2019 Players

In 2018, Med City FC consisted of 28 players representing 11 different countries in Europe, South America, Africa and North America. In addition, 10 of our players were from the Rochester area and represented graduates from Rochester John Marshall High School, Rochester Mayo High School, Rochester Century High School, Lourdes High School, and Byron High School, as well as Farmington High School. Two of the players on the team play or played collegiately at St. Mary’s University of Minnesota in Winona.

As we switch gears to the 2019 season, we are excited to watch our continued growth in all areas of the team, and players will be added here as they are announced for our 2019 season.
