A few months before Sacramento Republic FC officially hits the pitch, 34 invited players are taking to the practice field just outside Davis hoping to make the squad.

“It’s a good mix of players,” said Predrag “Preki” Radosavljevic, head coach, who believes soccer in the United States continues to grow and the next positive step will happen right here in Sacramento.

Team president Warren Smith tells FOX40 the final negotiations between the club and Cal Expo will wrap up in the next couple of weeks solidifying the 8,000 seat stadium as the venue for Republic’s games.

Players trying out for the team included Sacramento-area college graduates.
