With humble beginnings in the Lococo family garage in 1997, soccerloco has grown into a brand that represents our passion for the beautiful game.

We share this love with our employees, our customers, and our partners. Anyone who has ever played that pass, controlled that ball, or finished that goal knows the feeling we can only describe as soccerloco. The thrill of victory and the gall of defeat are what inspire us to approach every day with the determination to be better than we were the previous day.

Since those early days, we at soccerloco have grown into the top destination for those looking for premium soccer cleats, jerseys, apparel and equipment. We proudly carry all of soccer’s top brands and dominate the opposition in offering our customers the best variety of carefully curated soccer gear on the market, both online and in-store.

Over the last 20 years, we’ve witnessed the growth of the game all around us. From Deschamps’ and Zidane’s ’98 France team, to Ronaldinho, Kaka and Ronaldo in Korea/Japan, all the way to Götze’s golazo in Rio, we’ve seen the world’s game establish itself more and more in our homeland. With every World Cup cycle, we feel a greater sense of appreciation and admiration for our beloved game. We’ve watched players like Eric Avila and Joe Corona grow up on the soccer fields of San Diego and ascend to the professional and international ranks.

We’ve enjoyed seeing our Women’s National Team conquer the world again and again. We’ve witnessed the adoption of goal line technology, vanishing spray, and umpteen changes to the offside rule; all the while maturing from garage to brick and mortar shops across Southern California.

In taking our company, including employees and customers to the Next Level, we’ve embraced our core values – family, sport, respect, ambition, vision and time – and employ them with the same heart in business as we do on the fields of life. With this practice, we strive to improve the quality of life of each individual we connect with.

We look to our company values and consider the following mantra as their ultimate summary: Do the right thing.

Our core values are simple:

  • Family: Built by love and trust, family is the most important aspect of our lives. Greater than the sum of its parts, this bond requires selflessness and teamwork. A strong sense of loyalty and commitment are at the heart of every team. – Connect
  • Sport: Sport is medicine. Sport is life. Competition is healthy. we believe that competition builds character and makes everyone better. Sport is not just the source of our business but also of our passion for engaging in business. Strengthen your “self”. – Compete
  • Respect: Our most basic value; our golden rule. we believe in treating other as we would like to be treated, and we embody this throughout the the entire soccerloco community. – Respect.
  • Ambition: Deep down, everyone has as zest for life that can lead to greatness. Discover your passion, rise up, and be a champion. So what if you try and fail? You’ll never know if you don’t go for it. – Believe
  • Vision: We believe everyone is an artist who deserves the freedom to write their future. – Innovate
  • Time: Invaluable and irrevocable. We believe being mindful of the present, reflective of the past, and having a vision for the future is key to our success. – Experience

As we continue into the rest of 2017 and beyond, we expect to see more growth in soccer, particularly in the domestic game. Major League Soccer is knocking on San Diego’s door, and even without an expansion franchise to call our own, improvements in the lower leagues of American soccer combined with greater investment in the infrastructure of youth soccer gives us hope of a brighter future with more opportunities for the nest generation to blossom and flourish.

Here’s to the next 20 years. May they somehow surpass the last.
