Created by Arnaud Auger, the club of the Supporters of the France National Soccer Team in San Francisco is back at organizing game-watching sessions in San Francisco. A special event will take place on June 23 to watch the Euro 2021 France vs Portugal.
In 2016, Arnaud could not find any good spots in San Francisco to follow the Euro final 2016. He decided to create The France National Soccer Team Fan Club in San Francisco. His one and only objective is to bring together the French, Francophone, and Francophile communities in order to live the game of the French Team: “Being together with French supporters on the other side of the world, together to sing the French National Anthem, to vibrate together, is even more magical, it brings us together, it creates a bond and it makes us feel even better in San Francisco having the best of both worlds. Soccer is only an excuse for communion and sharing ” explains Arnaud.
He gathered 2,000 people in 2018 for the men’s world cup. Those who were there remember it! This year, here is how you can watch the games:
- OUTDOOR => a larger outdoor location to watch sports games in San Francisco! Capacity 500 people
- Giant screens, quality sound. In agreement with the manager of the place, this time will be dedicated only to this game!!
Bonus: the organizers have obtained the agreement to have French food trucks selling their products at Soma StreEat Food Park during the game. Do not hesitate to contact Arnaud by direct message on Facebook if you are interested to participate with your food truck.
This initiative does not bring any financial benefit and is organized with the simple aim of meeting and sharing fantastic experiences around the “Bleus”.
Free entry to the event and it is obviously encouraged to support the French businesses that will be present. The objective is to convince the location manager to continue hosting more vibrant games!
Meet on June 23rd, 2021 at District Six (ex Soma StrEat Food Park) at 11:30am San Francisco time to sing the Marseillaise!
Address: 428 11th Street, San Francisco
