Oceanway FC wants to see an open system of promotion and relegation from the elite level of MLS to the amateur level. Oceanway FC aspires to join the UPSL, which promotes promotion/relegation within its own league, and play in the US Open Cup against the MLS and USL clubs and go toe-to-toe showing that is how you grow a soccer player and community that matters.

It’s not about the dollar signs, it’s about how you can impact a life. Our community. Our home. Oceanway FC is calling for the system to change. To no longer stamp out those who have true talent, true heart, not just money. Oceanway FC wants to grow the game and become a community asset that deeply loves the city of Jacksonville.
