Six national titles sitting on the trophy case. (20 August) Christos FC topped its cup season with another national title brought home, the Werner Fricker Cup for the Amateur Open Championship. The club last won the competition in 2016 and did so again in grand fashion for the second time. The National Finals were held at the Premier Sports Campus in Lakewood Ranch, Florida and included the Gerhard Mengel Cup, the National Over-30 Championship and the National Over-40 Cup.
Christos had two sides in those finals including its Over-30 team that was edged out by eventual champion Nashville United of Tennessee (Region III) 1:0. It did take third place with a 3:0 shutout of AAC Eagles of Illinois (Region II).
The open team added another trophy to its case with the Werner Fricker Cup. In the semifinal, it defeated Clockwork FC of North Carolina (Region III) 4:1. It then went up against local side Sarasota FC Premier of Florida (Region III) in a very competitive match between the two finalists despite the score line. Christos had their scoring boots with a brace from Brian Graham and goals by Oumar Ballo & Jamie Merriam for a 5:1 title win. It was the sixth national title for Christos. The club achieved a state quadruple last season winning the Rowland, Stewart, Over-30 & Over-40 Cups.
