The Highrollers is the newest NASL Division II pro team that will make its season debut in 2013. The club has been playing for several years in Los Angles, CA and has now emerged as a pro team with a board of directors that consists of such names in Futbol as Franz Beckenbauer, regarded as one of the most famous German footballers of all time. He was voted third behind Johan Cruyff and Pele for the European player of the century by IFFHS. Mario Zagallo, a Brazilian that started his footballer career in America in 1948 was the first footballer to win the World Cup as a player in 1958,1962, and as a manager in 1970. He won again as an assistant coach in the1994 World Cup with the Brazilian national team. Zagallo also coached his country to a 4th place finish in the 1974 World Cup and to a 2nd place finish in the 1998 Cup.
In addition, on the board of directors for the Highrollers is PELE, a name that needs no explanation or introduction.

In total, PELE scored 1281 goals in 1363 games. He will be forever known worldwide for his accomplishments.
Also with the Highrollers is Carlos Alberto Torres, another Brazilian World Cup hero named by PELE as one of the top 125 greatest living footballers in 2004. Torres not only played in Brazil but also came to the US in 1977 and played in New York City for the Cosmos where he was reunited with his friend PELE. He won three National titles in the NASL in 1977,1978, and 1982. Torres was a five-time all-star in the NASL.

The Highrollers consists mainly of International players and as one might guess a lot of Brazilians.

 "The City has been a breath of fresh air for us." said Gerald Brunner; CEO & President of United Sports International Inc. (the parent Corporation that operates F.C.S.C.). "Russell Sypowicz and the rest of the City staff  have been a great support in our first year in Santa Clarita." Brunner went on to say; "It makes a real difference when the City that you wish to represent welcomes you and works with you. That is something we have not been use to. It's tough
enough trying to build a program of this type, but when the City you are working in does not support you it becomes an almost impossible task."

The Storm will l
ook to secure a home stadium for the 2013 season. Last season we enjoyed the hospitality of four
stadiums, Canyon High School (4 games), Hart High School (1 game), Valencia High School (1 league game & 1 international game), Golden Valley High School (1 game).ll were great facilities and the help from the school employees was unsurpassed. However, the Storm would like one location to call home, and will make an effort to secure the one stadium as soon as possible.
