SAN ANTONIO - The Corinthians Football Club of San Antonio will be playing at the Alamo Stadium for the 2015 season.
Corinthians FC SA will be the first soccer team to play at Alamo Stadium since 1976, when the San Antonio Thunder played at the venue.
In 2011, the Alamo Stadium recently underwent a $35 million renovation project, adding quality turf to the FIFA venue.
"We are honored to get to play in such an important stadium," said Corinthians FC SA Owner and President, Pete Veras. "The renovations done to (the) Alamo Stadium have made it one of the best soccer facilities in Texas. Add to that the beautiful historic nature of the stadium, and we think fans will have the best experience in (National Premier Soccer League) NPSL thanks to (San Antonio Independent School District) SAISD and Alamo Stadium."
Alamo Stadium seats 23,000 people, which will give Corinthians FC SA the largest capacity venue in all of the National Premier Soccer League.
Season tickets will be available for sale through the team's website.
Corinthians FC SA are a semiprofessional soccer team comprised of the best soccer players in the greater San Antonio area.
In January 2014, Corinthians FC SA entered the national stage and joined the NPSL and will compete in the NPSL South Central Region in 2015.
