Two Schedule Changes Made
The 14-time champion San Diego Sockers, in conjunction with the Major Arena Soccer League, have made two changes to their 2017-18 season schedule. The team’s scheduled Sunday, February 24 home game against Rio Grande Valley has been moved to Thursday, February 22, 7:35 p.m. The other change will have the Sockers traveling to play the Ontario Fury on Thursday, March 1, 7:05 p.m., instead of the previously scheduled December 22 date.
The club changed its home date to assist Valley View Casino Center with a scheduling issue. The game will also be designated as one of three $2 Bud Light Nights. Any fans who have tickets printed for the February 24 game should contact the Sockers front office via email at marybeth@SDSockers.com beginning Monday, December 11, for more information.
The Sockers/Fury match in Ontario was moved to accommodate the Fury’s home venue Citizen’s Business Bank Arena.
The team is also announcing a change to its theme night calendar. Due to the recently announced US Women’s National Team contest set for the same date and time as the Sockers game on Sunday, January 21, the popular All-Star Celebrity Halftime Game has been moved to Saturday, March 3, 7:05 p.m.
The Sockers will play the Turlock Express at Valley View Casino Center on Sunday, December 17, 5:05 p.m. It will be Star Wars Night, and the first 2,000 fans will receive a free pair of Lightsaber Bam-Bam Sticks. Parking is always free ($15 value), courtesy of the team. Gates open at 4:00 p.m.
