FAIRFIELD, OH – The Cincinnati Swerve men’s soccer team is entering its second year of MASL 2 league play and hosts the 2017 Champion Chicago Mustangs in their season opener at GameTime Training Center on Saturday, December 1 at 8:05pm.
The first players joining the Cincinnati Swerve for the 2018-2019 season are seasoned veterans Emmanuel Adjei (D), Corey Whisenhunt (GK) and Christian Johnson (F), who all received All-MASL 2 Team accolades last season – 1st team, 2nd team and Honorable Mention respectively. Adjei was also called up to the US National Arena Soccer Team for a game this past May.
Cincinnati Swerve Head Coach Craig Rhodis is very excited about the upcoming season and has plans to return to the MASL 2 playoffs again this year. “We were happy with our results in our first season of the league last year, but we plan to build on our previous success by adding a few key players that can give our team a competitive edge. Our veteran players have also stepped up to elevate our play and it has been exciting to watch it all come together in practice. We certainly want to continue to provide opportunities for our players to play at the highest levels and put a team on the field that our fans enjoy watching.”
The Swerve will host six home games at GameTime Training Center during the 2018-2019 season. The full schedule, roster and ticket information can be found at cincinnatiswerve.com.
