As Boca Raton Football Club continues to prepare for the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL), the club has announced two preseason games that will pin Boca Raton FC with a familiar PDL foe, as well as one of the best college soccer teams in South Florida.
Boca Raton FC will take on FC Miami City on Saturday, March 31 at Tropical Stadium at 6pm.
“FC Miami City has been a team we always open our preseason schedule with,” says president Douglas Heizer. “We are excited to continue this partnership with another game at the end of the month.”
For head coach Jim Rooney, this will be his club’s first test as they prepare to navigate an NPSL season filled with hard competition.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to get this preseason started,” states Rooney. “We have a strong squad and we are looking forward to the challenge both this preseason and regular season will bring.”
Based in Miami, FC Miami FC plays in the PDL’s Southern Conference where they just finished runners-up to SIMA Aguilas.
Boca Raton FC will then face-off versus Lynn University on April 20 at Bobby Campbell Stadium in Boca Raton, in what is also a traditional game versus the university before every season.
“Lynn has great athletes,” says Rooney. “Many greats have come from this school and a few Boca Raton FC players as well. We are excited about the chance to play them once again to start our season.”
Lynn University just finished the season as the 2017 NCAA Division II National Runner-Up after falling in overtime 1-0 to Charleston. Lynn finished the season 14-4-3.
