Landsdowne Bhoys, undoubtedly named after Landsdowne Road (the Home of Irish Soccer) and Celtic FC (Bhoys is their nickname) won the Werner Fricker Cup in 2017, the Premier US Amateur Soccer Cup in the United States of America. First established in 1999, the Werner Fricker Cup continues the tradition of US Ameteur Cups dating back to the late 19th Century.

Based in Yonkers, NY, the Landsdowne Bhoys won 5-0 in the Final against Motagua NOLA, with goals scored by Francois Navarro, Daryl Kavanagh, Sean Kelly, Skele Sylvester and Jean Voltaire. In the Semi-Finals they had defeated Sporting Michigan 3-0 and Motagua had beaten Quinta Elemento 3-2.
