YUMA, Ariz. – Roughly a week after One Goal LLC held it’s informational meeting about possibly bringing a semi-professional men’s soccer team to Yuma, a special halftime event at a prep soccer game may shed light on this being a reality.
One Goal’s John Godfrey presented a $15,000 check to the city of Yuma. Among the officials at Irv Pallack Field that were on hand to accept the check was City Administrator Greg Wilkinson.
The check acceptance will likely open the door for One Goal to bring a team in by 2016, in addition to a women’s semi-pro team that will begin playing in Yuma later this spring. Desert Sun Stadium will likely be converted from a baseball park to a soccer facility.
