LOS ANGELES, Calif. – The Los Angeles Blues are pleased to announce Norco College’s Mustang Stadium as the venue for three of the remaining home matches of the 2011 season.
The college, a member of the Riverside Community College District, will host the Dayton Dutch Lions on July 17, Antigua Barracuda FC on July 31, and the Richmond Kickers on August 14, all with 5 p.m. PST kickoff times. The Blues’ August 2 home match against Antigua Barracuda FC will take place at a yet to be determined location.
While these will be the first ever USL PRO games played on site, the Norco venue is no stranger to the Blues. Shortly after being officially introduced to the league, the club held its scouting combine in Norco this past January. In addition, Los Angeles played its first-round match of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup at Mustang Stadium on June 14, defeating the Hollywood United Hitmen 3-1.
The Blues organization shares much excitement in returning to Norco for three additional games this season and looks forward to connecting with the local community. The matches will offer residents of the surrounding region a chance to witness professional soccer on a world-class level right in their own backyard.
