Established in 1984. In 1984, with his passion for and history in soccer overwhelming him, John Albertson opened Soccer City. His love of the game and his community are what drove him to keep it going as a small family-owned and operated business for the last 26 years. Weathering ups and downs, against all odds (as it's hard to find a small family business in Long Beach that's been around these many years), it's still here. Still serving the community.
In 1993, he expanded the small embroidery part of the business into a full professional wholesale/retail operation for businesses, retail customers, and of course sports teams. It's still what keeps us going in the "off-season".
In 2003 John turned the business over to his two daughters, Tiffany and Stephany. With Tiffany's passing his "adoptive" daughter Rossy stepped up to help Stephany with running the business. Of course, John never left. He's the man behind the curtain. And we wouldn't have it any other way.
John Albertson passed away Jan 29, 2015.
Jeff and Jennifer bought the shop from the Albertson family. Their vision for the shop is bring it back to what John had in the 90s. The shop already has a good name in the community. They what to keep it that way. Soccer City Embroidery is still the place to go for the best prices and customer service.
