The 6th Annual Steel City Combine

The 6th Annual Steel City College Combine was held on Sunday November 6, 2016 at Cupples Stadium in the South Side of Pittsburgh and it was perfect fall day for soccer and a great day for the college-bound soccer players to play in front of local college coaches.

In an effort to give back to their city league partners, Pittsburgh Football Club, has been helping male and female city league soccer players make connections that enabled them to play at the next level. Since its inception six years ago this event has introduced dozens of high school players to college coaches giving them opportunities they may not otherwise have had. This event has grown every year and this year over two dozen college coaches were in attendance. Local colleges as close as Pitt, Chatham and LaRoche and as far away as Penn State Behernd and Allegheny have been regular attendees.

The format for the event is to play two games one after another, one for the boys and one for the girls, with uncommitted PFC players filling in to round out the teams. PFC coaching staff uses its relationships with the coaches and invites them to watch on a Sunday when most teams have the day off. Not only have the city league players benefited but our own PFC players have received dozens of college offers from the combine. This has been outstanding event for all parties and Pittsburgh Football Club plans to continue this tradition for years to come.
