Cary, NC — The popularity of the Carolina RailHawks continues to build in the Triangle area as soccer fans blossom. Good news, fans–the NASL (North American Soccer League) recently announced the team’s full Spring and Fall seasons, which contain 30 games total.
We are thrilled with our 2015 schedule and are excited to now set our sites on our afternoon home and league opener on April 4, 2015. Our organization is working hard to make 2015 another memorable one for North Carolina’s soccer fans.
The league format will continue to operate the same way it did last year. Playoff participants will be comprised of the winners of each season plus the two teams with the best overall records over the course of both seasons. The winners of the Spring and Fall seasons will host the semifinals with the top overall points leader getting the top seed.
The RailHawks roster currently consists of 11 players, including one goalkeeper (Hunter Gilstrap), three defenders (Conor Tobin, Daniel Scott and Austen King), four midfielders (Nazmi Albadawi, Tiyi Shipalane, Leo Osaki, and Neil Hlavaty), and three forwards (Nacho Novo, Daniel Jackson and Simone Bracalello). The RailHawks are expected to announce additional players in the coming days.
In addition to a very talented RailHawks roster, NASL teams across the country and Canada continue to sign and attract exciting players such as former Real Madrid & Spanish national team forward Raúl (New York Cosmos), current U.S. Men’s National Team player Miguel Ibarra (Minnesota United), Jacksonville Armada FC and former Colorado Rapids forward Jaime Castrillón, former Carolina RailHawks and New York Red Bulls midfielder Jonny Steele as well as former RailHawks & NASL Golden Boot Winner Brian Shriver (Tampa Bay Rowdies), in addition to many others.
Tickets are currently on sale for the upcoming season; visit the RailHawks website for more details.
