Clarke back as coach, US Nats presale tickets & sin city gets soccer

Former FC Dallas coach Colin Clarke has a new home with USL First Division team the Virginia Beach Mariners. This marks Clarke's return to the USL where he previously coached the Richmond Kickers and the San Diego Flash.

Clarke was able to rebuild the FC Dallas program during his three years with the club, however left with no silverware.

The Mariners had a good run of play in 2003, but have failed to do much since. Last year they tied for the 9th spot (out of 12) in the division and dropped out of the US Open Cup in the third round after losing to Real Salt Lake in extra time.

Good news for Mariners fans, all three years Clarke spent as a USL coach resulted in his teams making the playoffs.

Meanwhile, back in Dallas, Hoops Nation members and season ticket holders can purchase presale tickets for the US vs. Guatemala match today. Hoops Nation members should have got an email while ticket holders should have got a phone call.
