Keeping with its vision of growing soccer in Arizona, Sporting AZ FC has launched a second team, Sporting AZ FC II, which is competing in the Arizona Champions League.
Club President and General Manager Tim Marchisotto said, “We’ve seen so many talented players over the past year, especially from Arizona’s collegiate programs, that we decided to create an opportunity for them to be part of our system, and keep improving under our coaching staff during their offseason. We’re committed to developing guys who want to play, so this was a no-brainer for us.”
Marchisotto will serve as head coach.
In addition to the ACL, Sporting AZ FC II will compete in a series of exhibitions which will be announced as they are scheduled. The first of these will be this afternoon against the University of Victoria (Canada).
