Road to Nationals: Support the UCSD Men's Club Soccer Team
Thank you for your interest in supporting the University of California, San Diego Men's Club Soccer Team!
Who We Are
We are a competitive club soccer team that represents UCSD against other club soccer teams across the nation. This past 2017-2018 season, our team experienced the most success we have ever had as both undefeated Fall and Spring League Champions, Regional Champions, and NIRSA Nationals Consolation Champions. We traveled to many schools around San Diego, California and Los Angeles, California. Thankfully we were able to attend Regionals in San Luis Obispo, California and Nationals in Phoenix, Arizona. Our team is relatively new as it has been around for about ten years now, but it will no longer exist after this year if we do not do something to save the club.
Why We Need Your Help
As a team we are required to pay out of our own pockets for referees, balls, fields, travel, and housing for overnight games and tournaments. These fees are paid for by the players on the team, but as college students we are all struggling to provide the funds by ourselves. Last year we had to cancel our annual trip to Northern California to play against teams such as UC Berkeley, San Jose State and Stanford, and we currently are going to have to cancel again this year. We no longer have enough soccer balls due to the inability to recover balls that were kicked into a construction zone by our field. We no longer are going to be receiving funding from the University.
Ultimately, we plan on competing at Regionals in San Luis Obispo, CA and Nationals in Foley, Alabama this year to defend our titles, but that will not happen if we cannot cover the costs.
Our team is more than just a soccer team. We are family. When you first come to UCSD it is overwhelming, but our team is a way for you to find a place where you are welcome, comfortable, and supported. We want to continue providing assistance to both new and returning students through our team which is why your contribution is so valuable to us.
Thank you so much for your support. Without you, our team would not be returning to UCSD this coming 2018-2019 season.
