EL PASO, Texas (KFOX14/CBS4) — El Paso’s new USL team is looking for players to jump on the crazy train.
El Paso Locomotive FC will be hosting tryouts for the team on Dec. 1 and 2 at Blackie Chesher Park at 1100 Zaragoza Road.
There is a tryout fee of $90. The tryout time will be emailed to participants.
Interested players can register to online until Nov. 28 or when all tryout spaces have been filled, a spokesperson said.
The registration fee includes two training shirts and a voucher for one El Paso Locomotive FC home game.
There will be an invitational player identification event on Dec. 8 and 9 in which players selected from the open tryouts and those who have been scouted will be asked to attend.
“The coaching staff and I will be in attendance, looking for players. There are fantastic players in El Paso and we want to give them the chance to try out for the team,” head coach Mark Lowry said.
Bob Bigney, director of soccer operations, added, “From the beginning, we knew there were talented players in and around El Paso. Mark and I have been around to several local games and training sessions to look at players. This tryout event will provide another opportunity for players to show us what they have and to see if they are ready to play at the professional level.”
