The Central Virginia Soccer Association
40 Years of the Best Adult Soccer in the Richmond Area


Welcome to the website of the Central Virginia Soccer Association. This site is updated perpetually and will contain current schedules, standings, and other happenings in the league.

The Central Virginia Soccer Association (CVSA) is a non-profit, adult soccer league headquartered in Richmond, Virginia. Games are played at various sites in the city of Richmond, as well as Hanover, Henrico & Chesterfield Counties. The league is currently in its 46th year of operation, having started play in the Fall of 1975, and is the oldest and most competitive in the Richmond Metropolitan Area. The CVSA is sanctioned by the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) and the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) through its membership in the Metro D. C. - Virginia Soccer Association (MDCVSA), with whom it participates in U. S. Open Cup, USASA National Cup and MDCVSA State & Challenge Cup tournaments. The CVSA hosted the MDCVSA State Championships at the Bryan Park Soccer Complex from 2000-2005, as well as the latest 2019 edition in December, and continues to be an integral part of the maintenance and development of that facility, having provided over half of the funds to build the facility, which opened 22 years ago in April 1999.

Currently . . . Enjoy the break! We'll see you in February!




FALL '21


11-A-SIDE RETURNS! 12 months after the completion of the 2019-'20 CVSA Cup & Copa Bruce, 11-a-side play returned to the CVSA. Since the aborted Spring '20 season closed in March 2020, the CVSA had been 7-a-side to accomodate the virus. All of that is past us, and the Fall '21 season came back strong, with 92 teams spread across eight open divisions, two coed divisions, and the Veterans Division.

Sporting 804 - Fall '21 Premier Division Champions


The more things change, the more they stay the same. Sporting 804,
undefeated and untied, took their sixth consecutive Fall Premier Division title. Like the weather, everyone complains, but nobody ever does anything about it.

Richmond City FC, on the prowl for their first CVSA major title, laid waste to the First Division with a another undfeated & untied season, and a 34:2 goal differential. Richmond FC returned from a sabbatical in the Southside during virustime, and subdued Lightning FC in a winner-take-all championship match on the last day of the regular season.

In the Third Division, matters are still being worked out. The presumed divisional champions were found to have used unregistered members of the VCU Men's Soccer team, using fake ID's at gametime, and forfeited their final regular season game, as well as their Round of 16 CVSA Cup match. Stay tuned for more drama . . .

The Fourth Division went to the Legend of Ivory Stripes FC, and the Fifth Division was won by Top of the Tabol FC. Wiseguys FC took the Sixth Division, and Home FC Home snagged the Seventh Division, both teams finishing with perfect 8-0-0 records.

In the Coed Division, the Murtaughs continued their summer dominance of the division, finishing 10-0-0, with a 75:1 goal differential, leaving this division on life support from a competitive standpoint. Balls 'N Dolls took the Coed Recreational Division by a game in a rare competitive session for the Coeds.

In the Veterans Division, the Screaming Eagles Masters returned the top of the division, reclaiming the title they lost in the spring from Strongs Old School.

UNITED PREMIER SOCCER LEAGUE / CVSA / PREP4PRO

                        


A NEW VENTURE & OPPORTUNITY. The CVSA is partnering with Prep4Pro, entering a CVSA squad into the United Premier Soccer League for the Fall '21 season. The CVSA Prep4Pro team will be playing in the UPSL Premier, Northeast Conference, Beltway South Division, with five other teams. A ten-game home-&-home round robin will be contested this fall. More details are available here, as well as with a link in the sidebar.





SUMMER '21


A RETURN TO NORMAL. The CVSA closed out its first summer campaign since 2019 on August 6 at Longdale with a slate smaller than normal, but nonetheless ready to get back to the game. 61 teams across eight divisions, competing in the traditional seven-a-side format, as many eyes were looking toward the fall.

Sporting 804 MW - Summer '21 Premier Division Champions


The 804 Dynasty rolls onward,
as Sporting 804 MW won the outfit's tenth CVSA Major Title out of the last 17 awarded. An 11-0-1 record left little doubt as to who runs the place.

Sporting 804 TT silenced any doubters to the club's absolute rule by taking First Division, besting previously undefeated Richmond City FC in a shootout after a scoreless championship final. Richmond Celtic FC won the Second Division, showing that someone besides 804 can win a championship in this league, and finished with an impressive 11-0-1 record. Cardinal FC - Grove matched Celtic's 11-0-1 record to take Third Division with a 4:2 win over RCFC Clasico in the final.

