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
