In the newly designated sports corridor, just up the road from Rawhide Stadium, sits Soccer City 1852 Visalia. For years, Jeremy Schultz dreamt of a new way to bring the most-followed sport in the world to the heart of Visalia, with a little extra joy sprinkled in for the fans.
On December 4, 2021, 1852 Visalia broke ground in an old pipe yard on Murray Avenue. Two acres of land were repurposed for the soccer community of Tulare County. Jeremy envisioned a space where athletes and fans could both enjoy an afternoon; a little street-style footy mingled with craft brews. In partnership with Bill Cummings, Jeremy and the rest of the 1852 Visalia partners created a space specifically tailored to the local community. Centered around eight game seasons, 1852 Visalia is a destination for soccer fans of all ages, genders, and skill levels. The space was created with an urban vibe and houses three 80’ x 50’ fully enclosed artificial turf fields. Tables will span the open spaces allowing fans to cheer on their favorite soccer player after grabbing a refreshment from the on-site brewery, 1852 Brew Co.
