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.


New Soccer Adventure for Club Members

Soccer Tour- Ireland Scotland

July 17, 2020. 
 If you've been reading Club news about the very successful La Paz, Mexico tournament (see the news article below), you're aware that more of us than ever are heading out for soccer destinations/tournaments that provide a cultural experience along with the footy.
   In that spirit, Club Prez Andy Groeneveld has researched and coordinated a new soccer adventure for all Club members to consider.
   In coordination with Cruise and Travel Specialists of Lake Oswego, FC77 can now offer the following::
   "Join your fellow club members as we discover the sights, sounds and soccer history in Ireland and Scotland. In addition to the local attractions found in Ireland and Scotland, our tour will include training sessions with FAI coaches, meet and greets with local players, stadium / pitch tours, a Traditional Irish Sport Experience and a few matches with some of the local teams!"
   The Tour is scheduled to begin September 10, 2021 or, if necessary, early 2022. Organized matches played would be for Over 40 players and older. Trip duration would be 10 days. Pricing posted does not include air fare.
   Take a look at the
details here.

You're Free This Fall

August 7, 2020.  Well, the bad news is official. If your team plays in Portland's GPSD, you have Fall 2020 free for other pursuits. The Fall 2020 season is oficially cancelled.
The GPSD stated, "Amid the recent press release from OSAA regarding high school sports in the state of Oregon, GPSD has decided to follow suit and cancel the Fall 2020 season, for not only the safety of its participants but also since many of our fields are utilized by high school athletics."
Fingers crossed for GPSD Winter 2021!

La Paz Tournament A Big Success!

FC77 represents in La Paz 

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.

Opening Ceremony of Tournament

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


Forest Fires Affects Longtime GPSD Leader

Fire ravages Otis Oregon

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

Virtual Bier Wagon
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.

GPSD Calendar:

10/12/2020:   GPSD Board meeting 6:45pm
11/09/2020:   GPSD Board meeting 6:45pm
 (meetings are currently virtual)
