The San Antonio Scorpions will host Oklahoma City FC at Toyota Field on Sunday, July 14th at 7:30pm in a friendly match, benefiting the victims of the spring tornado that devastated the Oklahoma City area, Scorpions President Howard Cornfield announced on Friday.
"Soccer for a Cause was established to help people; that is why we are here," said Cornfield. "We will donate a portion of our proceeds from this game to help those that continue to suffer from the devastating effects of the May 20th tornado."
Oklahoma City FC currently play in the USL Premier Development League after joining in February of this year. The team competes in the Southern Conference of the PDL and plays their matches at Oklahoma City University Stars Field. Oklahoma City FC currently sits in third place in the Mid-South division of the Southern Conference on 19 points after 10 matches.
"Although this is out of Soccer for a Cause's normal mission, we still want to help, so we reached out to Oklahoma City FC to propose this game," said Scorpions owner Gordon Hartman. "I hope that we are able to make life a little easier for those that continue to suffer in Oklahoma."
Oklahoma joins Tigres UANL on July 6th and Dorados FC on July 20th as clubs to be lined up by the Scorpions to play at Toyota Field this month. San Antonio is fresh off of closing out their Spring Season with five straight wins entering the month long NASL break before the start of the fall season.
