Games of the Week – May 20

Looking for high-quality local soccer to watch LIVE, but don’t know where to start? NorCal Premier Soccer has you covered with our games of the week.

As it’s our belief that soccer should be supported at every level, NorCal will look to highlight the top professional, college, and amateur games in the region.

“He knows it is ‘player number twelve’ who stirs up the winds of fervor that propel the ball when she falls asleep, just as the other eleven players know that playing without their fans is like dancing without music.” – Eduardo Galeano

If your club isn’t listed below and you would like it to be, or you’re aware of a game you think should be featured, please email eream@norcalpremier.com.

But without further ado, here are this week’s listings:

Game of the Week: Fresno Fuego vs. Phoenix Rising FC

When: Wednesday May 17, 7:00 p.m.

Where: Fresno State Soccer Field

Competition: U.S. Open Cup

Additional Info: After an opportunistic first round Open Cup win against La Maquina, the Fresno Fuego play host to Phoenix Rising FC of the USL. For fans of the international game, this represents an excellent opportunity as the Phoenix Rising roster includes former World Cup players in Didier Drogba, Omar Bravo, and Shaun Wright-Phillips. The winner of this match will move onto the next round of the tournament and face the winner of the San Francisco Deltas and Burlingame Dragons. Tickets are available here.

Game of the Week: San Francisco Deltas vs. Burlingame Dragons FC

When: Wednesday May 17, 7:00 p.m.

Where: Cagan Stadium at Stanford University

Competition: U.S. Open Cup

Additional Info: After an opportunistic win on penalties against former Open Cup champion El Farolito, the Burlingame Dragons will participate in their second straight NorCal derby against NASL side San Francisco Deltas. For the Deltas, it’s their first-ever Open Cup game, and the first time they will play a competitive match outside of their normal home venue, Kezar Stadium. Tickets are available here.

Game of the Week: Sacramento Republic FC vs. Anahuac FC

When: Saturday May 17, 7:30 p.m.
