Rio Rancho, N.M. (August 9, 2019) – With the announcement of US Soccer legend Landon Donovan and Team USA taking on Mexico in an International Arena Soccer Friendly at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, NM later this month, the American Association of Soccer567 has announced that they will be hosting combine/tryouts along with the New Mexico Runners on Friday August 23rd, 2019 at 7 PM.

The combine will look for talent to have the opportunity to play side by side with U.S. soccer legend Landon Donovan on the August 24th USA vs. Mexico game and also to have the opportunity to be a part of Team USA going to the 2019 World Mini Football World Cup in Perth, Australia October 1st to 11th.

Along with the US Arena Team Combine, the tryout will serve as the first open tryout for the upcoming New Mexico Runners Major Arena Soccer League 2 season. New Mexico is looking for talented athletes that can add to the team chemistry. Season 2 for the Runners will kick off in December at the Santa Ana Star Center.
