MB Mutiny making move to new league, home stadium

mbmutiny-goalieThe Myrtle Beach Mutiny is on the move.

Playing in their first season in the Premier Development League (PDL), the Mutiny also will have a new home pitch in North Myrtle Beach. Coast FA, which owns the U-23 soccer team, announced it will play seven home matches this summer at the North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex instead of its previous home at Ashley Booth Field in Myrtle Beach.

“The move to North Myrtle Beach is exciting for the team due to the state-of-the-art facilities and the sincere interest shown by the City of North Myrtle Beach to build a long-term relationship with the club,” Coast FA Executive Director Heyward Gulledge said. “We look forward to providing a high-level soccer experience for everyone along the Grand Strand.”

The Mutiny opens the 2017 season on Saturday, May 13, at the South Georgia Tormenta FC, and play their first four games on the road before opening in their news digs at the NMB Park & Sports Complex on Saturday, June 3 against Tobacco Road FC. Other home dates include June 15 (South Georgia Tormenta FC), June 18 (North Carolina FC), June 20 (Wilmington Hammerheads), June 23 (Carolina Dynamo), June 27 (Charlotte Eagles), July 5 (North Carolina FC). All game times are set for 7 p.m.

“The City of North Myrtle Beach is proud to be the new host of the Mutiny home soccer matches,” said North Myrtle Beach Superintendent of Recreation/Sports Tourism Matt Gibbons. “We are thankful for our continued partnership with Coast FA which made this opportunity possible. Hosting the Mutiny matches will give our residents, especially our youth soccer players, an opportunity to experience soccer at a higher level. We can’t think of a better home for Mutiny matches than North Myrtle Beach and the North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex.”

The PDL is a development league sponsored by United Soccer Leagues in the United States and Canada, forming part of the United States soccer league system. It is currently considered the top-level men’s amateur soccer competition in the United States. The PDL has 72 teams divided into four conferences (Eastern, Southern, Central, and Western) and comprising 10 divisions. The league season runs from May through July, with the playoffs decided in July.

The Mutiny is  comprised of primarily top collegiate soccer players from all over the world that have aspirations of pursuing a professional career after college. This year’s squad includes players from UCLA, Michigan State, Cincinnati, Connecticut, College of Charleston, Furman, Sacramento, Kentucky, Louisville, Creighton, USC Upstate and Winthrop. D-II national champion Wingate University, national powerhouse NAIA program Lindsey Wilson, JUCO programs, former CCU players and several Coast youth players round out the squad.

Kyle Russell is the Mutiny head coach and serves as the associate head coach for the Coastal Carolina men’s soccer Program. Ross Morgan, current Coast FA Director of Coaching, is assistant coach and is joined by newly appointed Coastal Carolina assistant coach Kyle Timm. Pat Piscitelli is sporting director for the Mutiny and handles the daily operations.
