Infiltrate. Create. Influence.
Washington, D.C.'s overarching culture is steeped in government and politics. Guerrillas are subversive revolutionaries. They fight powerful institutions and overthrow systems.
Guerrilla seeks a cultural revolution in the capital. We've infiltrated the city and its long ball, oversized pitch, mismatched t-shirts, rec leagues to inject it with a bit of real Football Culture.
Where there is crisis, there is a possibility of revolution - Socrates (the Brazilian one)
Because we are a football club. We don't play soccer. Soccer is pay to play. Soccer is orange slices and minivans. Soccer is the suburbs. Soccer is MLS, post-season playoffs, and athletes over artists.
Football has history, atmosphere, environment, and culture.
We are the misunderstood artists. The pitch is our canvas, our feet the paintbrushes.
I believe the target of anything in life should be to do it so well it becomes an art - Arsene Wenger
Més que un club?
Guerrilla FC is a creative community founded in Washington, D.C. in 2016. We're bringing a revolution to the city through the vessels of fashion, art, and football.
Guerrilla FC encourages a positive and creative atmosphere -- on and off the pitch. We play attacking, possession-focused football with an emphasis on creativity, guile, and positive reinforcement. Our subversion comes from backheel assists (like Guti), twirling nutmegs (Riquelme), and outlandish haircuts (Pogba!).
Good team football infused with individual expression. Nutmegs are not encouraged -- they are necessary.
Off the pitch, Guerrilla FC is bringing a football cultural revolution to the capital with international flavor from the shores of Africa, South America, Europe, and beyond. The revolution will not be televised. We are the revolution. We are Guerrilla.
