Swagger Club CA began in our local Carlsbad pub, the Flying Elephant circa 2008. With the pub changing owners a couple years into the meet ups, we were forced to expand and adapt. Our bigger plan of working with all supporters and doing a wider range of viewing events began to come together. The next step was working with pubs in downtown San Diego to the Olde Ship in Orange County. Swagger Club began running buses from San Diego and stopping at our favorite watering holes that truly supported the game and it's fans. The Swagger bus ritual has since turned into a monthly adventure to LA Galaxy, USA and International friendly trips stopping along the way for easy pick ups to the live matches.
The main focus of Swagger is the supporting of supporters no matter what level of play or the club/country they follow. This idea has taken many years to break through established barriers many followers here adapted based on decades old rivalries overseas. We have been able to work with dozens of various supporter groups doing private buses for their early am meet ups or special events at their home bases. The bus trips have been the highlight of the past years with various characters being on board and always a new story to tell after each road trip.
We are proud to have made many great partners in the process and to be working with organizations like LA Galaxy San Diego, NC Battalion, the Olde Ship, Grubbys, US Soccer, LA Galaxy, Two Yanks vs Brits podcast, Chivas USA, Arsenal America, Carlsberg, Liverpool SD, Brits in LA and OC, various pubs all over the country, Oceanside Breakers and Soccer Nation to name a few.
The greatest part of rallying people together for the beautiful game is seeing supporter groups grow after helping or being a small part in the process. We have established the NCounty Americans, NCounty Gooners and work with the San Diego Man Utd, Liverpool SD, Everton, Tottenham, SD Gooners, OC Gooners, Newcastle, Hammers and Man City SD groups.
This is our "FUN" business and the main one is making custom merchandise for bands, sports, clothing companies, businesses, individulas, schools and just about every industry out there through Sparcustoms.com. We have been able to create and produce a lot of supporter gear for the different groups with printing, flags, patches, stickers, embroidery, graphics and more.
Finally, Swagger loves creating unique and varied events for charities, fund raisers or just to have a great time with our friends and associates. Our events have ranged from meet and greets with players, movie premiers, music events, beer tastings, half time waffle eating contests(World Cup USA vs Belgium) and more. We assist people travelling to find a great spot for viewing matches, even when they are at 4:30am here on the West Coast. Discounted game tickets are offered for all the matches possible in the S California area and set up pre game parties to make match day as fun as possible with the various groups.
Thank you for all the support and how big the project has become, we couldn't do it without all of you and love seeing our passion growing so fast in the USA.
