Elizabeth S.C.

Elizabeth S.C.

Elizabeth S.C. is an inactive American soccer club based in Union County, New Jersey that is an inactive member of the Cosmopolitan Soccer League.


Elizabeth S.C. was founded in 1924 in Elizabeth, New Jersey by a group of German immigrants who shared a passion for the game of soccer. The club immediately joined the German American Soccer League, now the Cosmopolitan Soccer League. In 1940, the Liberty Sport Club merged into Elizabeth S.C. In the 1940s, the club started divisions for fencing, track and field, handball and bowling.

In the post-World War II era, Elizabeth S.C. experienced a tremendous growth in membership, which, in turn, resulted in success in the club's athletic teams. In 1949, the club would capture the U.S. Amateur Cup. Over next few years, the club would start a Ladies Auxiliary and expand its youth movement. Additionally, in 1960 and 1961, the club's handball division would win the U.S. championships.

In 1965, Elizabeth S.C. purchased its long-time playing field and clubhouse, Farcher's Grove, through a holding corporation. The club's soccer program reached new heights in 1970 when the club won the U.S. Open Cup. The club would again win the Open Cup in 1972. The club also won two league championships in the 1970s as well as the New Jersey State Cup.

In the 1980s, the club's youth program, the Union Lancers, won the Under-19 championships in 1987 and 1988. In 1989, Elizabeth S.C. won the New Jersey State Cup for the last time. In 1999, Farcher's Grove was sold and the club was left without a playing field. After searching for other options, the club suspended its athletic activities. The club remains an inactive member of the Cosmopolitan Soccer League and continues to meet regularly.
