Yup, Kezar for the last two home games, It should be fun.
I am excited about this and just found out about it a week ago. Unfortunately, I will not be able to make the 6-16 game. I will plan on the July 7 one though. Finally a home team to root for! Hopefully old Seals and Victory fans will find thier way there for the last game. This is great news! Since the Seals left PDL I have lost the passion for going to a live contest. Go Stompers! Kezar section Oi !!! Someone call call big Mike Alonso and Delle Alpi. I will Sangrazuel and Mr. Roma of the Seals. It's beginning to feel like 2007 again ;->!!
It has been a fun year so far, watching the team grow from a personnel and individual skill standpoints. Seeing new guys mesh together and become a solid unit. That win over 1st place Sac was a great experience, enhanced by playing in such a great stadium. Can't wait for the next home game, but for now i'll follow them to San Jose and maybe up to the North Coast game.
Last two games at Kezar were great, except the worst officiating I have ever seen vs Sonoma. They basically robbed the Stompers of being able to at least say they beat the top 3 teams in the NW at home. On the road in Phoenix for one last chance at a road result. After that a full off-season to get ready to challenge the league for the 2013 NC!
Did the Stompers manage to pop any kind of decent crowd for this one?
I felt like the first game had roughly 80-120 fans and the second had 60-90 fans, but the second game the crowd was a little rowdier and into the game. The problem is at Kezar 1000 fans will look like a somewhat small turnout. I can't wait for next season.
Is Negoesco off the table? It was being used by the SF Seals when they were in the PDL. Always looked a really nice compact stadium.
I believe they tried to contact the people who run Negoesco before the season and didn't get a response. From what I understand they are going to contact them again.
Given that the Bay Area is a hotbed for talent and the NPSL has had a stranglehold on it since 2008, I've thought it should be the long-term aim of the league office, certainly of the regional office, to find steady ownership that can put a team in every county in the Bay Area. If the Stompers move into the City, that covers four of the nine counties. Teams in the biggest cities in each of the remaining counties - Vallejo, Concord, San Rafael, San Mateo and Napa - would deliver the Bay to a point where the PDL could never get back in.
I've followed the league since it began as the MPSL and I'm not sure the league structure can make it happen.
