Are you ready for some (real) football?
Saturday, June 14, 7 p.m.
Who’d have thought Oklahoma, a bastion of all-American sports like football, basketball and baseball, would be struck by that variety of football madness that incites a fervor for striped scarves? Oklahoma City is serious about its sports, and it seems the Oklahoma City Energy is about to become the Sooner state’s next game obsession. Also known as The Grid, the football club is the city’s pro soccer (alright, football) team in both the USL Pro and North American Soccer League. The Energy plays its home games at Pribil Stadium at Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School, 801 N.W. 50th St., Oklahoma City. This is the team’s first big season, but the Energy’s home opener last month proved to be a draw when the match sold out. The team may have lost that game, but soccer is known for its loyal supporters, and the Energy has them.
As the globe gathers in Brazil for the World Cup, the OKC Energy face the Sacramento Republic at Pribil Stadium, at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 14.
Single game tickets start at $7. For more, see www.energyfc.com.
