After the great earthquake of 1906, San Francisco city leaders decided that to lift the spirits of its citizens they would provide funding to build a soccer stadium in what is now Golden Gate Park called Bay State Park. The team started play in 1907 and provided a much-needed escape from the rebuilding efforts.
The team's logo originally was simply a trolley car from the front. 2 major events changed their identity forever: In 1937 the newly completed Golden Gate Bridge was added to the clubs badge, and in 1994 it was announced they'd leave their longtime home and move to the Presidio in a new stadium. This decision was with much controversy as the BSP was beloved by fans of the team and all around the league. There were a variety of "Save BSP" rallies (some at rival stadiums!) but in the end they still moved to their new state of the art stadium in 1996.
They have been mostly an America One team, but have played in Premier and America Two in their existence.
The team's popularity has allowed them to keep a top sponsor like Apple. The rest of their uniforms are very unique in that they feature tonal images of San Francisco vistas on each side, 4 different images in all. The orange color is the exact shade as the Golden Gate Bridge.
