Grand Reopening of FC Riverside County (Saturday, January 14, 2023)

FC Riverside County is excited to reopen and serve our community with fantastic soccer and football. As an organization, we had to make the hard choice of temporarily closing our doors recently. It was not an easy choice. Challenges from inflation, staffing issues, and increased regulations from our governments pushed FC Riverside County into this closure. Inflation has caused an increase of as much as 3 times more for some areas of our business. Staffing has continued to be an issue for FC Riverside County. Any pay increases would require us to increase the cost of services by as much as 30%. Coupled with government regulations, our cost of operation at FC Riverside County has continued to grow.

Under New Management

Join our new and improved community.

Over the last weeks, FC Riverside County has been working hard to reorganize itself to better fit today’s challenges. We are confident our new organization will be able to better serve you. Our first change is introducing General Managers to represent each program. Previously, each program had a Director with a limited scope of tasks. Now, our General Managers will be available to provide you with an even more dedicated service. At the same time, our General Managers will be given more decision-making roles. For these reasons, we are immediately dissolving our Commissioner position. Each General Manager will have a dedicated phone line available. General Managers will be readily available to manage their respective program.

FC Riverside County would like to thank Crossroads for its partnership. Beyond providing FC Riverside County with a world-class facility, Crossroads has been gracious in working with FC Riverside County since our founding. FC Riverside County is grateful for Crossroad’s continued support.

We are reopening our youth soccer program and adult soccer leagues immediately. Each service will be unchanged. Read below to view our program schedule:
