FC Tucson begins season with tri-match

TUCSON, AZ - FC Tucson will play host to Phoenix Rising FC and the University of Arizona Men's team on Saturday, April 29th at 7:30 p.m. at Kino North Stadium.

Players from each level of competition – collegiate, semi-pro, and pro – will face off against each other on the same field in a night that celebrates soccer in Arizona.

With the addition of international stars Didier Drogba, Omar Bravo, and Shaun Wright-Phillips, Phoenix Rising FC boast the type of quality Tucson has become accustomed to hosting since the addition of MLS Preseason.

Phoenix Rising FC is now being coached on an interim basis by Rick Schantz after the departure of manager Frank Yallop.

Schantz, who joined the Phoenix staff in the offseason as an assistant coach, will return to Tucson for his first appearance on the sideline since leading the Men in Black to three straight Premier Development League National Semifinals.

The match kicks off at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 29th.
