Our soccer-loving friends over at Doyle’s Public House send the following heads-up regarding a couple of soccer films that will be showing at the Tacoma Film Festival, which runs Thursday through Oct. 8.
Thursday is the start of the Tacoma Film Festival and this year there are two movies with soccer themes. Winning Isn’t Everything is a must see for any aspiring player or coach. The second film should be interesting for all the soccer rats out there who are in continual search of a field with players.
If you are affiliated with any soccer groups or clubs please help spread the word about this wonderful opportunity to watch these two films.
