The 2019 NPSL Golden Gate Conference has been announced. The major omission is the absence of CD Aguiluchos USA, which was a perennial contender in the region. Stockton and San Ramon have been added to the conference, while the Stompers will now return to Raimondi Park in Oakland.
The season kicks off March 9 with Academica SC hosting Napa Valley on the road at the Central Valley. They hit the road again to Oakland to play the Stompers a week later before their home opener March 30 against El Farolito. The second year outfit will host newcomer Stockton FC at Kezar with a noontime start on March 23.
Farolito will split their schedule between Kezar with 2 games and Boxer for the rest. Their Boxer opener will be on April 13 against Academica.
San Ramon will make their debut with a home match against the Stompers on March 23 at 7pm.
The teams will be on break on May 25 before resuming on June 1.

The Quakes will begin their pre-season camp in Cancun, Mexico. One game is slated to be played there before returning to the US for a 3 game warmup at Reno on February 9, a closed door match against LAFC on February 16, and the traditional pre-season warmup on February 23 against the Seattle Sounders.

From the SF Glens Instagram. Their USL League Two (previously the PDL) schedule will be announced on Wednesday January 30, and that will include the home and home matches against cross town rival SF City–which we can best presume they will announce their season as well.
