The 2022 Quakes schedule was announced on December 15.  We’ll have more in January–for now mark February 26 at 3pm and March 5 at 2:30pm on your calendars with the Quakes opening up against the New York Red Bulls and Columbus Crew respectively,

Update 1/11: Our take is here.

Soccer Bay Area has some news regarding Bay Cities FC and they are now part of NISA, filling the void left by the Oakland Roots which opted to join the USL Championship.  The Redwood City club will announce their schedule soon.

Plus, the Oakland Roots will have their practice facility in Alameda, taking over the old Oakland Raiders grounds.  With the place unoccupied by the Raiders moving the Las Vegas the Roots now have a training ground for 2022 and in our personal opinion much needed even if for only that year.
