Falcon Park to Host Pro Soccer Team for Season


Auburn’s Falcon Park will be a home stadium for a professional soccer team this season.

Flower City Union, a team in the National Independent Soccer Association, will play three home games at the Auburn stadium.

Mark Washo with the team believes this is the beginning of a relationship between the team and the city ,telling Finger Lakes News Radio “ideally, I think as we move forward we still want to have a presence in Auburn because we do feel like its a good community, close knit, and we’ve heard a lot of positive things about the sports environment there.”

When in Auburn, the team will play as Salt City Union, in honor of its Syracuse heritage as the team is a merger of Rochester based Flower City Union and the Syracuse Pulse.

The first Auburn game is this Saturday against Los Angeles Force. The remaining two games will be held on July 8th and September 23rd against Club De Lyon FC and Michigan Stars FC respectively.

More information on the team and ticket info can be found on the team’s website.
