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 crabGoblin. Pizza's first team plays it's fixtures at SRC Arena, a venue with seating for 16,900 spectators. Caldera's head coach is currently Raphael Hutchins, an American who 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. 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.

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.

From the manager

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.
