Liverpool Football Club International Academy- Michigan is a travel soccer club based in Pontiac, Michigan, with more than 450 players aged 8-18 who compete in premier and mid-level select programs. The club also offers developmental programs for ages 3-10.
The club was originally founded in 1995 as the Force Football Club. In February 2016, Force partnered with Liverpool FC International Academy- America to become its first official partner club in the Midwest.

The club continues under the leadership of Owner and General Manager Andy Wagstaff, Director of Coaching Kevin Garner, and Assistant Director of Coaching Daniel Price.
