San Diego's NASL team name is NOT an 'Anchorman' reference, unless it is

Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it ...

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

The new San Diego NASL team has released its name: 1904 FC.

The foundation of the is apparently a tip of the cap to locals, though it feels like a bit of a reach and could definitely be seen as trying too hard.

We're still suspicious that this may or may not be an ode to the cinematic classic "Anchorman" and the team and owners (including Demba Ba and Eden Hazard) are just trolling us all.

At least it isn't another "United" name?

The team will begin play in 2018, assuming a lot of things go the NASL's way in a legal dispute with U.S. Soccer over second-division sanctioning.
