On Saturday, November 11th, you can take the first step to making that happen when Rhode Island FC, the Ocean State’s new Men’s Soccer club, will hold open tryouts.
Tryouts will take place at Providence Country Day School, 660 Waterman Ave., East Providence. The open tryouts will provide an opportunity for regional talent and aspiring professional players to catch the eye of RIFC’s coaching staff and potentially secure an invitation to Rhode Island FC’s Player Identification Combine later this year.
“When I began my role as head coach, one of my top priorities was staying true to our club’s commitment in being a team for all of Rhode Island. I can think of no better way to fulfill that promise than by providing an opportunity for local talent to showcase their skills through an open tryout in state,” said Rhode Island FC head coach and general manager Khano Smith. “The team we put on the pitch will be a team we can all be proud of and it will reflect the character of our community.”
Rhode Island FC — an independently owned and operated team that will begin play in March at Beirne Stadium on the campus of Bryant University — has opened season ticket sales for the 2024 inaugural season to the general public. Fans can purchase season tickets at www.rhodeislandfc.com. The team's permanent home stadium is scheduled to be completed for the 2025 season — the Stadium at Tidewater Landing in downtown Pawtucket will be a state-of-the-art stadium with a 10,000-plus capacity.
