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

With the start of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup this week, we’re doing things a little bit differently here. Instead of headlining with a professional game of the week, we’re going to highlight our Open Cup matches in the interests of promoting the second-longest continually-running cup tournament in the world.
But without further ado, here are this week’s listings:
