When it comes to U.S. national outdoor soccer teams, the South Bay is already home to all but the Under-17 boys national team program (that has its HQ in Bradenton, Fla.), based at the National Training Center at Home Depot Center in Carson.

Now the U.S. Futsal National Team has relocated from Milwaukee, Wisc., to Torrance all because of the presence of what is believed to be the finest indoor soccer facility in the nation, two-year-old South Coast Soccer City.

The futsal team just opened its first camp in two years in preparation for the CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers.

Here’s more in a story I wrote today for the Daily Breeze.

    Great to see soccer city get recognised. See local boys make national team is very cool. Maybe they should have had open tryouts for other local boys. Give soccer nuts something to look up to.Hope they do well in Brazil. Good article Nick. JV.

    Keep an eye on Lucas Stauffer, at 16 the youngest – and maybe the smallest – member of the team. This kid can move.
