Bellevue Athletic FC Mission Statement
Bellevue Athletic FC was formed with the belief that there is an extensive and untapped talent pool in the Greater Seattle area that is lacking opportunities at the professional level. By providing opportunities for younger talents and undiscovered gems, BAFC will work to fill the gap and provide a pathway to higher-level professional leagues. In the future, BAFC will also work towards becoming a higher-tier professional team and grow our brand locally and internationally.
