Soccer players from all over the area compete for a spot on the 2018 TCAFC team.

TRI-CITIES, WA – Tri-Cities Alliance FC held their first open tryouts as an Evergreen Premier League club last weekend and were pleased with a turnout of over 50 players looking to play at the elite adult statewide level.

Head Coach AB Moreno was excited by what he saw on the field. “I can’t wait to start working with the team and getting ready for our season debut.”

There were a few guys that turned some heads and also a couple of surprises that could make the squad and boost the side’s chances in 2018.

“I saw so much talent and I can’t wait to see it come together on the field,” says General Manager Ramiro De La Mora.

Club Business Manager JD Loveless adds: “We had a great turnout. Tons of talent. This year will be exciting!”

“I want to give a big thank you to Columbia Basin College and AD Scott Rogers for helping us out with a field,” added Zachary Sansom, the team’s Operations Manager.

The Lions are preparing for their league debut on Saturday May 5 when they travel to the Spokane Shadow. TCAFC opens their home season on Saturday May 19 at 7 PM when they host Spokane at Lampson Stadium in Kennewick.
