San Francisco, CA – The San Francisco Glens SC PDL Team released their 2018 home schedule today amid increasing anticipation in the SF soccer community. The club, which will call Boxer Stadium home in their inaugural season, have already attracted the interest and attention from soccer enthusiasts all over the bay area. The high-quality soccer showcased at their recent tryouts and scrimmages added further fuel to the expectation, and today’s release shows soccer fans what’s in store for the 2018 season. Under Head-Coach Javier Ayala-Hill, they have set out their stall early – a professional approach in everything they do to deliver high quality soccer.
On first glance, some local rivalries jump out – the season opener against Santa Cruz Breakers on May 5th at Boxer Stadium, and later an all-SF derby versus SF City FC on June 2nd. Fans can expect the extra edge that comes from two teams that know each other well.
Fans can expect a flavor of the more traditional NorCal - SoCal rivalry that has permeated all sports for some time now when they host one of four Southern California based team, included former PDL Champions Ventura County Fusion.
They will then close out the season against against the newly rebranded Fresno FC U23, the PDL affiliate of the USL’s Fresno FC. The SF Glens PDL have extended an invitation to all soccer fans in and around the city, not only their core fans, as they work to build something special in and around San Francisco.
