The upcoming 2013 PDL season begins this May 4th as the LA Misioneros FC U23 take on the Fresno Fuego. As the season approaches, the coaching staff and team directors have been working on a tentative Pre-Season schedule to use in preparation for the PDL season.
"The PDL league games are completely different to any local, or Sunday league matches thus the reason we need to prepare our team, playing against similar level clubs and teams" said head coach Ever Morataya. " For this reason, the team director and I have been working on a tentative schedule against several teams from around Southern California".
The 2013 Pre-Season schedule for the LA Misioneros FC began this past Sunday February 24 as the Misioneros traveled to San Diego to take on the San Diego Boca, an NPSL team.
"The win at San Diego was a great opportunity to showcase some of the young and talented players we have been working with lately" says assistant coach Erik Garcia. "Boca proved to be a tough opponent, but our 3 - 0 victory showed that our young players will make a difference this upcoming PDL season".
The scheduled scrimmage games which have been confirmed to date include:

With a little over two (2) months before kickoff for the 2013 PDL season, the LA Misioneros FC will have a busy Pre-Season.

This news comes as the Franchise of the LA Misioneros FC was offered a deal for purchase from very well know ex-national Mexico players, Jorge Campos and Claudio Suarez.
