3pointsport (www.3pointsport.com) has always been in the media, whether under this banner or elsewhere.
Of note, we are a non-commercial, not-for-profit, editorial, and independent media/photo site. We report the news for the love of the game and to promote soccer, and any other off-the-trail sports in the San Francisco Bay Area. We contribute material to other sites for no fee, and only to give the sport the best coverage possible in the local area for only an acknowledgement/credit and a link to the posted article.
3pointsport has been posted on other websites and publications including FootySF and the Beautiful Blog at sfgate.com (now Soccer Bay Area). While this site prefers to report the news and post our own material here, we will also collaborate with other sites to promote the game in the Bay Area.
For 2023 our coverage not only includes Major League Soccer (MLS) but also USL League Two and the National Professional Soccer League (NPSL). In addition, the stories include select national team tours and international clubs from around the world with a perspective on the local scene.

With the Roots playing again at the Cal State campus in Hayward for next season and the Soul at Merritt College in Oakland, there is the outside chance the teams could become a tenant for 2025 with the baseball Athletics leaving for Las Vegas. Jon at the Oakland Roots Blog has the take on this developing situation.
An extra for this week–Manchester City on Sunday hosted a viewing party at Pier 70 for their match against Tottenham Hotspur. While the result was a hotly contested draw at 3-3 there were some activities for the kids and adults to partake in, including the FA Cup, Premier League and UEFA Champions League trophies, and the UEFA Super Cup–which pits the best from the Champions League and the Europa League for some hardware.
The tour is part of a three city exhibit with stops in San Francisco, New York, and Washington, DC. Manchester City fans can watch matches at Maggie’s on North Beach, along with Arsenal fans who share the bar with the team.
In addition to the first pick in the 2024 college draft they get the eight pick via trade with Orlando, who will protect a player in the upcoming expansion draft next month. $50,000 in allocation money will also go to the Pride.
The off-season officially begins with Sacramento Republic losing 2-1 to Phoenix Rising in the USL Championship Western Conference Final after leading in the 80th minute. Russell Cicerone gave the home team the lead in the 31st minute but Republic Captain Conor Donovan put the ball into his own net in the 81st minute giving Phoenix a tie. Emil Cuello scored off a balloon kick 2 minutes into the second half of stoppage time to give the win. While a home victory would have given the Capitol to host Charleston Battery on Sunday November 12 at 6pm it will be Phoenix going to South Carolina to complete the Cinderella run.
Kevin from Soccer Bay Area evaluates the Quakes 2023 season and what comes next. Check it out.
The hot stove starts now with the latest news from the Quakes, Roots/Soul/510, USL League Two, NPSL, and the local leagues from now until February 2024. Also stay tuned for any local US Open Cup updates.
In a decision day classic the Quakes play to a 1-1 draw against Austin. Cristian Espinoza gave the Quakes the lead in the 17th minute only for Owen Wolff of Austin to draw even 15 minutes later.
A win would have given them a straight path to the MLS Cup playoffs while a tie would have meant other results going their way. With Sporting KC and Dallas winning a Portland victory would have meant elimination.
With the Timbers loss that means the Quakes get a playoff spot with Sporting Kansas City hosting the Wild Card game on Wednesday October 25 at 6:30pm. A win will mean playing top ranked St. Louis.
