vs. Fresno FC
Kickoff – 7:30 p.m. at ONEOK Field
The Tulsa Roughnecks FC return to ONEOK Field for the first time in nearly a month when it hosts Fresno FC on Saturday, July 28. It will be Scarf Night with the first 1,000 fans entering through the Arvest Gate receiving “Vamos Tulsa” scarves courtesy of Tedford and Associates, FOX23 and Mix96.5. Kickoff for the match is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in downtown Tulsa.
In addition, kids will have an opportunity to sharpen their soccer skills with the Roughnecks players in a Youth Soccer Clinic. The Arvest Gate will open at 6:00 p.m. for the Youth Clinic and scarf giveaway, and it will run from 6:15 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Saturday’s match will mark the second and final meeting of the regular season between the Roughnecks and Fresno FC, a USL expansion team. On April 18, the two sides played to a 2-2 draw as the Roughnecks netted the tie goal in second-half stoppage time.
The game is the first of three straight home matches for the Roughnecks and will mark the return of Juan Pablo Caffa to Tulsa. Caffa spent the 2017 USL season with the Roughnecks, scoring nine goals. The free-kick specialist has missed six matches this season due to injury, but has still scored seven times.
It will be TRFC’s fifth match under new head coach Michael Nsien. Tulsa has gone 1-1-2 in the previous four games.
The match will mark the Tulsa debut of new Roughnecks player Isaac Diaz. Diaz came on as a second-half substitute in last weekend’s match, playing a role in Tulsa’s second goal.
