The Toyota Field “dry run” will be a full rehearsal for the stadium and it’s staff. The first-ever scrimmage at Toyota Field is open to the public and admission is free of charge. Gates open at 6:00 pm and concessions, beverages and new team merchandise will be on sale throughout the scrimmage.
“This will be a great opportunity for fans and media members alike to get a first look at the facility as well as our new team,” said Cornfield. “Scorpions fans will also get a sneak peek at the new uniforms that the players will be wearing, and Head Coach Tim Hankinson will be “mic’d up” for the duration of the match, giving insight to his coaching strategies and thoughts on the Scorpions squad.”
“This is an opportunity for our players to get acquainted with Toyota Field, and it also provides some final preparation for our home opener on April 13th,” said Hankinson.
The scrimmage provides a rehearsal for players, fans and staff alike in preparation for the Grand Opening of the newest American soccer-specific stadium, Toyota Field on April 13th for the Scorpions’ NASL home opener vs. the Tampa Bay Rowdies.
