FCB FRONT OFFICE

Alex Lubyansky- General Manager 

Alex Lubyansky has a special place in his heart for the NPSL. His time with the Detroit Arsenal led him to win an NPSL Championship and Finals Most Valuable Player award, obtain a professional trial with Dynamo Kiev FC in Ukraine (frequent Champions League contenders) and launch a career in soccer.

His loving & supportive wife Alison convinced him to walk away from his other career as an attorney to focus on soccer and he has not looked back since. Together, they have an adorable son named Benjamin and the world’s most poorly trained trio of Pomeranians. Send Alex an email.

 

Joe Shargorodsky- Director of Gameday Operations

Joe loves soccer and the city of Baltimore. As a player he enjoyed making his teammates better (he had a silly number of assists as a youth player). He continued his virtuosity into his full-time career as a doctor. He grew his affinity for Baltimore while attending Johns Hopkins University for a fellowship as part of his medical training.

When he is not saving lives- Joe is in the stands of FCB making sure everything is running smoothly. His wife Danielle, son Ethan and daughter Sabrina are often at the games right alongside of him.
