Santa Clara, CA., Thursday, December 31, 2015 – The Superior Court of California Judge Joseph Huber today set a hearing to review the city of Santa Clara’s and the NFL’s effort to take over the Santa Clara Youth Soccer Park on Monday, January 4, to build a media village for Super Bowl 50.

Judge Huber has set a hearing for Wednesday, January 6, at 1:30 p.m. to hear our motion for preliminary injunction. While Judge Huber did not grant a temporary restraining order as we requested, he sent a clear message to the city and the NFL by setting a hearing.

“The city and the NFL will displease the court and take a huge risk if they move one bulldozer before a formal hearing,” said Gautum Dutta, the attorney representing Santa Clara Youth Soccer League (SCYSL).

“If the city and the NFL want to build a Super Bowl media village, they can’t break the law, they shouldn’t displace kids who need a place to play, and they shouldn’t destroy the youth soccer park,” said Steve Robertson SCYSL Vice President.

The Santa Clara Youth Soccer League is a non-profit youth soccer organization founded in 1980 to provide recreational, competitive and Top Soccer programs. The Santa Clara Youth Soccer League is organized under the California Youth Soccer Association. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for youth players of all levels of skill to participate in soccer programs.
