International Arena Soccer action returns to the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho when the U.S. National Arena Soccer Team (USNAST) hosts Team Mexico on Saturday, August 24th at 7:00pm. This match is presented by the New Mexico Runners of Major Arena Soccer League 2 and the Santa Ana Star Center. The USNAST is part of the national team program operated by the American Association of Soccer567.
Included in this year’s roster is U.S. soccer legend Landon Donovan, who will make his third appearance with the arena national team. Donovan, who plays for the San Diego Sockers in the Major Arena Soccer League (MASL), is the all-time leader in assists for the U.S. men’s national team while also sharing the all-time scoring lead with Clint Dempsey as well as owning the second-most international caps. Donovan won a record six MLS Cups, owns the league’s all-time record for assists at 136, and is now the namesake for the league’s MVP award—the Landon Donovan MVP Award.
“This is an exciting event that everyone who knows soccer will love and will want to come to see Landon,” said New Mexico Runners team Owner and President Andres Trujillo. “We can’t wait to feature a game like this which shows that New Mexico has an arena soccer presence and fan base.”
The international meeting between Team USA and Team Mexico will be their second meeting at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho showcasing some of North America’s top indoor talent. The last time there was a USA vs Mexico game in New Mexico was in September of 2017.
Fans will have a historic opportunity to see a legendary soccer superstar like Landon up close like never before. Complete rosters for the event will be released in the coming weeks.
The New Mexico Runners completed their inaugural season in March and will kick off their 2nd season December 2019 at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho.
