Soccer History in Dayton, Ohio

Soccer in the Miami Valley dates to early factory teams as seen in the photograph below of one of the NCR teams in 1915. The game remained and flourished within ethnic clubs like the Englewood's German Edelweiss team, which competed with similar clubs in the Ohio-Indiana-Kentucky (O-I-K) League into the 1970s.
