Austin FC, FC Dallas, the Houston Dynamo FC, and San Antonio FC will participate in the inaugural edition of “La Copita”, a newly formed preseason tournament that will kick off ahead of the Major League Soccer (MLS) and United Soccer League (USL) 2021 seasons.
“I’m glad we have been able to organize La Copita, and we’re hopeful it becomes an important part of Austin FC’s preparations each season for years to come,” added Claudio Reyna, Austin FC Sporting Director.
“Participation in La Copita is an important part of our preseason preparations,” commented Josh Wolff, Austin FC Head Coach. “We’re taking on our two soon-to-be MLS rivals and a strong USL side in San Antonio FC, giving our squad three opportunities to progress match fitness and technical preparation ahead of our first regular season match against LAFC on April 17th.”
In addition to FC Dallas, the Houston Dynamo and San Antonio FC, OKC Energy FC will also take part in one La Copita match, away to the Houston Dynamo on April 6th
