KNOW YOUR OPPONENT: UNION EAU CLAIRE FC
WHO ARE THEY?
Union Eau Claire FC were formed in 2021 and joined the Wisconsin Primary Amateur Soccer League (WPASL) for their inaugural season of play in 2022. The club was formed by former Bateaux FC players Sadith Osseni, Larry Mboga, Hebert Engop and Chacha Nacius, with hopes to promote soccer in the Eau Claire area while bringing people of different backgrounds together to platform their talents. The name Union Eau Claire stems from symbolism of the confluence of the Chippewa and Eau Claire rivers where the city of Eau Claire sits, and the club's hope to bring people of various cultures together. The term "Union" is French and means togetherness, a fitting name for a club whose home city of Eau Claire means "Clear Water" in French.
