The National Premier Soccer League has announced that Academica Soccer Club has been added to the league and will become a member of the Golden Gate Conference. Academica will join FC Davis as conference newcomers for the 2018 season.
Academica SC was founded in Turlock by immigrants from the Azores Islands of Portugal more than 40 years ago. Academica competed in the Central California Soccer League (CCSL) for more than 30 years before moving to the NorCal Adult Soccer League in 2013. The club has its own grounds -- Academica Field -- in rural Stanislaus County.
