History

Aris joined the National Premier Soccer League as an expansion team in 2009, having been formed by Greek-American businessman Greg Saliaras, the owner of a successful soccer store in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and who named the team after his favorite club, Aris Thessaloniki.[1] The team is affiliated with the EC Aris soccer team, which has been competing in youth soccer leagues in the Eau Claire area for many years.

The Aris played their first competitive game on May 31, 2009, a 5-0 loss to Wisconsin rivals Madison 56ers, which set the manner in which their first competitive season would continue; they did not achieve an on-field victory at all year, picking up their only points when their opponents in their final regular season game, FC Indiana, forfeited the game. They finished second from bottom in the Midwest Division, only avoiding last spot as a result of Indiana's points deduction.

The team was not listed on the league's website ahead of the 2015 season.[2]

In 2017, they joined the NPSL North Conference.
