    FC Arizona reported that they formed 8 teams for a “successful youth club launch.” Estudantez has 5 coaches and a rec program. I am going to guess they had exactly 8 teams that came over. I am also going to guess that FC Arizona had +/- zero new players sign up based on what I saw at tryouts.

    I am going to hold my breath while I wait and see if FC Arizona is awarded APL next year as promised.

    Where can I sign up to invest in that stadium as well that is definitely going to happen.

    Yeah, I am curious also. We were thinking about going out there, but we already got an offer from another club. It is compelling since their future plans look pretty grandiose. I just wonder how they could possibly get a facility that is better than the Phoenix Rising since the Rising are trying to get into MLS. Time will tell.

    Estudantez only had 1 team registered for Port of Subs and were 2006 team made up of 07’s, 08’s & 09’s. I was informed at a tryout FC Arizona “Estudantez” is only going to charge $400 for players. I am confused if Estudantez is now FC Arizona why is Estudantez promoting tryouts and rec programs on their website? Very concerning!

    Guessing Estudiantez will continue to operate as it always has - as a mostly rec club in the far far SE Valley and "FC Arizona" will operate out of their "new" locations and are really only using Estudiantez as a way to access ASA leagues via an existing club vs dealing with ASA's 2-year waiting period. It's not the first time for this to happen.

    Anyone have any idea how strong their teams are going to be?
  6. It looks like the only teams that applied to APL are 06, 04, & 03 girls.
    It looks like those are Arizona FC teams ( https://www.arizonafc.com/ ) , not FC Arizona/Estudantez AZ Soccer Club. I think they would have to use Estudantez as the name to get into APL. I didn't see either club (FC Arizona/Estudantez AZ Soccer Club) apply for APL. It appears they will not have any Advanced League teams.
