'Nowness / Venice Beach Football Club'
22 May 2023 10 mins 51s
You Cali beat it.
by Andrew MacGregor

LA Galaxy may hog all the headlines, but another team in the City of Angels is making waves: Venice Beach Football Club. Despite competition from basketball, bodybuilding, skating, and surfing, soccer has carved out a successful niche for itself by the Pacific Ocean, with VBFC at the forefront.

Keen to learn more about this boardwalk empire, director Stanley Brock interviews Venetians now hooked on the beautiful game. A teenager says he only has time for homework and soccer, while an older resident thinks a once divided community has found common ground again at Oakwood Park.

This is encapsulated in a young boy's first practice session, where kids swap high-fives and train under the hazy West Coast sun. For those committed to the Estadio De Dogtown (the brilliantly named concrete surface VBFC play on), life is a beach.
