Port of Entry / May 1, 2019
Tijuana’s professional soccer team, the Xoloitzcuintles, have fans on both sides of the border.
In fact, the Xolos’ official tagline is “el equipo sin fronteras” — the team without borders.
Today, we talk to self-described “Gringo Xolos,” a growing group of fans in San Diego who are obsessed with the soccer team in Tijuana.
Port of Entry
Border people often inhabit this in-between space created by the separation and collision of two cultures. From KPBS and PRX, “Port of Entry” tells personal stories from this place — stories of love, hope, struggle and survival from border crossers, fronterizxs and other people whose lives are shaped by the wall. These are cross-border stories that connect us, brought to you by host Alan Lilienthal, producer Kinsee Morlan and sound designer Emily Jankowski.
