Two Matches on Opening Week for The Express

(TURLOCK, CA. November 2nd, 2017)—-The wait is over. Turlock Express will be in full effect for the 2017-18 MAJOR ARENA SOCCER LEAGUE in less than 24 hours hosting Eastern team, The Silver Knights from Syracuse, New York. The match is scheduled for kick off at 7:05 pm at Turlock Indoor Soccer located on 500 S. center st, Turlock Ca. 

If that wasn’t exciting enough for the opening week of The Express, the Turlock team will then travel Down south to Ontario, California on Sunday, November 5th. The Fury and Express will play an early game at 3pm at the Citizens Bank Arena. 

Friday night’s fortunes will consist of The Silver Knights coming down to Turlock for the first time ever. Turlock will have a combination of new faces and veterans on their roster while Syracuse made the big announcement of Nick Perera’s signing earlier this week.

Perera was a known starter for both west coast Pacific Division teams Ontario Fury and the San Diego Sockers. 

The addition on Perera to a highly competitive MASL team will guarantee an action packed match this Friday night. 

Friday night’s game will also be Turlock’s Cancer Awareness night in partnership with Emmanuel Cancer Center. All proceeds from the Express cancer shirts will go directly to the foundation. 

After Opening night, Turlock will leave Saturday morning to arrive at Southern California one day early to rest and prepare for the last match of the week. 

The last time Turlock and Ontario met on the field was Express last game of the season with the Fury securing a needed win to make playoffs. 

The Fury has resigned a majority of their elite squad from last season that made it far in the Pacific Division. The match will be broadcast on The MASL YouTube TV channel. 

Tickets for the November 3rd game at Turlock Indoor will be available for purchase online at or at the Door game day. As always follow the Express on all social media platforms to stay connected with the team’s weekly news and game updates.
