Fullerton Rangers Become OC Spartans FC
UPDATE 4/3/2013: And faster than Lindsay Lohan’s next probation violation, the “Spartans” have changed their name, again, to reflect the youth club they’ve partnered with: Pateadores. The club has removed their twitter handle @OCSpartansFC and replaced it with @OCPateadores.
The former Fullerton Rangers soccer club of the NPSL, who used to be the Santa Ana Winds FC also of the NPSL, has changed their name yet again, this time to the “OC Spartans FC” in an attempt to bank on “the OC” brand.
The “Fullerton” branding endeavor was a flop, as they attempted to partner with the reputable Fullerton Rangers Youth Academy and use their name, but they played their games at Santa Ana Stadium.
This time around “OC Spartans FC” is partnering with the Pateadores youth soccer club, that plays its home games at Orange Coast College.
The “Spartans” will play another season at Santa Ana Stadium in the NPSL.
