Due to unforeseen circumstances The Riverside Coras Football Club will no longer be able to compete in the second annual Riverside County Cup. We at the Coras believe that the Riverside County Cup is essential to growing the game within our community. We believe that this years competition will be a vital step in the further development of soccer within Riverside County.
We would like address a few questions our fans may have about our current situation.
What are the reasons that the Riverside Coras FC can no longer compete in the Riverside County Cup?
Couple of reasons. First Our Team Manager, Jose Esqueda, had a heart attack at work which led to him having emergency heart surgery. His health and recovery is our number one priority. For this reason the team was not able to regroup and train for the County Cup.
Another reason is field availability. It is difficult to find a soccer field to train twice a week in the evening during youth club season.
What improvements are being made in preparation for the 2019 season?
We are in contact with the City of Riverside, speaking with Council member Andy Melendrez and seeking support from our city. We have a couple of projects that are being discussed, but can not give specifics at this time. A training field is on top of the list.
Message to our fans
We are very grateful for the support of our great fans, Mayor Bailey and Council member Andy Melendrez who have been supportive our club since day one and who continue to be supportive of our future. We have the best and most loyal fans in the Inland Empire and we are looking forward to bringing the highest level of soccer to our community. This coming season our fans will see new and exciting pro talent. We are looking to sign 2-3 pro players this coming season.
To our loyal and faithful fans, we will be having our “2019 Season Pass” for $25 during the month of November! (Limited amount sold) 100 available at this price.
