The club began as a single 7-a-side recreational team composed of FoxSoccer.com and FoxSports.com employees, led by current owner Brian Perez and headquartered in Marina del Rey, California. Perez began expanding the club "into a thriving network of local amateur squads" on Los Angeles' Westside giving names to club teams that would be recognizable to Marina del Rey residents: Del Rey City 90 (named for Highway 90, the Marina Freeway), Del Rey City Admiralty (named for Admiralty Way, one of the main streets in Marina del Rey), Del Rey City 1965 (the year the Marina del Rey harbor was dedicated) and Del Rey City Argonauts (named for the local newspaper The Argonaut).[3]
