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.
October 2, 2019. Plans for the La Paz Tournament
are firming up nicely. Regarding our Baja soccer counterparts, organizer
Mike Calder reports, "They are suggesting the [Over
60]tournament be played on the first full weekend of March 2020. They're
proposing one game Friday March 6, two games on Saturday March 7 and one
game on Sunday, March 8. I am sure we can suggest changes if we want."

August 17, 2019. As warring political mobs made downtown Portland a bit problematic on Saturday, a smaller mob with an interest in potlucks and kick-arounds gathered at Glenhaven Park for the 2019 edition of the famed FC77 Athletic Cup.

Local Boys Make Good
Osaka, Japan, Oct. 23, 2019. Old Nicks teammates John Mayfield and Kim Bergenser, as part of NC United, win the 70+ World Cup club championship tournament beating the Danish Roskilde FC in the final. Kim has long been part of a Denmark-North Carolina hybrid traveling team currently comprised of seventy year old footballers. John likes to spend the fall season somewhere in Asia, so he joined Kim's team for the tournament. Congrats to both for peaking their careers at just the right moment.
Trouble In River City
October 18, 2019. Most of us FC77'ers are also Portland
Timbers supporters. Many of us who attend games noticed this
summer the mid-season tension between the Timbers Army
and the MLS organization. Purposeful crowd silences;
lack of banners, and lots of Iron Front t-shirts were just symptoms of a
complex type of idea clash happening.
