Switchbacks Game Preview‏

The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC are hitting the road again this weekend, this time to take on fellow USL Western Conference club Arizona United SC.
This will be the first meeting between the two clubs. The match will be played at Arizona United SC’s
new Scottsdale Stadium, which saw a record-breaking crowd of more than 6,100 for their home opener
last weekend.
While this is the inaugural USL season for the Switchbacks FC (2-3-0), it is the second for Arizona United
SC (3-2-0), which is currently fifth in the conference. So far this season, the Switchbacks FC have come
out on top against the Real Monarchs SLC, but have dropped in heartbreaking losses to the Austin Aztex
and OKC Energy FC.
“We are looking forward to regaining the momentum that we had after the two wins over the Monarchs,”
said Switchbacks FC Head Coach Steve Trittschuh. “We had a poor 20 minutes to start the game last
weekend in Austin and we have worked on being intense from the opening whistle. The team has
improved in each game we have played and the players are gaining more confidence in each other.”
You can watch Saturday’s match live on YouTube starting at 8:30 p.m.
