The 2016 SF Evolution Cup Schedule is now complete and there will be no more changes as we move on to other business of the coming weekend.
Below you will learn about check-in, parking, weather and some of the things available at each game site. Please remember that you are coming to a big city....do not leave your soccer bags(or anything) in plain view inside your car as smash and grabs are an everyday occurrence here.
1) Final Schedules: Please click here.
2) Team Check in: We will host an optional Friday night check in at our club office, located at 1500 Geneva Ave, SF CA 94112. We expect mostly local teams to show up and help us get some of this completed before the games begin. ALL other teams who do not check in on Friday will check in at the Field where they play their 1st game. Teams should arrive a minimum of 1 hour before the first game on Saturday. Only the Manager or coach is needed with the passes and roster (US CLUB or CYSA Goldenrod, or AYSO). PLEASE COMPLETE YOUR ROSTER FOR THIS EVENT ON GOTSOCCER- THIS IS WHAT WE USE TO POPULATE THE GAME CARDS. (please complete this by Wednesday evening).
3) Weather: The weather report is calling for sun over the weekend and low 70's. Well, if you have ever been to San Francisco....never go anywhere without a jacket handy- it is known to get cold and windy rather quickly.
4) Things to know about the facility you are at:
Crocker Amazon: 5 artificial turf fields which has 2 parking lots which fill up fast! Please avoid parking on the dirt which is super tempting as it looks safe and legal...but it is NOT! You will get a ticket and never want to come back. We have our Tournament Merchandise for sale here from A Fine Design Co.(custom shirts and hoodies). Food at this location is served by the building which has a walk up window and the specialty served here are Papusas (yum). Service here is sometimes slow so allow for time or you may be frustrated. Also, be mindful that you are in a big city and keep an eye on all of your items. Do not leave cell phones, etc unattended. This location also has random people who walk around and recycle your water bottles- they are not tournament staff, but have become part of the landscape at this location.
South Sunset: 3 smaller artificial turf fields near the zoo on 41st Ave & Wawona Street. Parents will watch the games from the outer sidelines of field 1 and 3 and squeeze in on field 2. No food will be served at this location, but one of our tournament sponsors is located around the corner: Java Beach> A great place to order coffee and bagels in the morning to gourmet signature sandwiches.
West Sunset: 2 Grass Fields. No food located here, but you will have a great view of the ocean on a sunny day!
Beach Chalet: 8 smaller fields artificial turf. This is the crown jewel in San Francisco right now! You will love this location and all it offers. A fine Design Co (tournament merchandise), Food, built in restaurant accessible by a path, and a photographer who will have some creative ideas for your team and players. Parking here could be a challenge in the small lot. It is best to park outside the lot and walk in. You can even park at the beach and walk in from the back of the complex.
Polo Fields: 6 Full size Grass Fields. Be careful where you park as this place is hard to tell if it is illegal or not? You should be ok parking around the complex, but stay off grass areas which will certainly land you a ticket. This complex has 2 main tunnel entrances on the south and North sides, but is also accessible from the west side. Here you will have A Fine Design (Tournament Merchandise), Food, Smoothies, etc.
Treasure Island: We are excited to host for the 1st time at this location! 3 Grass Fields. Food should be available as well as smoothie patrol. Dramatic views of the city are discovered from the Island while you watch soccer from the middle of the Bay sitting between SF & Oakland.
Pollicita: 1 Turf Field. This field is located in Daly City at 550 E Market St. For parking> go around the school and onto Orange St where the parking lot is. No amenities at this location, Just soccer!
We look forward to seeing you this weekend for a fabulous Memorial Day Weekend in SF!
