Who We Are
The Fog City Faithful are an official regional ECS subgroup of Bay Area/NorCal Seattle Sounders FC supporters who meet during the MLS season to watch games at local bars and share our love of the team. In addition to meeting for TV viewings we also host the ECS pre-funk parties for SJ away matches! Our group has grown from a handful in 2009 to about 50 members in 2013! Up the Sounders, and up the ECS! #EBFG
Fog City Faithful started as Bay Area Sounders Supporters by Daniel Lee who had relocated to the California for work. The group was pretty small until 2012 season when more Sounders fans relocated to the area and got active. We voted to change our group name to Fog City Faithful in 2013 at the same time that we became an official ECS subgroup.
What We Do
FCF is first and foremost a soccer (futbol) supporters group. In addition to viewing Sounders matches and hosting local away matches, we also come together for two-pole parties and other soccer related goodness. In 2013 we are planning a regular podcast for soccer-minded listeners as well as producing a FCF scarf for sale during the upcoming season. Many of our members have also organized trips to LA/Seattle/RSL to watch the Sounders together.
How To Join
You can find join the Fog City Faithful Facebook page to keep up to date with our viewing events and meet other local Sounders faithful.
