The Free Pizza Football Club is an American professional soccer team located in New York that was founded in Season 47. The club currently plays in the fifth division of the United States league system, and is managed by Crab Goblin. Pizza's first team plays it's fixtures at Frank's® RedHot Arena, a venue with seating for 29,650 spectators. Caldera's head coach is currently Seth Avery, an American who had a successful playing career as a defender in Argentina at Estúpido Flanders and for Serrinha in Portugal. The Freeps Academy, Free Pizza's youth organization was involved in the establishment of the Star Wars league system, and currently plays in Coruscant, the upper league. The academy plays home matches at the nearby Colby Park. In Season 52, Goblin opened F.P. Crabzönspor, an affiliated franchise based in Newcastle, New South Whales.

History

Syracuse, New York personality Abner Goblin began planning the team that would become Free Pizza shortly before the start of Season 47. He was reportedly disillusioned with the state of the Syracuse Salty Dogs, especially after his failed takeover bid of the local club. He began recruiting amateur and semi-pro players from the area, and hired Johnny Orr as head coach. During planning stages the organization was referred to as the Caldera Football Club, but Free Pizza was eventually chosen instead. When the holding company for Atlanta Hotspur declared bankruptcy midway through the season, Goblin made a successful bid to replace them in the VI.800 league.

With operations fully underway, relations between Orr and Goblin quickly deteriorated, and despite the team's victory in their first league match, Orr was promptly dismissed and replaced as head coach by Alejandro Doncel Luengo, who had previously coached Spanish teams Ratones C.F. and Merida UD. Under Doncel's leadership, Free Pizza completed two successful seasons finishing 1st in division VI, and achieving promotion to V.131 for Season 49. Notably, in his tenure Doncel brought in Polish defender Dorian Wilczura and the young Swiss keeper Magnus Müller-Hüwen.

26,000+-capacity Frank's® RedHot Arena upon completion in Season 51.

Upon promotion however, Goblin and Doncel no longer saw eye-to-eye on the future of the club, and assistant coach Raphael Hutchins was promoted to Doncel's position, who returned to Europe. The American Hutchins had a successful playing career in Europe, notably for the Swedish side Schtaan AIK, Troll Team in France, Bananenflanke Eutin in Germany, and Bancolese in Italy. Under Hutchins in Season 51, Free Pizza entered into a sponsorship deal with Frank's® RedHot cayenne pepper sauce, which included a shirt logo and stadium branding deal, and the new 26,000-plus-capacity Frank's® RedHot Arena opened a few weeks into the season. Hutchins also oversaw the addition to Freeps Academy youth players Ethan Petersen and Javier De La Cuesta to the first team roster, and the club's first million-dollar signing with Turkish winger Nasip Comert.

Amid continued mediocre league results, Hutchins was acrimoniously replaced halfway through Season 51 and replaced with Seth Avery. Avery played most of his career for the Argentine club Estúpido Flanders and for Serrinha in Portugal, before moving to Italy at Real Tizzi and then retiring to Free Pizza as an assistant coach to Hutchins in season 49. In Season 52, Goblin opened F.P. Crabzönspor, an affiliated franchise based in Newcastle, New South Whales.

From the manager

Coaching changes at Free Pizza

Posted 29 March 2013

This week's match was marked by the absence of Raphael Hutchins on the sidelines, after an apparently contentious falling out between club owner Crab Goblin and the 44 year-old coach. The two men had reportedly arranged a duel of sorts involving french baguette cudgels, but no one was injured as the authorities arrived and broke up the altercation before it started.

Hutchins has been replaced by former ginger defender Seth Avery. Avery played mostly for the Argentine club Estúpido Flanders and for Serrinha in Portugal, before finishing his career in Italy at Real Tizzi and then retiring to Free Pizza as an assistant coach to Hutchins in season 49.

We would like to clarify that the word 'former' in "former ginger defender" referred only to 'defender', and not that he is no longer a ginger.

