BREMERTON — Kitsap Soccer Club has partnered with Harbor Soccer Club to help support the local youth club’s scholarship program. The club has agreed to contribute 75 percent of the profit from its first preseason match of 2017, on May 13, against the Harbor SC men’s team, to the youth club.
Kitsap’s match against Puget Sound FC has been canceled as a result, and the Harbor SC friendly moved one week later. Admission will be $5 per person. Tickets are available on the Kitsap Soccer Club’s website.
Members of Harbor SC who purchase a ticket to the preseason match will be able to buy a 2017 Kitsap SC season ticket for the discounted rate of $30.
The match will also be Kitsap SC’s first since joining the National Premier Soccer League. It’s the first of just two preseason matches on the schedule ahead of the 2017 regular season, which kicks off May 20 at home against the Spokane Shadow.
Following the game, players will be available on the field for autographs and to meet fans.
Kitsap Soccer Club begins its first season in the National Premier Soccer League in 2017 after eight seasons as the Kitsap Pumas in the Premier Development League.
In the club’s eight-year history, it won the PDL national championship in 2011 and advanced to the national final again in 2014, establishing themselves as a club with a proven record of providing a high level of training and play for aspiring professionals as a stepping stone to the next levels of American soccer.
Kitsap SC plays its home matches at Gordon Field at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds in Bremerton.
