Professional soccer returns to Southwest University Park

Crews transform Southwest University Park into soccer field for Wednesday's match against FC Juarez and Club Leon.

Southwest University Park prepares to host a soccer exhibition match Wednesday.

Club Leon will play FC Juarez at 7 p.m.

Southwest University Park crews worked to transform the field Tuesday.

"We're proud to present world-class soccer to the Borderplex region in the beautiful setting at Southwest University Park," said Alan Ledford, MountainStar Sports Group President. "Local soccer fans will get the opportunity to see regional favorites FC Juarez Bravos play Club Leon, one of the most popular teams in Liga MX."

FC Juarez (13-7-10), winners of the Apertura 2015 of the Ascenso MX league, are seeking a promotion to Liga MX, the premier soccer league in Mexico. The Bravos will play a home-and-home series on May 14 and 21 versus Club Necaxa for the chance to advance to the First Division.

Club Leon (9-5-3) out of Guanajuato, Mexico, currently ranks third in the Liga MX in the Clausura 2016. The team has won the Liga MX Primera Division title seven times, including as recently as Clausura 2014.

Tickets for the game are available at or at the ballpark's box office locations.