Free Pizza and Frank's® RedHot

Posted 23 January 2013

To begin season 51, Free Pizza management has announced a new sponsorship deal with Frank's® RedHot brand cayenne pepper sauce. This includes a team match jersey deal as well as a major renovation to SRC Arena, now named Frank's® RedHot Arena.

Spokesman Washington M. O'Ghirardelli announced the partnership during a season kick-off press conference, where new uniforms were also unveiled. Construction on the stadium began last week, and according to O'Ghirardelli the expansion will add room for almost 11,000 additional spectators. Finnish designer Danska was credited with contributing to the uniform design.

After laying a trap for him using a sign promising tickets to a local Carl Douglas concert, we were able to ask maverick team owner Abner Goblin about the deal.

"I put that s*** on everything! What else do you want me to say?"

Free Pizza is King of the Mountain

Posted 7 November 2012

This afternoon saw Free Pizza spare no mercy in knocking Bluecano off to take the USA King of the Mountain title, with a merciless 6-0 victory.

Seadogs' team held 55% of possession, but the young team couldn't get past Pizza's formidable back four. Pizza's scoring was led by a hat-trick in the first half by Johnny Wilhelm, followed by second half goals by Cacapava, Kilchenmann, and Ingram. Wing-back Sam Quan was awarded the Man of the Match, and Muller-Huwen took home his third clean sheet of the season.

Crab Goblin, eccentric man about town and Pizza's manager of almost three seasons, was visibly happy about the result. With his thick eggnog-moustache, we were able to pull him away from his celebrations for just long enough to get his comments on the game.

"I'm really proud of the team today, and now that we have been given HT Stage access, I would have to say that this new goal button is pretty freakin' sweet!"

NickE is in Italy

Posted 12 June 2012 by Christian Barrios

Some people asked me about Nicky Escobedo, since he kinda dropped off the map there a couple weeks ago. He got signed by some Italian team. Sorry I didn't tell anyone, I hope nobody called the cops on a missing person or anything.

—Christian Barrios

Clemente Ordonez promoted to first team

Posted 3 May 2012 by Christian Barrios

I'm pleased to announce that our very own terrific number twenty-two has accepted a contract for Free Pizza's main squad. Ordonez has distinguished himself thoroughly since we opened up the academy last season, as I'm sure he will continue to do during his new challenges in professional soccer. Congratulations Clemente!

—Christian Barrios

Continued stadium expansion

Posted 23 April 2012

Spokesman Washington M. O'Ghirardelli has announced that further construction has begun for JFS Construction Stadium, after the club's first sold-out match on Sunday:

"Continued expansions were already planned, but we have pushed forward the schedule, and the construction of an additional 3800 seats has begun immediately and will be ready for our next league match against Anuban Wattana," O'Ghirardelli reported.

We visited enigmatic club manager Abner "Crab" Goblin at his mountaintop castle lair to get his thoughts on the expansion:

"Bwahaha! Our plan worked! All we had to do was post flyers around the Syracuse University campus, with nothing but the team name, dates and times for our matches, and the address of our stadium, and the students came pouring in! I knew that the hordes of starving undergrads and overworked grad students wouldn't be able to resist a poster advertizing free pizza!"

Pizza is available during matches for $8.75 a slice.

Thank you

Posted 6 January 2012 by crabGoblin

To start off here, I want to thank the board for giving me this exceptional opportunity to manage this team, and to assure the fans, players, and everyone else that I am committed to this club. I'm here for the long haul, and I see great potential for growth and, of course, many wins. We are all sorry to see Mr. AtlantaHotspur go, since he has done an excellent job with the team so far this season, and left me a team in a very comfortable first-place standing on the table. This does not mean I am going to sit back, though, and I am replacing coach Orr with my good friend Alejandro Doncel. Also with several transfer prospects in mind, I am very optimistic that we will finish the season strong so we can look forward to next season in the fifth division.
