The Men’s Team: A Summer Full of Trophy Opportunities

This summer will be no easy task for Club America who sets their sights on crossing the border and calling California their home. Las Aguilas have an array of matches on the horizon for this summer.

It wouldn’t be the first time the team has played games in the United States, but it would be the first time they are centralized in California for a tournament.
