Kalamazoo FC starts their National Premier Soccer League schedule on Friday at Mayors Riverfront Park when they host FC Indiana at 7 p.m.
FC Indiana finished in 8th place last year in the Great Lakes Conference standings with a 1-12-1 record. However, the team this year has a preseason record of 7-1 and looks to be very much improved from last year. The team also plays in the Premier Arena Soccer League during the winter season.
Kalamazoo FC finished in 5th place in the NPSL last season. The team had a record of 5-6-3 in their second season in the NPSL. Kalamazoo FC heads into its 2018 campaign with a new coach in Brian Clements and a mix of new and returning players. Last season Kalamazoo FC went 0-1-1 against FC Indiana, losing at home and than drawing 3-3 in Indiana.
Kalamazoo FC is coming off their 2-0 win against the SW Michigan All-Stars last weekend. The team looked strong on the offensive end although finishing was not at its peak yet. The team will look to start off their NPSL season off strong with a victory at home.
FC Indiana is based out of Lafayette, Indiana and was founded in 2000. The club did not have a men’s team until 2006 when they entered the NPSL. The team then only played in the PASL from 2009-2015. The Lions then returned to the NPSL in 2016 and has been a part of the league ever since.
Kalamazoo FC will face the Lions at home at 7 p.m. on Friday and will be home again on Sunday for their first game in the Milk Cup against Force FC at 5:30 p.m.
