Saturday’s Noche Latina to Celebrate Sacramento’s Hispanic Community, Honor Region’s Changemakers


To kick off Hispanic Heritage Month, Republic FC and SMUD are teaming up to host the club’s annual Noche Latina match tomorrow night at Heart Health Park. From limited-edition merchandise and a pop-up makers mart, to special presentations that recognize Hispanic leaders in our community, here’s what fans can expect throughout the night.

Pasión y Orgullo: Hispanic Heritage Collection
Designed by local artists Rosa and Antonio Sarabia, co-founders and co-directors of Azules Design Studio, this year’s merchandise collection pays homage to the nationalities of the Republic FC players of Hispanic and Latino backgrounds, while also bringing inspiration from design styles first introduced during the 1968 Summer Olympics and 1970’s World Cup – both held in Mexico.

The Pasión y Orgullo collection is available online now at and will be available in the team store at Heart Health Park. This year, 10% of the collection’s scarf proceeds will go to La Familia Counseling Center.

Here’s what the artists had to say about some of the special details behind this year’s artwork and design process:
