Share this

The Hurricanes will kick off their 2nd season in the National Premier Soccer League this spring. 

The league operates in the 4th Division of U.S. Soccer.  For the past three years, they have been working hard to put Lee County's largest city in the sports spotlight.

The first of their two open tryouts will start on January, 25 and they are already getting interest internationally.

Led by Head Coach Roy Hill, the team will battle other college, professional and amateur teams throughout the season starting in March.  The team will play a home and away schedule against the NPSL Sunshine Conference teams along with a series of Pre-season games including some very big names.  The Hurricanes will also continue their exhibition competitions with the Gulf Coast Cup and Everglades Cup series’. 

Hill says the team will definitely be improved from last year and will put Cape Coral on the map as players kick-off against these big names and large market teams, "Our players will have an incredible opportunity to play against top quality teams.  We'll be playing the Jacksonville United team who won the Sunshine Conference last season and won the NPSL National Title in 2011, while also playing returning teams from Tampa and Miami along with new teams from Fort Lauderdale and Puerto Rico."

The Hurricanes season will run from April to mid-August and will be feature exhibition games in March.  The schedule is set to be released in the next week or two.  Tryouts are open to anyone over the age of 16 and who currently hold amateur status.
