In 2013, the team announced it would end its partnership with the Texans and adopt a new name, Pensacola City FC.[3]

Controversy[edit]

When the team folded, it caused controversy among players, and the team's owner.[6] The team's owner claimed that players showed up hungover and did not put in any effort during training sessions.[7] Players, however, say these statements were untrue. These players claim that they were removed from apartments, not properly trained, and room and board was not covered as per usual in NPSL.[8] Additionally coaches from other NPSL teams in Pensacola's division stated incredible displeasure with the events referring to the mid-season closing as "Irresponsible. Unprofessional. Embarrassing...".[9]