Underdog Fat Dragon FC took the Fourth Division the hard way. Coming is as the #5 seed, they defeated the #4, #1, and #2 seeds to take the final in a penalty shootout againt Bean FC. Rounding out the open divisions, the Titans rolled to a 10-0-2 record to take the Fifth Division, finishing off championship debutantes Gooners Guild.

The Veterans Division saw the Renegades breeze to another summer crown, with little resistance from the remainder of the field.

In the Coed Division, the Master Paters, continued their summer dominance of the division, finishing 10-0-0.

SPRING '21


MAYBE THE END OF COVID MANIA?!? The CVSA closed out the Spring '21 season on May 27 at Longdale with the crowning of a new Veterans Division Champion. 75 teams across ten divisions, competing in a seven-a-side format, in the league's last season of virus restrictions.

Sporting 804 Blue - Spring '21 Premier Division Champions


In the Premier Division defending champions Sporting 804 decided to spice things up and split themselves in half, with Sporting 804 Blue comfortably taking the title with a 9-0-1 record.

Brambly Park FC ran the table to take the First Division. LOKO took the Second Division, finishing four points clear of the field, as this once proflific club showed that they're still a factor. Mamma Zû netted a last-minute goal to win the Third Division in the last game of the season.

West Creek FC took the Fourth Division with a perfect record. Rounding out the open divisions, PLPFC & PLPFC 2 took the Fifth & Sixth Divisions, respectively, giving the folks at Penny Lane Pub something to cheer about.

The Veterans Division saw a new face at the top, with the Spiders dethroning the Screaming Eagles Masters with a 5:2 victory on the last night of the spring season.

In the Coed Competitive Division, the perennial two-team struggle for supremacy was again won by The Murtaughs, with Future FC taking the Coed Recreational Division

2020-'21 CVSA CUP & COPA BRUCE

We just couldn't pull it off . . .

While the 2019-'20 CVSA Cup and Copa Bruce were able to be completed through the torrent of coronavirus, the 2020-'21 edition could not do the same. With the Fall '20 & Spring '21 seasons being conducted as 7-a-side competitions, there was no need for another 7-a-side tournament, which would only mimic what we have been doing for years in our summer competitions. Thus, the decision is made to cancel the 2020-'21 CVSA Cup and Copa Bruce, and pick up the pieces for the 2021-'22 session come September.

Look for the first draw in September 2021 at Kitchen 64. We can't wait

The CVSA Cup page is updated to reflect the cancellation.





FALL '20

THE FALL '20 RESURRECTION IS COMPLETE! After the virus pandemic shut down the Spring '20 & Summer '20 campaigns, the CVSA conducted its Fall '20 season as a 7-a-side competition, and with heavy safety restrictions. Although the number of teams was reduced, we got back to playing soccer, and everyone emerged alive.

Sporting 804 - Fall '20 Premier Division Champions


The Premier Division featured the CVSA's first (and, hopefully, only) Covid Bowl, as undefeated and untied Sporting 804 took on undefeated and untied Screaming Eagles FC in the ultimate game of the campaign. It wasn't close in the end as Sporting scored two touchdowns to take a 13:2 rout and the Fall '20 Premier Division, their seventh of the last 11 regular season Premier titles.

Prestige Estes Worldwide FC matched Sporting 804's perfect record to take the First Division. Tots United continued the trend by posting a 9-0-0 record to sweep Second Division, finishing five points clear of the field. NCF Villalobos FC earned their first division title, taking the Third Division by a point on the last day.

The Fan Rats won the Fourth Division a week early, the 34th CVSA divisional title for the Fan Rats Soccer Club as these ageless wonders travel on. Rounding out the open divisions, Quaranteam won the Fifth Division by a single point on the last day of competition.

The Veterans Division saw a familiar face at the top, with Screaming Eagles Masters scoring two goals in the last ten minutes against the Spiders, dislodging them from first place to grab the trophy at the last minute.

In the Coed Competitive Division, the perennial two-team struggle for supremacy was won by The Murtaughs, who ran away with the division in the absence of their nemesis Richmond City FC Coed.

  • Premier: Sporting 804
  • First: Prestige Estes Worldwide FC

2019-'20 CVSA CUP & COPA BRUCE

PARTIZAN MARCHES UP THE LADDER!



