Welcome to the home of Football Club 77, a men's soccer club devoted to the enjoyment of soccer. FC77 was formed in 1977 in Portland Oregon. Over 39 years later this miscellaneous collection of soccer buffs has grown into seven teams.
Our purpose: Playing and supporting the sport of soccer and good fellowship. Our seven teams span Over 30 through Over 58 age divisions and a wide range of play from the serious, to the ridiculous. On these pages you'll find separate team pages, schedules, game reviews, other soccer links, information if you're interested in trying out for a team and our newsletter. Explore and if you enjoy soccer, you're among friends.
Spring Season 2020 - It's Done
April 14, 2020. The GPSD has decided that it
must end the Spring 2020 Season,
effective immediately. A number of factors led to this decision,
including player safety and the availability of referees and playing
fields in the next few months under social distancing rules.
La Paz Tournament A Big Success!
April 12, 2020. Thanks in large part to organizer Mike Calder and the cordial cooperation of La Asociación Sudcaliforniana de Futbol (ASFA) (our La Paz counterparts) the La Paz Tournament was a very enjoyable experience for all players and significant others who made the journey. The last FC77 stragglers pulled out of Baja on March 17th. Mike and Mary Anne are now back home in Portland.
Thanks to Old Nick's Richard and Tammy Black, you can vicariously experience the tournament through their excellent picture-taking.
For those who think web sites and even blogs are hopelessly old fashioned, your Club also has a FC77 Facebook page. Mark Zuckerberg will be so pleased!

Brave New World
April 22, 2020. It's not known at this point if they're the first FC77 team to do it, but Old Nicks now provides a virtual replacement for the cherished "Bier Wagon" post-game gathering using the Zoom meeting app. Wednesday evenings the team coalesces round their communication devices; cracks open beverages, and forgets for a moment about our social isolation. Pretty impressive for the old-guy team of the Club! Many thanks to Glenn Fithian-Barrett of Old Nicks for making this happen.
Old School Soccer
March 30, 2020. As we mope about our homes, waiting for the virus all-clear, we need our soccer fix. This month, the Timbers have been rebroadcasting past matches on FOX 12 on Sundays at 3 pm.
The streaming services can provide some relief in the form of soccer-related content. The most recent is Netflix's dramatic 6-part mini series called The English Game. The setting is late 1870's England and we are watching football go from a gentleman's team sport to the sport of the working class. Worth a look.
