The Green Mountain Boys (GMB) were founded in 1933 in Montpellier. Twenty Years after their founding they did the unthinkable and pulled off one of the biggest upsets in US Soccer History winning the US Open Cup in 1953. This was the first season a 4th division had been added with the GMB finishing 6th. Following that victory, interest in the team increased and they moved to Burlington in a new stadium called Battery Park.
In 1970 they outdid themselves and won the US Open Cup for a Second time. Again, they were playing in the 4th division and were having an unremarkable season. A few early upsets left the team focusing on the tournament and winning the whole thing in one of the most stunning results in US Sports History.
Their reputation as Giant Killers has not led to league success rarely rising above America 3. They have won the Coca-Cola Commissioner Trophy twice, which is the tournament amongst all America 3 & 4 Teams, but they typically finish in the middle of America 3.
The team’s logo features a deer against a blue field with 11 stars which are taken from the original Vermont flag. The change kit takes the start element on a blue field paired with green shorts. The Home kit features a sash which is a nod to the revolutionary war regiment that went by the same name. This season's goalie kit is inspired by the famous Vermont fall foliage.
