In true World Cup spirit, Fabio Pomponio is searching for soccer players aged 35 and up to come and participate in Prince Rupert’s newest team, set to take on competition in Terrace during Riverboat Days in the master’s division of the Riverboat tournament.
“We already have eight to 10 players already,” said Pomponio.
“We all used to play years ago when we were young and now we’re older and out of shape so we’re just trying to get back in and have some fun.”
The team has brand new jerseys from sponsors Northern Eyes Optometry and Coast Industrial Construction and practice every Tuesday and Thursday nights.
“We all work shift work. We want to try to get out to all the tournaments around the northwest. We want to try to get more active because all our kids are in soccer too,” said the organizer.
Anyone looking for more information can contact Pomponio at 250-600-7033 or drop by Northern Eyes Optometry for an opportunity to join.
