Soccer culture can survive at Fresno State

It seemed like it was too good to be true. One day we’re talking about how the love for soccer – or Futbol – in the Central Valley is growing. Then, it was all gone; no more professional soccer for the city of Fresno and with it, all the progress made in the last couple of years evaporated.

The lack of stadium, that’s what was said to be the catalyst that caused the team to leave Fresno for greener pastures, or fields, on the Central Coast. Neither the city nor the franchise were able to come up with a solution of where to play since the league was forcing all teams to play in soccer-specific stadiums.
