The future will also include growing rivalries with NorCal neighbors Sacramento Republic FC and Oakland Roots SC. Both claim Monterey his bay was victorious in the first year.

He said, “I also know the coaches and clubs in Oakland and Sacramento very well, so we should get one for each other. [next season], but that’s a good thing. Obviously, they beat us and we beat them, so next season can really kick it off.
Beyond the passionate rivalry, Monterey Bay’s bigger goal is to earn a first trip to the playoffs. I have no illusions.
“We have to come out victorious,” said Yallop. “We have a lot of work to do to make the playoffs, but the goal is to make the playoffs. Every team says so, and we are no different.
“Now hopefully we can have more consistent performance and more consistent results. want to see”
