Major League Soccer is Coming to San Diego!\n"Oceanside is proud to welcome 1904 FC," Councilman Jerry Kern said at a news conference.\n\nOfficials with San Diego's new professional soccer team announced plans to build a roughly 10,000-seat stadium at El Corazon Park in Oceanside. The playing facility for 1904 Football Club will be at the SoCal Sports Complex at the park, which provides fields for soccer, rugby and lacrosse near Oceanside Boulevard and Rancho del Oro Drive. The club derived its name, 1904, from the position in the alphabet of the first letters of San Diego. \n\n"El Corazon Park has quickly become a soccer destination and adding professional soccer to the mix is a very big deal for the park and the city," Kern said. "This team will draw fans from all over the world to our corner of the globe."\nThe team hopes to begin to play in March in the North American Soccer League.\n\nThe club's owners, according to the team website, are Bob Watkins, chairman of the U.S. Rugby Foundation; Alexandre Gontran, a French coach credited with developing Ba; and Vagno Chandara, a Parisian former professional player in futsal, a soccer variant. The club plans to play at the University of San Diego's Torero Stadium until the Oceanside facility opens, expected in two years.
