The Club


Matt Driver, owner of the Atlantic Soccer Factory and current Technical Director of the NPSL, believed it was the perfect time to provide the highest level of soccer to the South Jersey area. Driver has long been hugely influential in developing Youth Soccer in the area that he now calls home. Matt wanted to create a platform for the most exciting local players and talented young coaches to showcase their talents. With all this in mind, the AC Crusaders were born!

Matt Driver had the perfect man in mind to help create his vision and soon appointed Mike Nicol as the teams’ General Manager. The next task was to select a Technical and playing staff that will be competitive and strive for success.

The Crusaders will compete in the NPSL, an independent nation-wide league whose main focus is on the development of highly competitive professional and amateur men’s soccer teams. The NPSL makes every effort to bring quality soccer to all levels of the community and to promote the stature of male athletes as role models for our youth.

The Crusaders will play their competitive matches out of Egg Harbor Township in a fantastic stadium. AC Crusaders games will be fun for the whole family, with game-day activities and professional level competition by the region’s finest soccer players.
