ALBUQUERQUE, NM - The previously announced pre-season friendly tomorrow will look slightly different. Due to weather, Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC is unable to make it tomorrow. The previously planned event is still happening. Fans will have the opportunity to see all 22 of the 2020 New Mexico United roster play on the field against each other, in a Somos Team v. Unidos Team Inter-Squad Scrimmage.
WHEN: Tomorrow, Saturday, February 8, 2020. Kick-off at 12 pm MT
WHO: All 22 New Mexico United players, coaching staff, office staff and hundreds of fans
WHAT: Snow in Colorado is preventing the Switchbacks from traveling to Albuquerque for tomorrow’s pre-season friendly. However, fans can STILL expect to see New Mexico United take the pitch. The inter-squad scrimmage game will be played between the Somos Team and the Unidos Team, composed solely of United players. This scrimmage style will allow fans to watch all 22 rostered players take the field. A charity shoot-out is planned following the scrimmage, with $750 being donated to the winning team's charity and $250 to the other. Watermelon Mountain Ranch and Cuidando Los Ninos will be in the running.
