Uniforms & Fan Shop

Our uniforms are unique. They are meant to be different and represent the Club’s European heritage and values. The design is meant to be eye catching yet classic as can be seen on both the international stage and many of the European Soccer pitches throughout the world..

Orange and Blue are ever present on our badge and our kits and is tribute to The Netherlands and the Total Soccer methods that we embrace. Even our goalkeeping uniforms are designed to embrace the classic looks worn by most of the goalkeepers we’ve seen competing in the World Cup this winter.

FC Batavia is proud to partner with Soccer.com  as our exclusive Uniform and Fan Gear supplier. You can access the FC Batavia Team Store here. You can also contact your team manager or email us for access to our private Team Store if you have not received an invitation.

FC Batavia Success Story: Ty Meagher

ty-meagherOur former player Ty Meagher just signed his first pro contract with Valley United FC! We are incredibly proud of his achievement and his dedication to reaching his dream. Congratulations Ty! Your journey has just begun, and we will be following you every step on the way. You more than deserve this and you are an inspiration for our young Batavians!

We recently asked Ty to share his thoughts on his experience playing for Coach Rick and this is what he said.

“Along my youth soccer journey, I’ve had many coaches. What separates Coach Rick from the others is how he not only develops the entire team but also personally connects to each player specifically offering a way to better themselves on and off the field.”

Being part of Rick’s teams always felt more like a family environment rather than a business. I always felt that he truly cared about my development. It wasn’t always about winning or losing but more of how the team and myself can get better. He gave me the opportunity to experience my first trial where he played professionally in the Netherlands which gave me the confidence to really push myself to play professionally and achieve my goal. Rick always supported me and I’m forever grateful.”

Your support has always meant the world to our entire family. A little piece of you walks on that pitch with him every time. Keep promoting your club and what you do!”

We also know it’s important to hear what other parents might have to say. Ty’s mom, Angie, shared these thoughts with us.

“Thank you just doesn’t seem to be enough! The coach before told Ty ‘Your goal of playing pro is one in a million.’ So in the car I told Ty, ‘Well, someone has to be the one!’ That very next tournament you approached Todd and I and invited us to tryouts. Man was that perfect timing!

Our tryout season has officially concluded and we must send a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated. Our tryout numbers were higher than ever before and we can't thank you enough for your attendance, communication, telling your friends about us, your patience with parking and check-in, as well as the effort and skill the athletes put on display these past 3 weeks. If you have not heard from a coach regarding your athlete, you should be hearing from them very soon.

A big thank you also goes out to our coaches and many volunteers. You arrived early, set up tables, answered questions, evaluated players, talked with families, and brought positive energy so that everyone would have FUN at tryouts. Go Batavia!
