Memphis 901 FC

The new USL professional soccer team in Memphis is not overlooking homegrown talented players who are ready to move to the next level.

Memphis 901 FC is holding open tryouts for local and regional players on Sunday, Dec. 2 at the DeSoto County Soccer Association fields, 7700 Stateline Road West in Southaven. Two separate trial games, at 10 a.m. and at noon, will have players being evaluated by technical staff, including head coach Tim Mulqueen. Tryouts are open to players that are age 18 and older.

Those players who stand out in the December tryout will be invited to come back for another tryout with professional players in January, prior to the team determining the roster for its initial season in 2019.

Deadline to register is 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 30. For more information, visit www.memphis901fc.com/tryouts.
