VALUE & HISTORY: The San Francisco Soccer Football League (SFSFL) humble beginnings began in 1902. A group of immigrants having crossed the Pacific Ocean in the 1880s wanted to start-up a social club as they set foot in San Francisco and in 1902, 8 clubs were form with names like: Pastimes, Barbarians, Oakland Hornets, Vampires, American-British Rifles, Independents, Albion Rovers and the Thistles FC. These clubs grew and set deep-roots in San Francisco, forming dynasty teams while making soccer history as chronicled in the local papers. As such, SFSFL players were known across the United States, the Olympics and CONCACAF and back home in the old land in pubs and neighborhoods which they once played. SFSFL members have been honored in the US Soccer and California Soccer Association-North Hall of Fame for their contribution to the game in America. During the 70’s thru the 90’s, SFSFL teams on 4 separate occasions won the US Lamar Open Cup; were runner-up on 2 occasions, with the last club team having made an historic run in the US Open Cup, having knocked out 3 MLS teams before losing the championship match on shootouts. The SFSFL became the league and supportive club to help launch professional soccer in San Francisco and semi-professional teams in the bay area. Our members are today's leaders in the soccer community. Today, SFSFL is headquartered in SF at the Verdi Club - a social club. Teams and clubs play semi-professional soccer every Sunday and still stay committed to its roots and community in San Francisco. Come join us!!
