The Western New York Flash today announced they will play their scheduled July 9 home game at 7pm against the Seattle Reign at Frontier Field.
Frontier Field has a strong history of hosting top level soccer games, including the United States Women’s National Team’s exhibition game against Iceland in 2004 that attracted nearly 15,000 fans.
“This is an extremely exciting opportunity to bring pro soccer at its highest level back to Frontier Field,” said Rich Randall, General Manager of the Flash. “It’s a special place that will bring back countless memories for soccer fans in Rochester. I’d like to personally thank the Red Wings staff for being so accommodating.”
Frontier Field has been the home for many soccer games since its inception in 1996, however this will be the first since 2005.
A conflict at Rhinos Stadium on the 9th forced the move.
“We know that there are a lot of people with some great memories of watching soccer at Frontier Field and this will give them a chance to rekindle those memories,” said Naomi Silver, Red Wings President/CEO/COO. “We were happy to lend a hand to the Flash when their stadium was not available for this date.”
