(Victor Valley)– The San Bernardino County Fair kicks off Saturday, May 21 and so too, does the Ontario Fury. High Desert soccer fans have scored a goal as the Fury will lead multiple soccer and dance clinics on opening weekend followed by a FREE exhibition game on Monday night, May 23. The Fury Street Team booth will feature raffles and free giveaways for fair attendees Saturday, May 21 through Monday, May 23. Fury fans will also get a chance to meet and take photos with players, team mascot “Stryker,” and dance team members all three days.
“We have a pretty big fan base who live in the High Desert and we have been very active supporting the local youth soccer organizations so we are thrilled we can take part in the San Bernardino County Fair this year. We are very community minded and hope to add even more activities and entertainment for Fair attendees,” explained Bernie Lilavois, President & Head Coach of the Ontario Fury.
SoCal soccer fans will be happy to hear the 2015-16 Most Valuable Player, Mauricio Salles, is returning for the 2016-17 season. The native of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, led the Fury with 30 goals and 46 points last season, placing him fourth in the league in total points.
“Over the last ten years we have seen youth soccer players and organizations increase in our area,” says Joseph Ramos, Recreation Supervisor for the Town of Apple Valley. “There will definitely be excitement in the air when our local residents get word that the Ontario Fury will be in town.”