Partizan Richmond FC won their fifth CVSA Cup Championship with a 3:1 victory over The Strongers at Longdale, with two goals in the last 10 minutes to pull away. Both teams showed well, as Partizan moved ahead of Deutscher Sportclub (four titles), only trailing Lions FC (seven titles). On the undercard, The Murtaughs blew out the Sunday Scaries 7:0 in a game that was close only for the first 15 minutes.

The 2019-'20 cup season was notable for a five-month interruption due to the virus, which stopped play in mid-March. After almost having the continuation of the competition shot down by the CVSA Board, play resumed in August with the Copa Bruce Quarterfinals, and culminated with the August 30 championship games. The tournament was a tribute to the perseverance of the 12 teams who waited out the five-month hiatus, and the coalition of the willing who saw the tournament through to its completion.

The CVSA Cup page is updated with results.




SPRING '20

It started promising . . . but even the best laid plans can be foiled.

The CVSA's Spring '20 season had 76 teams over eight open divisions, an 8-team Veterans Division, and 17 teams over two Coed Divisions. On Thursday, March 12 matters came to a crashing halt as the COVID-19 Pandemic took over, and shortly thereafter the season was canceled.

The Spring '20 season will be memorable, but not for the right reasons. We'll carry on, and pick up the pieces.




LONGDALE

The CVSA is now the owner of the Longdale Recreation Association property, located at 10425 Greenwood Road in Glen Allen.

For the Spring ‘20 season, we will have a 70y x 100y field for open division play, and a 55y x 80y for the Veterans Division 7-a-side play.

There is a building on the premises which will provide all of us many opportunities for volunteer work as we look to develop and improve the complex. More details are forthcoming, as this will be an agenda item at this weekend’s Spring ‘20 Organizational Meeting.





CVSA ARCHIVES

Have you ever wondered . . . why the Fall '15 Fifth Division title was vacated? Who won the inaugural Third Division title? That we had a women's division? As we approach the 50th anniversary of the CVSA, an effort has been put into organizing the CVSA Archives into a more compact format, highlighting the divisional champions, cup champions, state & national cup performances, as well as our Honorary Lifetime Members (the closest thing we have to a Hall of Fame). We're currently working from a 17-page .pdf document, which can be found here and in the sidebar. There will be more to come as we mine the memories of our older members, and collect photographs, old stories, and anecdotes from the last 45 years.




2019 MDCVSA STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS

The 2019 MDCVSA STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS were held at the Bryan Park Soccer Complex on the weekend of December 7-8, 2019. The CVSA swept both competitions, with LOKO FC taking the MDCVSA State Cup, and the Renegades winning the MDCVSA Veterans Cup.

A recap of the competiton can be found here: 2019 MDCVSA State Championships Recap.

FALL '19

THE FALL '19 SEASON IS COMPLETE Another successful season is in the books, as we had the usual mixture of old faces and upstarts taking home hardware for the long winter's nap until Spring '20 gets started in March.

Defending CVSA Cup Champions Sporting 804 led the parade with their seventh major CVSA title, finishing four points clear of Screaming Eagles FC to take the Premier Division.The Strongers took the First Division, claiming their sixth trophy since debuting in the Spring '17 season; not expecting any pleas from this group to stay down in the First. Finishing with a clean slate at 8-0-0, Short Pump FC swept the Second Division, finishing six points clear of the field; unencumbered by the demands of cup competition, they look forward to the First Division come spring.

Both the Third & Fourth Divisions went to the Ivory Stripes club, with FC Ivory Stripes taking the former, Young Boys of Ivory Stripes taking the latter. These titles marked the fourth and fifth trophies for this bunch.

Newcomers District 5 FC took the Fifth Division, besting Tots United on a tiebreaker, and Sunday Scaries by one point in the standings; no word if they'll be changing their names to "District 4" for the trip to the Fourth Division in the spring. Sidewalk Café won the Sixth Division, the 33rd CVSA divisional title for the Fan Rats Soccer Club as these ageless wonders travel on. Rounding out the open divisions, Havoc FC won the Seventh Division for their first divisional title.

The growing Veterans Division saw a familiar face at the top, with Screaming Eagles Masters taking their third title in the past four seasons, sitting at the top of this six-team division.

In the Coed Competitive Division, the perennial two-team struggle for supremacy was won by Richmond City FC Coed, who bested the Murtaughs, who earlier knocked them out of the Copa Bruce. Rage FC took the Coed Recreational Division, and may be the next champion from that division to try and convince the CVSA Board why they shouldn't be promoted, and why the winless last place team from the Competitive Division shouldn't be relegated.
