The U.S. fan is among the most passionate in the world. They have had to work harder to be fans, as their love for the game isn't as easily facilitated by the mainstream as it is in other countries around the world. With that being said, it's that same passion alive and strong today in millions of Americans, that will someday be credited with making soccer mainstream in the future.

Elite Design Corporation makes push to be a major catalyst in the introduction of corporate revenue into the United States soccer system with launch of USSoccerProject.com. The comprehensive corporate plan depends on identifying, unifying, empowering, and mobilizing the U.S. fan base for the collective good of U.S. soccer. It encompasses initiatives aimed at accelerating the development of soccer by creating a conduit for new resources to funnel into various areas of the current system, while also creating entirely new opportunities, including eventually purchasing a European team to provide an international vehicle for the steady development of U.S. players.
Elite Design Corporation is betting on the American soccer fan, making it its mission to essentially prove the general consensus that the United States ambivalence towards the world's game is nothing more than a long overstated misconception. Soccer remains the country's most played youth sport with over 18 million registered players, and the founder of EDC, Frank Bagnato, believes the fervor for U.S. soccer goes beyond the numbers saying, "The U.S. fan is among the most passionate in the world. They have had to work harder to be fans, as their love for the game isn't as easily facilitated by the mainstream as it is in other countries around the world. With that being said, it's that same passion alive and strong today in millions of Americans, that will someday be credited with making soccer mainstream in the future." USSoccerProject.com is a call to all U.S. fans to join the movement on a unified front, empowering individuals to contribute in a social network dedicated to soccer in America, while pooling the power of the masses to draw corporate and private capital into the sport. It will build on the momentum of recent progress and accelerate it to a level attainable only through the insertion of capitalistic endeavors.
EDC will eventually purchase a European soccer team to enhance player development and bridge the gap between the U.S. youth system and the structure of youth soccer around the world. The team will act as a vehicle to expose the elite youth player in the United States to the same opportunities readily available around the world. Membership is free.
Once the team is purchased, comprehensive U.S. youth development and scouting will be ongoing as players will be identified and given the opportunity to make the jump to the European team.
While some have deemed the multi-faceted plan ambitious, if not outright complicated, EDC's president insists, "The U.S. fan base is large, energized, and passionate. We are simply providing a place for everyone else to take notice," adding, "I've heard people say it will take great success by the United States national team on an international stage, which will then lead to the rising up of the U.S. fan. We simply contend the reverse is true."
