The USFC stands for United Sherpa Football Club. The club was established by Mr. Chhiring Namgyal Sherpa and Mr. Sangbo Sherpa in New York in 2012 with a mission “to unite the Himalayan communities, and build strength and friendship among them”. Its motto is “Unity, Strength, and Friendship for the community”.

USFC is open to all the Himalayan communities and doesn’t discriminate anyone. Apart from training sessions and practices on Friday evenings, and Sunday mornings, USFC also participates in leagues and tournaments.
