San Francisco City Football Club publicly open their new Club House and Team Store on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at 12:00PM.
Located at The Yard at Mission Rock (across from AT&T Park), the team sees the Club House & Team Store as a meeting place for their members and soccer fans from around the Bay Area. Fans will be able to purchase team merchandise, club memberships, and match-day tickets for the club’s upcoming 2017 Season.
The team’s hope is the store will raise their profile locally, aligning them with other other professional sports teams who provide physical locations and services to fans and the community separate from their stadiums.
Since, 2001, San Francisco City FC has been a community-owned soccer club, now representing San Francisco in the USL Premier Development League’s Western Conference, the 4th tier of the US soccer pyramid.
San Francisco City FC is 51% owned by members and features a board of directors who all represent the club’s mission of enriching the community fabric of San Francisco through service activities and volunteerism.
The Grand Opening will include the unveiling of SF City’s 2017 jersey, a prize raffle, food and drink specials, as well as a meet-and-greet with team manager Paddy Coyne, players, staff, sponsors, and board of directors.
“San Francisco has a proud soccer history, with over 100 years of legendary teams, coaches, and players,” says San Francisco City FC President Jacques Pelham. “The Club House & Team Store allows us to write the next chapter of that history and show the world that San Francisco can lead the way in raising the visibility of soccer in this country.”
