If any of the fire and determination of the founders and officers of San Francisco City FC translates onto the field of play the team is going to be pretty much unstoppable. These passionate supporters of the game at its grass roots level had to negotiate a bureaucratic nightmare tighter than a Barcelona defense just to get a place in the US Club Soccer NorCal Premier League. But nothing was going to stop these guys, their love for the beautiful game runs deep.
SF City FC’s journey is just beginning, these are heady times, and last night the club celebrated the unveiling of their jersey sponsors Classy and Street Soccer USA. Both organizations will be featured on the Club’s jerseys and will act as ongoing partners.
Classy is the world’s largest fundraising platform for social good organizations powering more than 1,000 nonprofits and social enterprises.
Street Soccer USA has been defining sports for social change since its inception in 2007. Since then, Street Soccer USA has grown to encompass programs in 16 cities across the United States.
Steven Kenyon, Vice-President of Community Development said:
"We are building something special around soccer in San Francisco by uniting community partners that value sports as a platform for positive social change. SF City FC is lucky to continue strengthening this ambitious vision by partnering with Classy, Campaign Monitor, and Street Soccer USA for 2015 and beyond. Together, our organizations will continue to grow the San Francisco soccer community around common goals shared by members, stakeholders, and our fan base at large."
Earlier last month the club beat a team from Stanislaus County, 3-0, in a US Open Cup qualifying game out at the stadium on the campus of San Francisco State.
SF City started off the 2015 regular NorCal Premier League season with a convincing 5-0 defeat of Redwood City Juventus SC
If you want to see how strong soccer is in the USA go to a SF City game this season, and see for yourself that the game here is alive, thriving, and growing.
