Last time out

SAFC earned a 3-1 win at home against OKC Energy FC last weekend. Rafa Castillo and Frank Lopez scored for San Antonio, who got back into the top 10 with the victory.

Los Dos fell on the road to Phoenix Rising FC 1-4 on Saturday and are two points up on San Antonio for ninth place.


Playoff Fight

Coming into this weekend, San Antonio FC is just two points behind LA for ninth in the West and a win would put them into a three way tie for seventh in the conference.

Everybody knows how important the points are at this stage of the year because they can certainly influence the coming weeks. Our ambition and drive is to make the playoffs and Friday night is an opportunity to earn points against a rival in the table.”
