night the Dynamo dropped a tough match to Ocean City 2-1 giving up a goal
in the 86th minute. The Dynamo then turned around and beat Central Jersey

The Carolina Dynamo is one of the oldest and most storied clubs in US
soccer, having won 4 National Championships, multiple Conference
Championships, and 8 Division Titles. Founded in 1993, the Dynamo is
three years older than Major League Soccer. The Dynamo is a team of elite
college players with professional aspirations. They compete for the
Dynamo during the summer, and then return to colleges to finish their
eligibility. Many of our players are drafted by MLS clubs and can been
seen playing ABC & ESPN the following summer. Beginning with Major League
Soccer’s 1996 inaugural year, 49 Dynamo players have been drafted by MLS
teams — 32 since the Dynamo joined the Premier Development League in
2004.

The Carolina Dynamo also has a global reach. There are 44 Dynamo players
currently playing professional soccer in 13 different countries. Since
Dynamo’s inception, 17 players have represented 7 different countries in
International and World Cup play — 7 of these Dynamo alumni have played
for the United States.

As a soccer community, we are very fortunate to have some of the top
athletes in the nation play their college soccer here in North Carolina
and compete for the Dynamo. The Dynamo has, and will continue to attract
the best players in the country to play for us, hone their skills and
compete for another National Championship. Come support these players as
they strive to become the “Stars of Tomorrow”. The Dynamo is the best,
most affordable family entertainment in the entire Triad — World Class
Soccer at your backdoor.
