Just perusing the ebays today and noticed that Louisville City FC has recently announced via their website that the club intends to hold open tryouts on November 22 and 23 in advance of the 2015 season.
“Open tryouts?”, you might have asked yourself. Yes. Open tryouts. Believe it or not, this is a fairly common practice in lower-division US Soccer, and frankly, MLS teams sometimes scout these events just in case they might have missed a player in their own combines, etc. As we still really have no idea how many players LCFC will get from Orlando’s USL Pro castaways, this is a great opportunity for local talent (and out of town talent, I suppose) to show the club their stuff and try to make a pro roster.
Tryouts run from 9-11 both days, and since I don’t see anything on the LCFC website saying they’re closed to the public, feel free to go watch some dudes try out in the cold while you drink beer from a paper bag and harass them as warranted. Wait, don’t do that, that’s mean. The harassing part, anyway.
