SAN FRANCISCO—In less than two weeks, a professional soccer team, the San Francisco Deltas will make their debut. The team belongs to the B2 category and is a member of the North American Soccer League. Which is one level below Major League Soccer.
The San Francisco Deltas had to fight their way in. On March 16, 2016, team players, families, co-workers, members of the neighborhood and supporters petitioned at San Francisco City Hall. To officially become a professional soccer team to discuss the benefits of making Kezar Stadium the team’s home base.
While the Deltas have many people behind them, not everyone is happy with their presence, as concerns of traffic issues have been raised. Kezer Stadium is located in the southeastern corner of Golden Gate Park. Its accessible to the community.
The San Francisco News asked an individual who wants to remain anonymous about the opposition reaction to the approval of The City Halls decision. “Having over six thousand extra cars does not work and adding more excitement to the community also comes with consequences.”
The Deltas have already comprised their team of 22 players from around the world. Over 300 players came to the tryouts on November 2016. Promising players such as Jonathan Arellano, Adrian Inguez and Julien Melendez were invited to training camp.
The San Francisco Delta are about to play their first game of the season against Indy Eleven on March 25, 2017.
