Founded in 2009, The Vacaville Elite consists of local players with an advance level of talent and familiarity of the game. Our goal is to offer players from the ages 10+ a place to play where their skills will be elevated to the next level. We are a complete volunteer based organization and rely on the knowledge and experience of our veteran players. We Travel all over California as well as out of state, competing against the top talent from around the world.
The Elite would go on to place 1st back to back in the Nor-Cal Premier Men's Open League. 1st place in 2012, as well as 1st place in 2013 College Summer League Capitol Bracket which would qualify the V.U.E. for the U-23 CA State Cup. The top two teams from Southern California, the Chivas USA MLS(LA) team, and the Corinthians(LA) would be taking on Northern CA's Vacaville Elite (Vacaville) and DV8 (Redwood City). Vacaville is a small City with a rough estimate of a 100,00 people. We are used to being the underdog in these situations, and have actually turned it into our motto. "Small Town Team, Big Time Dream". The V.U.E. would finish 3rd overall in the tournament but had already accomplished a lifelong goal that most clubs, players and coaches would only dream of.
In the 2014 Nor-Cal Men's APL fall season the team finished 3rd overall, only under top teams in the Nation with the likes of Sonoma Sol (NPSL), and the DV8 (Redwood City) thus qualifying the Vacaville Elite for the Lamar Hunt Tournament (U.S Open Cup) the biggest professional soccer tournament in the nation. All 32 MLS teams, majority of USL teams, and all semi-pro teams that qualify. The Elite would lose their first round game to a controversial penalty call in the final minutes of stoppage time. Still again, the Vacaville Elite had achieved something that most critics would say is impossible.
In 2015 the Vacaville Elite would take a year off from Nor-Cal league play but compete in a few friendly matches against, Chico State University and a couple other matches in the Bay Area of CA.
Vacaville Elite during the summer of 2016, again would compete in Nor-Cal's College Summer League (C.S.L) Placing them in the toughest bracket against powerhouse clubs like Sacramento United, Elk Grove Blues, and the summer Nor-Cal state champions Davis legacy.
Fall 2018, the Vacaville Elite competed in the the UPSL Wild West Conference northern bracket where they competed against: Napa Sporting, Western Nevada Coyotes, Oakland Stompers, JASA, Redding Royals and more. This is very exciting for the Elite team because they are the first Pro-Development team representing Solano County on a national level! Every game will be televised being seen all around the world. The UPSL is the fastest growing Pro-Development league in the country featuring over 230 teams in 32 different States. With acceptance into the UPSL, Vacaville Elite will get a bid into the Open/Lamar Hunt Cup for 2019.
