We love San Antonio. For us it’s so much more than where we live. It’s our place of birth. Or the place we got to as quick as we could. It’s where we went to school. It’s where we met the best friends of our lives. It’s the Spurs. It’s FIESTA. It’s the Alamo & the Riverwalk. It’s Puro. It’s music festivals, the McNay & the Wittie. It’s delicious breakfast tacos and chicken on a stick. It’s all the margaritas you could handle. Es nuestra cultura diversa. It’s home.
When we first started the MLS in SA idea, it was a belief and a dream. A belief our city could be as great as any in America. While that can mean many different things to many different people – for us – it’s always meant more major sports. For far too long San Antonians have been forced to root for the teams of other cities’ and to travel long distances to see any sport other than basketball on the big stage. Our feeling has always been – the 7th biggest city in the country is better than that. We deserve to have our own teams, right here in our city. And for us in particular, that dream has centered around our love of The Beautiful Game. Football. Futbol. Soccer.
San Antonio has come so very far in just a few years. From the Scorpions and an NASL Championship to San Antonio FC and USL. From the building of our crown jewel soccer specific stadium Toyota Field to USWNT friendlies at the Alamodome. From the women of San Antonio Athenians to World Cup watch parties with hundreds of attendees. From a Dos A Cero USA/Mexico match to the Gold Cup arriving in July 2017. San Antonio has proven over and over again that we are a soccer city and we are finally ready for the next major sports franchise to call San Antonio home.
With Spurs Sports and Entertainment’s commitment to soccer in San Antonio, the creation of San Antonio FC, and most recently, a formal bid submitted to MLS for the next round of expansion, San Antonio has never been closer to making this dream a reality than right now, today. We need your support now more than ever before.
