If you live near Amarillo you might have heard there is no baseball team. No owners or players and even a stadium. So what if I knew about a professional affiliated soccer team coming to Amarillo to call home.

Over the past decade, we have seen teams come and go from here. None tend to last long not like the Amarillo Dillas. Now shout out to the Amarillo Soccer Academy for working hard to bring new ways to play the game of soccer to the area. This world sport has got our city growing with more and more kids playing every year.

Club de Fútbol Pachuca, the Six time champions most recent in 2016 is based in Pachuca, Hidalgo, which they compete in the tough Liga MX in Mexico. Now, this is what the city needs an affiliated team, which has ties to championships, local kids that enjoy the game of soccer could now have a chance to play for a real professional team in a sport that the whole world watches.

With baseball out the door, we as a city should now support soccer as a whole and welcome them to the city with open arms and who knows we could be apart of a championship team in the future.
