Joe Travez, Virginia Cavalry FC’s Principal Owner, noted, “With a number of variables regarding our stadium and having exhausted numerous alternative Northern Virginia venues, it is best for the team and the League to wait one more year to begin play. This was a difficult decision, but we owe it to our fans and our club’s future to start in as strong a position possible. You only have one time to make a first impression.”

NASL Commissioner Bill Peterson said: “The Board of Governors was fully apprised of the issues regarding the team’s stadium development, recognized the significant efforts Cavalry ownership expended in seeking alternatives and is fully supportive of the decision to delay the team’s launch for one season as being in the fans’ best interest.”

Additionally, Cavalry FC announce that Mark Simpson has been promoted to General Manager of the expansion club and will guide the team onto the pitch.

“I’ve personally witnessed the amazing growth of soccer locally here and I can’t wait to add the professional level to this area,” Mark Simpson said. “We have worked long and hard to create the mission and vision of Cavalry FC and we are fully committed to putting a product on the field we can all be proud of and our fans can fully support. This extra year will allow us to aggressively scout and prepare properly to join Oklahoma City and Jacksonville in the NASL in 2015.”
