The Greater Nevada Field is a unique shared space that houses the Reno Aces baseball team and Reno’s forthcoming soccer team.

During last night’s test run, international clubs squared off in a friendly match. Standing among 1000’s of fans Aces President, Eric Edelstein (ed-uhl-steen), says the turnout shows how much local interest there is in the sport.

“By looking at the crowd and seeing how many folks are here tonight, there is a soccer culture already in Reno and we’re just gonna give them a place to unite.”
