FC Tucson releases schedule
Home matches announced against teams from California, Utah
FC Tucson released their Premier Development League schedule Thursday afternoon.
The team will open their season on the road against 2011 Southwestern Conference champion Fresno Fuego on May 5. The first crack local fans will have to see the team will be May 19 in a home match against the Southern California Seahorses.
"Now that our schedule is officially released and we can actually see who we're playing in 2012. The season feels like it's just around the corner," said FC Tucson Head Coach Rick Schantz. "Now that Tucsonans know when and where we'll be playing, we hope they plan on seeing some great soccer during the summer."
The team has yet to announce where they will play home games, but season ticket packages go on sale Feb. 22. They will be sold exclusively to fans who attend the 2012 FC Tucson Desert Diamond Cup. Adult packages are $80 for 10 home games. Children's packages (12 years and younger) are $60. Both packages will include an official FC Tucson scarf. Two games that remain to be scheduled will be included in the season ticket package.
