Established in 2004, Dayak's Den Soccer was started when the owner, Troy Dayak, had a possible career ending injury. While playing a game for the San Jose Earthquakes he herniated two disks in his neck. Doctors said he would never play soccer again. When that thought sunk in, he thought how else can I give back to the community and still be involved with the sport that I love? So he opened a soccer store.
Proving his competitive nature, he returned back to play proving the doctors wrong and going on to win two MLS championship titles!
This would be the perfect combination. Store owner who still plays! He has worn all types of products so with his guidance and expertice the soccer store has thrived!
We often get asked, "what is the meaning behind the name of the store and your logo?" Dayak's Den (Dayak being his last name) was taken from Troy's fan club when he played professional soccer. His nickname on the field was "The Beast." We combined the fan club name with a logo of the eyes of a beast peering out of his den creating the Dayak's Den brand.
