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 20 years ago in April 1999.

Currently . . . well, what can you say? The COVID-19 Pandemic has shut us down, but that's history. See below for Fall '20 details!




FALL '20

WE'RE BACK. Registration for the Fall '20 season is open. Sunday, September 20 is what we're shooting for, all details are contained in the CVSA Fall '20 Operational Guide..




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 perserverance 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.
