Women’s World Cup watch party

News

Today Strummers held a watch party for the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team Semi-Final match against England. 

It was a packed house and fans were eagerly watching.

Brandon Duenas is the General Managers for Strummers. He said airing the soccer games has helped their business grow.

“We definitely notice a lot of new faces,” said Duenas. “We just see a good variety of people who come out that we typically don’t see.” 

Logan Pattie is a soccer player for Fresno Pacific. She said this World Cup has been very exciting. 

“It’s really exciting because obviously since I play I know all of the hard work that goes into it,” said Pattie. “They deserve every bit of it.” 

Vanessa Casillas formally played soccer for Fresno Pacific. She said it’s really fun to see professionals compete at their level.

“It’s really exciting for us girls in soccer to see all these people just doing awesome things across the world,” said Casillas. 

Fresno FC helped put this watch party on.

Jesse Beltran is the Marketing Director for Fresno FC. He said hopefully with the fans excited about the World Cup, it will bring the eager fans downtown to watch the Valley’s minor league soccer team. 

“It’s been a good World Cup so far,” said Beltran. “So, we just want to get everyone pumped about soccer in the valley.”

The U.S. Women’s team beat England 2 – 1. Now, the women wait to play in the World Cup finals on July 7th.
