"We are excited about the upcoming year and the release of the schedule" said newest Virginia Beach City FC head coach Samuel Barnett. "After a year hiatus, we hope that this club can bring back some sense of normalcy on and off the pitch."
Coach Jimmy adds to his Virginia Beach City FC legacy, joining the first-team coaching staff. "We look forward to starting with the newest addition to the Mid-Atlantic, Philadelphia Lonestar. If we can come away with three points in our first league match since 2019 against a solid squad, it will be a great start and could provide us a lot of momentum," McCabe said. "If we can start well, we give ourselves a great chance in the remainder of the season to win the league."
The 2021 season is Virginia Beach City FC's sixth season, while conference opponents FC Baltimore and Northern Virginia United are entering their third seasons. Philadelphia Lonestar joins the Mid-Atlantic Conference as the newest and the furthest traveling team.
