Boston City FC is to hold Open Tryouts for prospective players at Harry Della Russo Stadium in Revere on Sunday, March 17, from 9am to 12pm.
The Lions technical staff will oversee the search for players with the potential to compete with the first team in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) and the Boston City FC II development squad in the Bay State Soccer League (BSSL).
Players wishing to join the tryouts will be able to register and complete payment at the Boston City FC website here: https://www.bostoncityfc.com/2019tryouts/. All tryouts participants must be aged 18 or older.
The 2019 NPSL season is set to kick off in late April, while the new BSSL league and cup campaign opens on March 30.
Open tryouts have given opportunities to several first team regulars including 2016 top scorer Homero Morais (pictured), defender Marcelo Cunha who is the club’s appearances leader, and 2017 regional all-NPSL selection midfielder Michael Rincon. Last year, midfielder Chris Gilbert and forwards Danny Apajee and Reko Wesad Al-Saadi were among those who emerged from the tryouts and saw action in the BSSL and U.S. Open Cup qualifying.
Boston City FC plays at the highest level of the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) sanctioned league structure in the eight-team North Atlantic Conference of the NPSL Northeast Region and will call Harry Della Russo Stadium in Revere home for the upcoming season. The neighboring city of Medford, where the Lions have strong ties to the local youth soccer community, will also host two regular season matches, at Hormel Stadium.
