Villarreal Nebraska Academy


History of Our Club

Lincoln Soccer Association began in 2015 and contracted with area Director of Coaches to provide soccer for local players under the name  Magellan Soccer Club. In Fall 2017 those former Directors moved their family to California. After an ample applicant pool of 70+ applicants, LSA hired DOC Jorge Sambataro in November 2017, a professionally licensed coach and former professional player, to fill-out the final contract to the members in May of 2018. At the conclusion of that contract and soccer year, Magellan Soccer Club in Lincoln Nebraska ceased to exist.

In May of 2018, Villarreal C.F. sought out Director of Coaching Jorge Sambataro to begin the first USA Villarreal Academy, under their worldwide Academy Program. Villarreal Nebraska Academy, an Official Partner Academy of Villarreal C.F. was born in Lincoln Nebraska with LSA as the first Official Partner Academy in the United States.
