The amateur soccer cup community centered around the U.S. Amateur Cup, the Werner Fricker Open Cup, and the Gerhard Mengel Over-30 Cup, knew the name of Christos FC long before the 2016 cup season. This club was known for 3 National Over-30 Cup titles, those being 2012, 2013, and 2014. In 2016 Christos joined the ranks of a very few clubs to have won more than one of these cup competitions but also broke ground with a new record: they are the only club to have titles in all three.
In addition to that as you can see in the tweet above the club is very proud to have 5 national titles in 5 years. They have won the Gerhard Mengel Over-30 Cup in 2012, 2013, and 2014. They also won the Werner Fricker Open Cup and the U.S. Amateur Cup in 2016 only a week apart.

On Sunday, July 31, 2016, Christos FC won their first Werner Fricker Open Cup title after a 8:1 win over Obilic Legends of Region II. The match took place at Troy Park in Elkridge, Maryland.
