    I’m so psyched for this team!  They’ll be a great addition to West Seattle and the soccer community in this region.  I was (am) a huge Ballard FC fan, the games are so fun, accessible great soccer.  I always had wished I had a more local team to root for though so WSJFC I’m sure y’all will steal my heart and fandom!  Looking forward to the first match!

    My question is what will our song and chants be for our team? Excited for this!

    But will there be a beer garden? Doesn’t sound like it. I’m so proud to have a new local team, but I fear Ballard is going to kick out butts, both on the field on off. They are so far ahead of us with branding, marketing, and community support. Ryan
