To our surrounding communities!
With the current events surrounding COVID-19 and the coming vaccines, Tulip City United now sets its eyes on our inaugural season in 2022. Our leadership has been working hard behind the scenes to be sure we are ready for the upcoming season. Our initiatives are going to take everyone in our community and we greatly appreciate the support we have been given by our community partners, business partners, and sponsors.
As we know COVID-19 has had a big impact on our lives, the local businesses, and sports in general. When we look at the upcoming season, we want to be sure that we support local guidelines, keep our athletes and spectators safe, as well as create a safe & fun environment. However, in order to get to our goal of our first game, we need help.
Tulip City United is seeking soccer and community driven individuals to be a part of our club leadership. We are seeking individuals that have a passion for our surrounding communities, creating a diverse community, fostering relationships with fans, and creating a game day environment for everyone. Our leadership team is eager to find those in our community who want to bring this soccer club to the next level and be a part of our inaugural season.
Below are areas we are seeking support in:
- Community Partner Liaison
- Business Sponsorship Liaison
- Game day and Event Liaison
We understand this is a commitment, so we ask that you carefully consider before reaching out with an area you see yourself helping out in. Again, we appreciate our community support and look forward to our inaugural season in 2022!

In light of the spread of COVID-9 and because we love the community we seek to serve, we want to make sure that we take every measure to protect our fans, members, partners, sponsors and team members. We also want to be good stewards of the funds entrusted to us by sponsors, partners and members. We feel that we will lose that investment if we push forward just for the sake of the game. We did not form our nonprofit organization just to build a soccer team, but to bring ALL the people of Holland together, face-to-face, enjoying each other’s company over something in common. In light of all of these reasons, Tulip City United SC has decided to postpone our first season to 2021. By waiting, we feel our first season will be more successful, starting at a time when we as a community will want to be out, together, and making human connections like never before. We remain committed to support our community partners, sponsors, business partners and members through this difficult time.
