WICHITA — FC Wichita is preparing for their first home game against Tulsa Athletic on Saturday, May 25.. These two teams matched up back in May 11 at Tulsa, Oklahoma for a scoreless draw.
With players coming back, there will be more depth in the rosters; improving more on defense as they give up one goal against Club Atletico Saint Louis on a penalty kick.
“The biggest thing right is getting everyone in practice, we have a lot of people miss,” Victor Olorunfemi said. “The biggest preparations is getting that chemistry back.”
With the first two games of the NPLS, FC Wichita is still unbeaten, and is third in the Heartland Conference. Some players would like to have those two games back but all we can do is to improve in our game.
“We got to move past that, focus on what’s new, and focus on ourselves,” Eddie Gomez said. “Make sure that were all on the same page so we can be ready for Saturday.”
With Saturday’s match up against Tulsa Athletic, the players will get to be at home for the first time this season and experience the new field in action and hear the home crowd cheering on.
“I think we have the best home crowd in the nation.” Olorunfemi said.
The Boys in Red return for their home opener at Stryker Stadium on May 25, also against Tulsa Athletic. That is a scheduled 7:30 p.m. kickoff. Tickets can be purchased here for only $10. Buy your tickets and join in as FC Wichita looks to get their first home win at Stryker.
