Monterey Bay Football Club holds second round of tryouts

The Monterey Bay Football Club is holding its second round of tryouts this weekend and coaches are looking to finalize the roster. “I think it’s been good. Good game, tons of energy,” said Monterey Bay Football Club head coach Frank Yallop. Monterey Bay Football Club is getting closer and closer to filling the roster. The club held a second round of tryouts after the first round in October. The coaches invited about a dozen first-round players for another chance to make the team. Also among the returning players are about 90 athletes from around the world who are also competing for a spot. “Yeah, it’s not easy because of course we’re looking at a lot of players at once. You know, we identified the guys we’ve invited, so they’re obviously high on our list. Then there’s new guys that come to the eye jump and we go through their resumes and we know where they’ve played so we know what level they’re at. But you never know,” Yallop said. The team will start their season in their brand new stadium, Cardinale Stadium, which will open in May during their first game. “It’s such an iconic location. The structure here is fantastic. You know, just the bowl shape with the cypress trees around the edges. It was just a great base for us,” said club president Mike DiGiulio. Cardinal Stadium will have many features including; stands on either side of the pitch, a VIP area, new changing rooms, stadium lighting, Alvarado Street Brewery will have a beer garden in the stadium. The Monterey Bay Football Club administration said the new stadium is cost effective while also listening to what fans expect. DiGiulio said: “The community has embraced the team so much and we feel a real obligation to make sure we produce what they’re looking for in the field and make sure this is a game to experience that everyone shares.” Yallop added: “It’s going to be a great place. The atmosphere will be great, intimate, but enough fans to make it really, you know, dangerous and not fun to come play against us. That’s why we want that. So I feel good about that.” “I just can’t wait to get the guys in and play and play some games,” Yallop said.
