NASL’s San Antonio Scorpions will host another international friendly against a Mexican team next month when Club Social y Deportivo Dorados de Sinaloa (Dorados) visits Toyota Field on July 20.
The last-time the Scorpions faced Dorados was in Stockton, California in 2012 when forward Hans Denissen scored twice to lead San Antonio to a 3-0 win.
"Dorados has been gunning for revenge since we beat them by three goals last year in Stockton," said Scorpions President and General Manager Howard Cornfield. "We are dedicated to bringing in exciting teams to Toyota Field for our fans and I think his will be a good test for us against another good Mexican team, and our fans will enjoy this matchup."
Founded in 2003, the Culiacán, Sinaloa based Dorados are two-time Ascenso MX (second-division) league champions and captured the 2012 Copa MX (Mexico’s version of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup). Dorados still hold the distinction as the youngest club to play in the Mexican First Division (Liga MX), participating in the Apertura tournament in 2004.
The encounter against Dorados adds a second international match during the month long NASL break for the Scorpions who are scheduled to take on Tigres UANL (MEX) on July 6, at Toyota Field.
Tickets for the Scorpions-Dorado match are on sale now and can be purchased by calling 210-495-8686 or by visiting www.sascorpions.com.
