The new women’s club team under Tormenta FC is seeking submissions from the public on what the team name should be.
From the press release:
Since the club’s formation in 2015, South Georgia Tormenta FC has broken barriers, taken its communities to new heights and shined a spotlight on the growth of soccer in South Georgia and the Lowcountry of South Carolina, and today, Tormenta FC is excited to make history once again by announcing the formation of a new women’s team, which will compete in the United Soccer League’s new women’s competition beginning in 2022.
Ahead of the new team’s inaugural season, Tormenta FC will make many important announcements, including the official team branding, coaching staff additions, players and more.
Tormenta Women will serve as the official placeholder name of the team, while the club will ask YOU, the community, for name submissions.

In its 11-year history, Tormenta FC Academy has produced a number of rising female talents, who went on to play for top colleges throughout the region and now have the opportunity to return to their local club. For example, rising star Abi Brighton plays for Vanderbilt University and recently was called up to the U-20 National Team Virtual Meetings.
The new women’s team will play its matches on Optim Health System Field at Tormenta FC’s state-of-the-art facility in Statesboro, which will also serve as the home to the club’s professional USL League One team, the USL League Two squad and USL Academy youth teams — as well as both the Georgia Southern University Men’s and Women’s NCAA Division I soccer teams. When not in use for soccer, the stadium will host live concerts, and maintain space available for conferences, weddings, reunions and other large gatherings.
