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 2021 Details
New Soccer Adventure for Club Members
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!
Yes! Spring Season 2021!
Forest Fires Affects Longtime GPSD Leader
Sept. 25, 2020. Long-serving key GPSD Board President Terry Christopher had moved in recent years to Otis on the central Oregon Coast while still contributing his time to our Portland men's league. Tragically, this summer's forest fires came to Otis a couple of weeks ago and Terry's home and possessions weren't spared.
Terry's many friends from a number of GPSD teams have established a gofundme page where our donations will provide a little help to a soccer compadre who's lost nearly everything. Take a look at the gofundme details here.
Brave New World
April 22, 2020. (Still going strong as of 3/24/21!)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.
at 3/25/21: GPSD Board meetings - none scheduled.
