Giuseppe Funicello
Founder & Director
Giuseppe “Joe” Funicello began his professional career out of high school with the New York/New Jersey MetroStars in MLS’ Reserve League. From there, Joe moved to England and played in the non-league system while keeping fit and looking for his next opportunity, which came with Real Maryland Monarchs in USL. After a season with Real Maryland, Joe moved to Thor Akureyri in Iceland, beginning his European career in earnest, moving between top teams in Finland, playing in the Europa League, and getting his first taste of coaching. Joe retired from playing in 2013, and is now the head coach of Vestri FC in Iceland while carrying on his role as CEO of SoccerViza.
