Despite the fact the Birmingham Hammers do not currently belong to any league, they are poised to begin their 2015 campaign May 9th against Nashville FC (NPSL).  The Hammers were founded in 2013 with the goal of bringing professional soccer to Birmingham, or Magic City as it is affectionately known.  Despite being league-less, the team has an impressive exhibition schedule this year.  The Hammers will face off against several NPSL and PDL teams from the region including: Nashville FC, MS Brilla, and the Knoxville Force.  Buzz in the Magic City has been remarkable, and the team has an independent supporters group, known as the Magic City Brigade (MCB), that started in the team’s infancy.   MCB founder Forrest Collins provided some insight into the creation of the supporters group and his hopes for his crew and his team moving forward.   Read more

Non League America Vol. 1: SF City FC US Open Cup

Non League America Vol. 1: SF City FC US Open Cup

The Non League America team was out in San Francisco last week for the historic preliminary round match between supporter owned San Francisco City FC representing US Club Soccer and the re-assembled Wynalda led Open Cup legends Cal FC representing USASA Region IV.  The match posted a record preliminary round attendance of 1519.  We caught up with some of the supporter owners and the head coach, and were treated to a truly exceptional halftime honorarium for all the past San Francisco US Open Cup championship teams, many from the “long lost dark ages” (Pre 1996 MLS entry) when local ethnic based USASA affiliated clubs offered the highest level of competitive football in the United States.  We love to see this kind of reverence for history, and hope to uncover additional historical connections as we investigate the lower division landscape.   Thanks to Evan Ream for the great work.  Check him out on twitter @EvanReam.

Supporters Section: The Vanguard

Supporters Section: The Vanguard

The Pacific Northwest is known for its rabid soccer support.  The support is seemingly ingrained within the numerous hipster subcultures that seem to grow like fungus out of the crisp dew grass.  (Not an insult, I swear.  If anyone has a spare couch, let me know – I am jealous).  Bryan_Speaks had the opportunity to chat with one of the most passionate group of supporters from the area – and not the Timbers Army.  Bryan spoke with the Vancouver Victory’s supporter group, The Vanguard of the Evergreen Premier League.  The Vanguard are a close knit group who are known for their undying passion.  These supporters, still in their infancy, are looking for more members who will stand proud and sing loud in their second season in the EPLWA which kicks off April 25th.
