The 6th Annual Spring Soccer Expo returns to Taos Eco Park Saturday April 16, 2016 with a single action packed day of soccer for the northern New Mexico community.
Taos Eco Park hosts 4 full length NCAA and Pro matches on Saturday April 16 beginning at 10am with Air Force Academy v UNM Lobos, CSU Pueblo v Air Force Academy at 1pm, UNM Lobos v Fort Lewis College at 4pm and Albuquerque Sol v CSU Pueblo at 6:30pm.
NCAA Division I UNM Lobos and coach Jeremy Fishbein have been faithfully making the journey north each year since the Eco Park opened in 2011 in April to touch base with their northern fans and give our youth a chance to rub elbows with these top college athletes. This year they will take on Doug Hill’s Air Force Academy squad, and NCAA Division II (RMAC) Fort Lewis College with new head coach Dave Oberholtzer.
Things will be heating up at the park as the sun goes down – Albuquerque’s Premier Development League (PDL) the Sol coached by Matt Gordon return to battle Roy Stanley’s NCAA Division II CSU Pueblo Thunderwolves at 6:30pm under the lights.
Concessions, including grill items and microbrews will be provided by Taos Mesa Brewing for the enjoyment of the crowd, and tickets will be just $5 for the full day of soccer action with Taos Youth Soccer League players in uniform admitted free of charge.
Fun raffles, half-time entertainment, and more will round out the event.
