We do not reach our 10th season without our supporters, coaches, and players, and we’re asking all of the above — plus the unbiased media — to choose a Best XI from our first 10 years as a club.
The club worked with alumni as well as The Buffalo News scribe Ben Tsujimoto to put together a list of nominees at each positional group on the pitch.
Tsujimoto unleashed his personal Best XI, which will be used in conjunction with alumni votes and the below fan vote to help tabulate a 10th Anniversary Team. He also laid out the criteria for nomination:
For transparency’s sake, these are the criteria, in order of weight, that led to the formation of this team: impact – statistical and eye-test – over the course of multiple seasons (loyalty, longevity, connection with fan base); statistical excellence in one season; leadership and overall affect on club culture; pure soccer ability.https://buffalonews.com/2019/03/27/bn-soccers-best-xi-for-fc-buffalos-10th-anniversary/
We also considered players who were voted award winners by their teammates at the end of respective seasons.
