Forging Ahead: New Identity with Deep Soccer Roots!
We started out as the El Cerrito Futbol Club in the 1970s. As our soccer community expanded, and more teams formed, we participated with the Tottenham Hotspurs as a youth soccer partner. Affiliation with a pro soccer club out of England no longer made sense as our soccer roots have spread across 16 cities in San Francisco’s East Bay.
The time has come to rebrand — to forge ahead — as a newly formed independent soccer club. We still have the heart and soul of a homegrown soccer community but now with a governing board of directors, managing a robust, year-round soccer program.
The soccer club formerly known as Tottenham Hotspur East Bay (THEB) has become the newly independent Spurs FC. While the name has changed, our commitment to our mission remains constant: to support youth soccer players to achieve their full potential by providing a holistic, integrated program that develops players and coaches and educates parents in a positive, membership-driven community. This holds true across our four programs, which offer opportunities for youth ages 3-18 to play at a level that suits them as individuals, from recreational to competitive.
The new Spurs FC will continue to operate as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, governed by a recently elected parent Board of Directors. As a membership-driven club, input from our community of players, families, and coaches guides our decision-making and plays a vital role in the club’s culture.
Our racially and socioeconomically diverse teams, coaching staff, and leadership speak to our commitment to inclusivity and community.
Welcome to our East Bay soccer family!
