SAN ANTONIO, Texas Mexican soccer power Monterrey Rayados is bringing two of its younger squads – the Under-17 team and the Under-20 team – to play two area teams in separate exhibition matches, officials announced.
Monterrey’s U-17 squad will play the San Antonio Classic Elite All Stars and the U-20 team will play the Austin Aztex. Both exhibition matches will be played Friday, June 29, 2012 at Blossom Soccer Complex (U-17 at 6 p.m. and the U-20 at 8 p.m.).
Marco Barros, president of the Classic Elite Soccer Academy and the host club, says this is a rare opportunity for San Antonio fans to see two of Monterrey Rayados’ younger squads up close.
“These are two ultra talented squads and both will provide an excellent test for the Classic Elite All-Stars and the Austin Aztex,” Barros said. “Two exhibitions like this on one night at a great venue like Blossom will make for an exciting night of soccer.”
