San Diego Boca FC Announces Petition for Soccer Specific Stadium

SAN DIEGO, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- San Diego Boca FC today officially announced that it has posted a petition on their website,, for local residents to support the construction of a professional soccer specific stadium within walking distance of bus and trolley stations serving the San Diego Region for the 2011 Soccer Season.

San Diego Boca FC President and General Manager, Yan Skwara said, "Our organization recognizes the opportunity to promote the cause of providing professional soccer to San Diego County. The popularity of the sport in this region is remarkable, and is currently supported by over 15,000 registered soccer league players. Our next step in moving in the proper direction is to design and build a FIFA regulation soccer specific facility designed for hosting professional soccer matches and youth soccer player development. Too often, professional soccer in the United States is played on fields that are designed for football and other sports, which takes an away from the game significantly, both on the playing side and from the fans' entertainment perspective. We have retained Shapouri & Associates, a leading Engineering and Site Planning firm, to assist with everything from identifying and negotiating the proper location, to site planning for the soccer facility itself. Our vision is a facility that is small and intimate, that can prove out over time and be expandable to higher seating capacity in the future for up to a minimum 18,500 capacity."

Shapouri & Associates CEO, Ali Shapouri stated, "We are excited to be working with San Diego Boca FC as their vision and business model is right on the dime. This is a community based facility that has some positive environmental aspects tied to it as well. Soccer is a natural sport for this region as we have made significant progress over the past few months to making this soccer specific facility a reality. I am convinced that the community needs to support this team and its mission to put professional soccer on the map in San Diego County."
