Players have four weeks to submit their registration for consideration in the first Open Tryout in the history of Ottawa Fury FC. Registration into the Open Tryout for one of the North American Soccer League's (NASL) newest clubs opened on August 9 and since that time head coach Marc Dos Santos has received an overwhelming amount of interest from around the globe.
“The level of interest regarding our first ever Open Tryout is very high," Dos Santos said favourably. "We received more than 200 applications from players around the globe. Unfortunately or not, only 50 players will be selected." Dos Santos will identify a select number of players at each position to make up the 50 that will attend the Open Tryout at the Ben Franklin Superdome. With over 200 applicants to date and several more expected between now and the registration deadline of October 31, it is expected that the November tryout will be very competitive. "We think the level will be quite high and we believe that some of those players will get the chance to be invited to our official training camp in the new year. November 20 and 21 will be important in the clubs first ever NASL season," Dos Santos added.
