Tucson soccer fans may not have a MLS franchise to call their own, but for the first two months of 2014, Tucson fans will have several teams for whom to cheer.

In addition to the six MLS teams participating in the 2014 Desert Diamond Cup, FC Tucson invited six additional MLS clubs to train and play pre-season friendlies in the Old Pueblo in early February. Those five teams are: Houston Dynamo, Portland Timbers, San Jose Earthquakes, Sporting Kansas City and Seattle Sounders.

FC Tucson, established in 2010, is committed to bringing the highest caliber of competitive soccer to Tucson. FC Tucson owns FC Tucson Soccer, Tucson’s top-level soccer team and the FC Tucson Desert Diamond Cup, a Major League Soccer pre-season tournament. Follow what’s going on with the FC Tucson Desert Diamond Cup here.

The awesome thing about Lodge on the Desert is that it is located in mid-town, less than 4.5 miles and only 8 minutes from Kino Stadium! That makes it a practical as well as otherwise ideal lodging choice when coming to town for any MLS-related event! For reservations call 877-498-6776.
