The newest USL team, El Paso Locomotive FC, is set to open its inaugural season on Saturday when it hosts OKC Energy FC.
First kick for the inaugural match will be at 7:30 p.m. at Southwest University Park. Its been over a year in the making for Locomotive FC and the squad is ready to get going.
“You walk around town players are getting noticed, people recognize the logo now so now that its here and upon us definitely the community is really getting behind it,” head coach Mark Lowry said.
Locomotive FC is confident it can compete in year one. El Paso will play a possession-based style, and look to score as often as possible.
