Real San Jose Soccer Club

Real San Jose announced today that it is joined the westward expansion of the National Soccer League (NSL) as an inaugural member of the Pacific conference. RSJ will compete in the CA North division. The league's "club's first" philosophy is the reason for the move. The NSL provides top-class amateur clubs with a low-cost platform packed with features and benefits. The step promises to make RSJ a more energetic club for members and fans.

"Everything about the NSL helps clubs maintain stability, and a key factor is a comparatively low cost to participate in a National League," said RSJ manager Nick Arellano. The lower annual fees are a great benefit to clubs. Many clubs get frustrated with the high costs of membership and player registration. As a result, the NSL has lowered these costs to approximately 30% of other national leagues; therefore, clubs will have more money to invest in local needs. Not only is the price more reasonable, but it comes packed with features.

A significant portion of the Pacific Conference's annual membership fee comes directly back to clubs. This "club first" approach is excellent. Each club receives game balls, stadium banner, league patches, a website, and 22 player registrations. The move to the new league has real benefits.

While the features of Pacific conference membership are many, it is the overall benefits that led RSJ to make a move. This approach is an essential "club first" philosophy. Perhaps the most crucial advantage is that the members of the league have agreed to work together to generate and share division-wide sponsorship. For example, the clubs will share revenue generated from stadium banners, website advertising, game streaming, and whatever else comes up. There is finally a national league that puts "clubs first," and RSJ is excited to participate.

By joining the Pacific Conference of the NSL, RSJ has partnered with the top clubs in the Bay Area to bring soccer fans a great amateur soccer experience. The league's "club's first" philosophy is the reason. RSJ will benefit significantly from the comprehensive approach of lower cost, increased features, and revenue-generating opportunities.

"I know, having experienced amateur soccer at the national level since 2007, that the "club first" philosophy is the only way to go forward. I hope other top clubs explore the possibility of joining us," said Arellano.

Real San Jose fell 1-0 to JASA on November 23, 2019, at Red Morton Park in Redwood City, thus ending the UPSL Fall Season in last place in the West West Red Division. The only goal of the match came off a corner kick in the 75th minute.

Noe Olivo and Miles Monroe all had strong performances in the RSJ defense. Cesar Prado and goalkeeper Julian Escobar each made their RSJ debuts. Omololu Ajao made a brief debut going out injured in the opening minutes. Unfortunately, a strong defensive performance was all RSJ could provide once again as the offensive was shutout again.

Real San Jose failed to provide the big performance that was required to stay alive in the Wild West playoff race and fell 4-0 to San Leandro United on November 16 at PAL Stadium. It was a disappointing loss, to say the least. RSJ struggled all season to mount a consistent attack and it was even worse than normal on this night. On the other end, San Leandro put their chances away and moved into playoff position.

Real San Jose had an important road result insight but ultimately fell 2-0 to Pajaro Vally on November 10. RSJ was short-handed as a few key players were unavailable. Defensive star Alex Kaster missed his first minutes of the season with an injury and missing Juan Torres and Eddie Guerro forced other lineup adjustments. Still, RSJ stayed in the match until the final five minutes when both PVU goals were scored. Cesar Burrell, Danny Corrall, Miles Monroe, and goalkeeper Jonathan Arellano all had outstanding performances.
