New information this morning about a sports partnership for soccer in Tucson; it's designed to help some of the younger athletes in the area.
FC Tucson will take the field this summer, but before them will be a local team of young women. Some of FC Tucson's soccer dates this season will be doubleheaders. FC Tucson will be playing the second game and young women from Tucson's Soccer Academy will be playing before.
The Tucson Soccer Academy is Club Soccer. One such team is made up of high school seniors, who won the state cup last year.
Officials with both teams say it's a great chance to spotlight the young athlete's talent. And they say it's important for them to see role models playing the game they love.
The women will be taking the pitch four dates this summer in June and July.
In just a few hours FC Tucson will also officially start building its new home in town.
