Phoenix Rising takes the field in July 2017 in their stadium in Scottsdale.

Phoenix Rising soccer team has announced its preseason schedule for the upcoming year — it includes February games against several Major League Soccer (MLS) teams, which have trained in Tucson for the past several years.

This comes on the heels of Phoenix Rising not being invited to join MLS. It currently plays in the United Soccer League, which is a lower-level one.
