Springfield Athletic Sporting Club co-owner Anthony Lambert

Springfield Athletic Sporting Club co-owners Anthony Lambert and Lauren B. Cramer are shooting for more than just local entertainment. 

They also want to enhance soccer’s growing popularity and elevate the Springfield area’s pool of talent.

The newfangled Springfield ASC Under-23 men’s soccer team is scheduled to commence its inaugural season this May in the pre-professional USL League Two, per a recent announcement by the United Soccer League.

Lambert said they wanted to expand operations with a new chapter and facility — and USL provided the competitive platform. 

“The sport itself continues to grow in the U.S., and Springfield being a part of that growth is a wonderful thing,” Lambert said.
