Jacksonville Armada FC revealed today that Steve Livingstone is out as president of the club and that owner and CEO Mark Frisch has taken over day-to-day operations as the organization gears up for its second season in the NASL. 

Frisch also serves as the Chairman of the NASL Board of Governors.
“The passion that the Northeast Florida community has shown for soccer since our club was founded has been tremendous,” said Frisch. “The club’s front office staff, players and soccer operations teams are all committed to ensuring we provide the very best product on and off the field. I look forward to working closely with our staff to continue the growth of the Jacksonville Armada FC and the sport of soccer regionally and nationally.”

“I want to thank Steve for all of his contributions and wish him the best in his future endeavors,” Frisch added.

Livingstone was the first ever hire for Armada FC back in October of 2013. 

Today’s front office shake up is the second major change for the club, following the dismissal of Head Coach Guillermo Hoyos and General Manager Dario Sala back in September. Tony Meola was tapped as the new coach and technical director of the club early into the offseason.

    It was overdue, lots of internal issues with him. And, the 2015 attendance that Livingstone announced at end of last season was overstated by 30%.

    Let’s face it. Selling minor league soccer in north FL is no easy task. Hoping NASL keeps building with quality ownership and can achieve D1 status from USSF….plenty of room for MLS and NASL to co-exist side by side.
