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.

 

Enjoy The Holidays!

Happy Holidays from FC77.


Tournament Update

Revised Baja Cup Dates 

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."
"They are also proposing some get-acquainted activities for the first two evenings. And then once the tournament is over they're willing to help with activities around the area."
Mike has fourteen FC77 players committed, with a handful of likely additional players known. This is enough for a traveling team, but Mike indicates that a second team can be formed and accomodated in La Paz if there is enough interest.
Now is the time to contact Mike if you are still interested. Inevitably, there will be a few changes to the committed list. See your team manager as to how to contact Mike by way of the Old Nicks club team. Click for Tournament Info.


Meanwhile, On The Eastside...

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

Over 70 WC

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.

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."
