A new flavor in regional professional sports is coming to Amarillo.

With all the talk of Amarillo getting an affiliated minor league baseball team you may have missed the signs that professional soccer is making its way to Amarillo.  And this isn’t for a one-off exhibition between two teams from countries you never heard of on an American junket to promote what they call football.  This is all Amarillo.

The young US Arena Soccer League is based in Amarillo and continues to grow.  The Amarillo team, FC Amarillo is owned by the owners of the Amarillo Venom, our beloved indoor football team.

And you won’t have to wait until 2023 to see your team in action.

There are two exhibition games against FC Lubbock scheduled for Sunday, April 29th and June 3rd at 4pm.  FC Amarillo will kick off next season, Spring of 2019.

Tickets are on sale at the Civic Center box office or any Panhandle Ticket Outlet including United Supermarkets or call the office at 806-350-7277.
