It has been a month since the inaugural #GrowTheGame weekend and already we are seeing the benefits of this event with a spin-off forum being organized by SoccerNation.com to be hosted tomorrow at 8pm PST.
The ‘Future of San Diego Soccer’ Forum held at the San Diego Hall of Champions was the catalyst for clubs from across the city to come together under one roof and discuss how to create a stronger future for the game.
The meeting will see the Presidents of the Presidio Soccer League come together with representatives of the NPSL, WPSL and PASL to discuss how the semi-pro teams of San Diego can work together with the cities competitive youth soccer clubs to help get more fans to games.
The topic for the forum was the product of similar conversations at the #GrowTheGame Forum and built on the consensus that soccer in San Diego will benefit from new partnerships between the junior and senior clubs.
The Presidio Soccer League is San Diego’s Premier Competitive Youth Soccer Gaming League, serving the Southern California area. They are a member run organization and currently serve over 50 youth soccer leagues and approximately 18,000 players.
When: Tuesday May 15 @ 8 PM PST
Where: Del Mar Marriott
The panelists for the forum are a great cross section of the San Diego Soccer Community including coaches, former international players, commentators and journalists and include;
Warren Barton – Current San Diego Flash Head Coach, Fox Soccer Analyst and a former England International and Newcastle United defender.
Joe Tutino – Joe is the Marketing Director of the San Diego Sockers and for many years has been the radio voice of the L.A. Galaxy.
Diane Scavuzzo – Diane is the Editor in Chief of Soccer Nation (www.soccernation.com), Southern California’s leading news source for all things soccer and will act as the moderator for the event.
The panelists will be on hand to provide their unique insights on the subject matter through their knowledge and experience of the game and will no doubt provide clubs with ideas they can take back and implement in their clubs and communities.
Can’t make it to the forum or live outside of San Diego? No problem. Part of the #GrowTheGame philosophy is that if you have ideas to share on the future of the game then we still want to hear them!
