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.

 

Soccer World On Hold

Corona scores early 

March 30, 2020.  Yep, it's all shut down. Premier League, MLS and GPSD - all the elite leagues are in suspended animation for an indefinite period. It's all been Corona'd. GPSD's initial match cancellation directive runs to April 8th, but the GPSD board is meeting today to decide whether to schedule an abbreviated spring session, beginning in May. The idea of pushing the Spring Season into the summer months has been rejected. The very real possibility is that everything is cancelled until fall.
Your team manager will keep you up on developments.


La Paz Tournament A Big Success!

FC77 represents in La Paz 

March 20, 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 according to Mike. He and Mary Anne are staying on for another three weeks or so.

Opening Ceremony of Tournament

Thanks to Old Nick's Richard and Tammy Black, you can vicariously experience the tournament through their excellent picture-taking.

Old School Soccer
The English Game on etflix

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.

Rangers are Champions of Over 30, 3rd. 

July 1, 2019.  We'll let Manager Sean Ingersoll tell the tale:
"The final score was 3-1. Centennial FC had pipped us twice this season, 1-2 each time, so we knew it was going to be another competitive match. It had been 11 years since Rangers hoisted a trophy so we really, really wanted it.

CFC scored around the 38th minute on a great solo effort, but we kept the plot and huddled up at half time. My head is still a bit of a blur, but I seem to think my team talk went something along the lines, “There is no reason to panic. We’re playing good soccer. We’re going to score once early on in the second half to tie it up. And then we score again late to win this f**king thing!” (I swear a lot during team talks.)

Kyle Dunscomb got the equalizer in the 65th minute off a cross from the right side. It was like an adrenaline shot to the heart and we really started putting the pressure on after that.

Noah Sharpsteen, who had been playing holding midfielder all game, asked to go up front and do a shift as a striker. Five minutes later he took on their center backs and blasted the sh*t out of the ball to rocket it in near post around the 75th minute. Our fans, some two dozen or so and most of them wearing yellow, went wild.

Ahmed Hamlawy netted the third with eight minutes remaining. Ahmed finished the season with a Rangers record 18 goals and 5-6 assists."

And that trophy in the picture? "I promised my crew a proper trophy hoist if we managed to pull off a win…but the Over 30 Third division doesn’t have a trophy. A few years ago Mike Calder gave me the trophy you see in the picture but we came up short then…so I’ve had this thing in my garage since maybe 2016 or 2017. I refused to touch it until this Saturday so when the final whistle blew, my wife ran out to the car and brought it out to the field. Rangers got a proper trophy hoist."
