Bay Area Soccer: Colleges start season, Contra Costa FC joins NPSL, Oakland Soccer adds teams, NSL Pacific adds Salinas
Also, the Quakes add another player from the South American ranks with the signing of defender Luciano Abecasis. A protege of coach Matias Almeyda through the Argentine league Abecasis fills in a defensive void left by the departure of Nick Lima to Austin FC.
Players are scheduled to report on March 1, with training camp to commence a week later on March 8. The Quakes will begin their 2021 campaign on April 16 with their schedule to be announced in the coming weeks.
The Earthquakes stadium may end up getting a sponsor again. As of last year before the Covid-19 Pandemic the venue was left without a name when Avaya filed for bankruptcy and the 10 year deal that started in 2015 was terminated. The rumored name as of post will be PayPal Park–the company already has the jersey rights for the Phoenix Suns baskeball club.
Yes, our other good buddies at Quakesfan have some deets on the upcoming season. Two for one with their take on Eric Remedi.
