The Far Post Soccer Supply Company is more than the provider of all of the FC Portland gear to our players and families - everyone connected to The Far Post is part of our success over many years!  

Starting with the first golf memorial tournament in Clive’s memory in 2008, The Far Post Soccer Supply Company provided then and continued to provide until the last golf tournament in 2015, the lead sponsorship for this scholarship benefit tournament.  Their generosity over the years has triggered others to give and support all the players who have earned a spot within the Academy by helping those who qualify for a scholarship also earn a need based grant. Since the initial 2008 event, The Far Post Soccer Scholarship Fund has helped nearly 90 players participate in our training program, be seen by college coaches, earn a college scholarship and compete at the highest levels.

Sonny Jepson, owner of Far Post and a long-time friend to Clive and to the Academy, reminds us that “this whole effort, everyone’s good work and devotion to the kids, to the programs and to game is something Clive would be so happy to see happening and we’re simply honored to be part of the Academy and doing this is our way of helping and celebrating his memory.”  

 Sonny recalls how “Clive loved to golf, loved to bet – his favorite saying on the course was “let’s bet a buck….” and he was so much fun to be around, he just loved life – he was a great role model for all of us and a friend dearly missed!”  

The Academy extends our heartfelt thanks to The Far Post and to Sonny Jepson for their investment in the program and for their support of each player who wears the FC Portland training shirt and uniform.
