NASL’s San Antonio Scorpions will host three-time Mexican league champion Tigres UANL in a friendly set for Toyota Field on July 6, at 8:30 pm ET.
The match will mark the first time in history that Tigres makes an appearance in San Antonio and bring their squad against the Scorpions during the month long NASL break between the spring and fall seasons.
“This match will be a great day for our Scorpions player, Javier Saavedra to lead us against his old club where he played 300 games,” said Scorpions Head Coach Tim Hankinson. “It will be a bigger day for the San Antonio community to cheer for their Scorpions team and their Tigres team at Toyota Field.”
Saavedra, who currently leads the Scorpions in assists this NASL season, played Tigres from 1998-2010.
Under the direction of Ricardo Ferretti, this will be one of the final tune-up matches for Tigres before the start of the 2013 Liga MX Apertura (Opening) Season.
Tigres, officially known as Club de Fútbol Tigres de la Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León, was founded in 1960 and represents one of the two professional soccer clubs in the state of Nuevo Leon and were first promoted to the first division in Mexico in 1974.
