  • The Jacksonville Tea Men were a soccer team based in Jacksonville, Florida, U.S. Overall, the Tea Men played a total of four seasons in Jacksonville, first in the major league-level North American Soccer League (NASL) from 1980–1982, then in the lower level American Soccer League and United Soccer League from 1982–1984. The NASL incarnation of the club was Jacksonville's first professional soccer team, and the first major league-level sport franchise ever based in the city. The team originated as the New England Tea Men, based in Foxborough, Massachusetts, retaining their Boston Tea Party-themed name after moving to Jacksonville. They played both outdoor and indoor soccer, with the Gator Bowl Stadium and the Jacksonville Coliseum serving as their home fields. Though they performed well on the field in their first year, they were ultimately unable to overcome the financial difficulties that had plagued them since New England, and were disbanded by the NASL after the 1981–1982 season. A new owner brought the Tea Men into the minor league-level American Soccer League the next season, where they won the 1983 ASL Championship. They moved into the new United Soccer League in 1983, but financial pressures caused the team to fold after the end of the season. (en)

  • Il club nacque in un sobborgo di Boston, Foxborough, nel 1978, per iniziativa della Lipton, la nota multinazionale alimentare produttrice di tè. Il nome, New England Tea Men, richiamava il celebre Boston Tea Party, la rivolta del tè del 1773 che diede origine alla guerra d’indipendenza americana. L'esordio, avvenuto nel campionato NASL 1978, fu abbastanza incoraggiante poiché la squadra, guidata dal bomber inglese Mike Flanagan (30 goal in 28 apparizioni), arrivò prima a pari punti con i Tampa Bay Rowdies nella sua divisione, la Eastern Division della American Conference, anche se in seguito fu eliminata agli ottavi di finale dai Fort Lauderdale Strikers per tre ad uno al Foxboro Stadium. Anche per la mancata conferma di Flanagan impegnato con i Charlton Athletic ed il trasferimento momentaneo al piccolo stadio universitario del Nickerson Field, ad esso fecero seguito campionati deludenti come quello successivo del 1979, arrivando ultimi e non accendo ai successivi play-off, o quello della prima edizione indoor 1979-80 con la stessa ed identica sorte. Dopo un ennesimo campionato (1980) che la vide si accedere play-off ma uscire ancora agli ottavi ancora per mano dei Tampa Bay Rowdies, la franchigia venne trasferita in Florida, per mancato successo di pubblico e di appeal verso gli sponsor.
