SAN DIEGO (October 18, 2017) — The region’s newest professional sports organization proudly announced today that it will officially be known as 1904 Football Club. Along with a description of the club name’s origin, the team unveiled a brand video to share their story.
1904 // A name inspired for and by the people of its representative city. A fellow supporter and most importantly, a San Diegan, suggested 1904, deriving from S, the 19th letter of the alphabet, paired with D, the 4th letter, making 1904 an iconic name for San Diego soccer. From the start, this team has been deeply rooted in its interest and appeal to the street culture here, making Nineteen O’Four and the many variations of this name absolutely fitting. Finally, we have chosen to use Football Club because of what we're steadily moving towards, to bring San Diego football and its valued players to the world.
Colors/Logo // 1904 FC’s colors are as simple as the game itself. A game where one team must score just one more goal than the other. Black and white also represent both the darkness (challenges) of sports and the light (victory). The telescope represents the club’s long-term vision and commitment to the region, along with its goal of developing local football talent and helping young players achieve their dreams of playing international soccer. It also symbolizes the club’s connection to the city’s long-standing commitment, described as Semper Vigilans, which means ever vigilant, on the city seal.

Project could expose San Diego to massive financial risks and offer few of the benefits claimed in report.
SAN DIEGO (September 21, 2017) – Leading business economist Dr. Lynn Reaser released an independent analysis today of the City of San Diego’s feasibility study for a government-controlled energy program that determined the city’s study is flawed, lacks critical information, and reaches a conclusion not supported by the facts.
“The feasibility study’s finding that a CCA (Community Choice Aggregator) would be ‘feasible’ is at best a weak endorsement, especially in light of the number of risks regarding both its benefits and costs,” Dr. Reaser’s analysis says. “Our analysis finds that even this conclusion of feasibility cannot be supported on the basis of the 803-page study.”
“Given the sizeable financial risks associated with the many uncertainties involved in a CCA, the city should wait, or work with the local utility on potential alternatives that avoid incurring such serious financial jeopardy."
Group aims to ensure costs and benefits of Climate Action programs are fully understood before critical decisions are made.
SAN DIEGO (September 14, 2017) – A new coalition, Clear the Air, has been formed to urge the City of San Diego to achieve its ambitious Climate Action goals in a cost-effective manner that benefits our environment, stimulates the economy and protects local families and businesses. The City’s consideration of a government-run energy program, or Community Choice Aggregation (CCA), is the first major opportunity to ensure costs and benefits are fully considered before critical climate decisions are made.
“The City of San Diego’s unanimous passage of a landmark Climate Action Plan is something we can all be proud of,” said coalition member Ruben Barrales, President of the Latino Leadership & Policy Forum. “It’s now time to build on that collaborative effort and have a robust discussion that helps achieve our climate goals in a way that benefits all San Diegans.”
