club Media Director Agazi Birkner. "One way or another, we will be playing in Kirkland in 2022 and beyond". 

This exciting news comes off the back of equally exciting news from the league: the Western Washington Premier League announced in August that it would be rebranding as the Cascadia Premier League for the 2022 season and beyond. You can read the full article on Cascadia's Website. Part of the rebrand was to align with the National Independent Soccer Association, or NISA.

Cascadia's goal is to create pathways for players and clubs to reach the next level. By partnering with NISA, clubs, and players now have a major incentive to play for Kirkland FC as NISA's pro teams will look directly at affiliate leagues like Cascadia to fill out their rosters. 

Full Debut of Kirkland FC's Women's Team

To add to the already exciting news, Kirkland FC will be debuting in the inaugural Women's league for Cascadia. This comes off the back of a strong push by women players in the Kirkland area to find a higher level of competition. "Through our connections with Northwest University, we have been asked every year if we were going to start a women's side. In 2021, we got a group of current and former alumni together and played a series of friendlies against clubs similar to us. We had a great turnout, and we are excited to fully launch this side of our program which was long overdue", said co-owner Elijah Gordon. 

The women's league will debut in April of 2022 and run through the end of July.
