AFC Ann Arbor took to Twitter on Friday to acknowledge its large array of Ann Arbor local sponsors that will provide support for the Mighty Oak during the 2016 NPSL season.

The semi-professional team out of Washtenaw County has been "hush-hush" over the span of the offseason, announcing very little details about the club after jumping into life at the NPSL level.

As the climb into the NPSL began, AFC Ann Arbor revealed that it had parted way with inaugural season head coach Dave Hebestreit, and had hired tenured and traveled coach Eric Rudland.

Since then, things have been pretty quiet on the AFCAA side of town.

On March 31, the club announced that it will reveal the Mighty Oak roster in a "Reveal and Roll" event at Ann Arbor's very own Revel & Roll bowling alley, where coaches and team members will be announced.

On April 8, the team once again popped up on Twitter to thank returning sponsors of the team as well as announce the addition of key sponsors for the upcoming season.

"The support from the local Ann Arbor business community has been amazing," Bilal Saeed, co-owner of AFC Ann Arbor told FTLOF. "Especially [support] from returning sponsors like Bank of Ann Arbor and Audi of Ann Arbor."

Amongst the Bank of Ann Arbor and Audi of Ann Arbor are returning sponsors such as Absopure, Constant Motion Productions, Arbor Brewing Company and BTB Burrito.

New sponsors to the Mighty Oak consist of Farm Bureau Insurance, Play it Again Sports-Ann Arbor and the aforementioned Revel & Roll bowling alley.

"We now have over 20 sponsors, the majority of them being from the local region," Saeed said. "Each and every sponsor plays a role in bringing semi-pro soccer to Ann Arbor.

"It's a testament for the love of the game in our community."

AFCAA will reveal its complete roster on April 17, and plans to play its first game of the 2016 calendar year at Holloway Field on April 29 against Oakland County FC .
