BEAUMONT, TX, September 18, 2013 – SMG, management company of Ford Park, is pleased to announce the second season of Texas Strikers Soccer at Ford Arena!
The Texas Strikers of the Professional Arena Soccer League (PASL) will return to Ford Park hungry to improve on their inaugural season. The Strikers announced their nine date home schedule for the 2013/14 season today. The home opener is scheduled for Saturday, November 16 against the expansion Saltillo Rancho Seco, one of three Mexican teams competing in the PASL this season.
Texas will be joined by Saltillo, the Monterrey Flash, Hidalgo La Fiera, Dallas Sidekicks, Tulsa Revolution and Wichita B-52s in the PASL's Central Division.
