History

Club owner and UPSL Commissioner Yan Skwara re-launched L.A. Wolves FC in 2014, after taking a number of names for a club into consideration. The club was founded with the aspirations of turning professional in mind.[1][2] L.A. Wolves play their home games at Toyota Sports Complex in Torrance and are a current member of the United Premier Soccer League (UPSL), a USASA Premier league.

On August 30, 2014 the L.A. Wolves played their first match, a 6–0 victory in a friendly over the Orange County Crew SC at Toyota Sports Complex.

Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup

L.A. Wolves FC is a four-time participant in Open Qualifying for the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, and has twice advanced to the tournament's Third Round (2016-'17).

During the club's opening USOC qualification effort in 2016, Wolves FC defeated Del Rey City SC (UPSL) and Cal FC (UPSL) to advance to the tournament proper. In the First Round, Wolves FC walked over Ventura County Fusion of the Premier Development League by way of protest and disqualification, due to VC Fusion fielding of an ineligible player. Wolves FC followed with a 4-2 shootout victory in the Second Round over Orange County Blues FC of the United Soccer League before falling to La Máquina FC (UPSL), 2-0, in the Third Round. La Maquina FC went on to lose, 4-2 in overtime, to L.A. Galaxy of Major League Soccer in one of the most controversial USOC games in recent history
