Title: Head Coach

Coach Zomopoulos serves as the Head Coach of Berkeley College's men's soccer team. Additionally, he is the Associate Head Coach of the Knights' women's soccer team. Zomopoulos joined Berkeley after spending three years as the head men's soccer coach at John Jay College, during which time he led John Jay to the CUNYAC Conference Final in 2006.

Under Zomopoulos' guidance, the Berkeley College New York men's soccer team has enjoyed a tremendous amount of success. Since 2009, he has led the Knights to six appearances in the Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Tournament final - and three conference titles (in 2010, 2012, and 2015). The Knights captured HVIAC Regular Season titles in 2013 and 2015, and shared the crown in 2012.

Additionally, Zomopoulos has helped the Knights earn National recognition, leading Berkeley to two appearances in the USCAA Men's Soccer National Tournament in both the 2013 and 2015 campaigns. In 2013, the Knights were selected to compete for a National crown, and made the most of that opportunity by recording a quarterfinal round victory over the defending National champion at the time - Briarcliffe. This past season - Berkeley earned its way into the National Tournament via an automatic bid for winning the HVIAC tournament. The Knights defeated Concordia College-Alabama in the quarterfinals before pushing No. 1 seeded Bryant & Stratton-Syracuse to its limit in the semifinals.

Berkeley College's No. 4 USCAA ranking was its highest ever - and matched its ranking from the 2013 season. The Knights are also the only non-scholarship institution to have reached the semifinals of the National tournament twice. Both times, Berkeley defeated scholarship schools to do so. On Zomopoulos' watch, six different student-athletes have earned USCAA All-American status, and 10 student-athletes have been named Academic All-Americans.

Zomopoulos is also a two-time Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year, as he earned those distinctions during the 2013 and 2015 campaigns.

Prior to John Jay, Mr. Zomopoulos was the assistant coach for the Borough of Manhattan Community College men's soccer team, where he also assisted in the establishment of the women's program. During his tenure at BMCC, the men's team won Region XV and lost in the NJCAA Division III semi-finals.

At club level, he has led the New York Greek Americans to a United States National Amateur Cup championship in 2013, and to the semi-finals in the USSF National Amateur Championships (D4) in 2014.

On Friday, October 5, 2018, Zomopoulos passed his on-site evaluation and received his USSF Senior A License, the highest level of license issued by the USSF except for head coaches that have an MLS team, the USSF Pro. Currently, he is one of less than 100 coaches who has that level license in the country.

Mr. Zomopoulos is a graduate of Columbia University, where he played Division I soccer and won three Ivy League championships while also reaching the 1983 NCAA Division I Finals as a player. Following his collegiate playing career, Coach Zomopoulos entered the American Express Corporate Management program, where he worked for American Express, both in Manhattan and in Australia, and developed an extensive international business background.
