Dave Mildrew, So Cal Blues Executive Director said, “As most everyone familiar with the So Cal Blues knows, we have remained fiercely independent as a club when club consolidation seems to be the norm in youth soccer.
“At the same time, we recognize and appreciate the value that can be achieved when two great clubs work together on common initiatives that will benefit both organizations,” said Mildrew. “We’ve carefully studied F.C. Golden State and believe our two organizations represent the best in youth soccer and we are excited to be entering into this strategic alliance with them”.
F.C. Golden State is proud to have So Cal Blues as partners and excited about helping enhance the soccer landscape in Southern California for all girls and boys. The opportunities for all kids to achieve their potential and maximize the opportunities with the pooled resources of our two great clubs make this a great alliance!
