MASL International Challenge
The St. Louis Ambush will host the Major Arena Soccer League’s International Challenge match Friday, June 16 at 7:35 p.m. CT at the Family Arena. The match will feature players and All-Stars from across the league in a “USA versus The World” format.
Every MASL team will have the opportunity to nominate their players for this match and the International Challenge committee will select the rosters. This will be the second straight year for the International Challenge. In 2016, the Ontario Fury hosted an exhibition match between the USA All-Stars vs Mexico that saw a sold-out crowd of over 7,000 fans.
The June 16 All-Star match will be the second time the Family Arena has hosted such an event. The last time was February 29, 2004, when the USA All-Stars defeated the International All-Stars 10-1 in a Major Indoor Soccer League exhibition.
Leading up to this year’s International Challenge, the Ambush and Family Arena will host the 2017 MASL Player Combine on Friday, June 16 from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The Combine will give potential players from all over the chance to work out in front of coaches and team representatives from across the league, and have the chance to earn an invite to a preseason MASL camp. Four players from the combine will also be selected to participate in the International Challenge game that night. For more information and registration for the combine, visit stlambush.com or call the Ambush office at 636.477.6363.
