Less than one week remains before Sunday’s match and Sea-Tac fans are getting very excited! This is because FC Tacoma 253 could make history if it is to win against the San Diego Flash!
The game against Spartans FC decided which NSPL team would represent the Northwest Regional of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. After facing the heavily-favored Spartans FC (who finished 10-2-0 last year in the NPSL), FC Tacoma won 2-1, and now FCT 253 is ready for another fight. The opposing team, the San Diego Flash, defeated Deportivo Coras USA Inland Empire 4-1 in penalty kicks, winning the NPSL South West Regional of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.
While for San Diego this will just be a playoff game for the U.S. Open Cup, for FCT 253 this could be a historical day since, by winning the game, FCT 253 would be the first team from the city of Tacoma to so in the modern professional era (1995-present). For this reason FCT 253 decided to move the game to a field that can host all the expected fans. Seattle’s Memorial Stadium will create the perfect environment for an unforgettable day!
