Phoenix Rising FC held open tryouts for more than 100 soccer players in January. The goal? Earning a roster spot ahead of the team’s March 11 season opener.

“We’re looking for local talent, somebody that is not on the radar right now,” assistant coach Marcos Reina said. “It’s a way to be sure that we know about players in the Phoenix area. Maybe we can find a hidden talent here. That’s why the tryout is important, to see if we were missing some local talent.”
