SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–San Francisco’s community celebration “Cinco de Mayo Soccer Fest,” is a great combination of Family Fun and “Futbol.” The California Victory, the new United Soccer League’s Division One team in San Francisco, takes on Necaxa 1A, a professional soccer team from Aguas Caliente, Mexico during “Cinco de Mayo Soccer Fest.”
The Cinco de Mayo festivities at Kezar Stadium are 11 a.m-5 p.m. with the game starting at 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 5. The California Victory will conduct a special soccer clinic prior to the game. Kezar Stadium, the field of champions, where the San Francisco 49’ers and the Oakland Raiders got their start, is located at 755 Stanyan Street in the Southeastern corner of Golden Gate Park. Head Coach, Glenn Van Stratum, and Assistant Coach, Hugo Perez lead the Victory.
Mayor Newsom and members of the Board of Supervisors have been invited to kickoff the festivities with a ribbon cutting ceremony marking the California Victory’s first game at Kezar Stadium. “We’ve joined with the community to create the Cinco de Mayo Soccer Fest,” said Terry Fisher, General Manager of the California Victory. “We are looking forward to people coming out to enjoy great food and entertainment. We want people to know the California Victory is their home town team and we’re not moving anywhere.”
It’s an event that is worth a commute to the Bay Area. Before and after the game that involves Mexico, which is historically tied to Cinco de Mayo, community organizers will cook up a great time! La Familia (the family) can enjoy fiery mariachi, mesmerizing Aztec dancers; baile folkloric, captivating drum beats, tantalizing canto de ninos, enchanting cha cha and magnificent descarga; and habañero hot hip-hop. Fun begins at 11 a.m.
