Consultants from the three organizations will help the school launch a soccer program. The partnership will result in the creation of a club program. MBC will have the club for two seasons then work to move into a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) conference.

Morris Brown offers a unique, affordable, and quality education that prepares students for success,” MBC President Dr. Kevin James said. “As we rebuild the institution, we felt it very important that student life including Greek Life and some athletic programs be implemented for a full HBCU experience.
