Wellington, Florida - The PDL Palm Beach Pumas Franchise announces their new home venue at the Palm Beach International Polo Club stadium located in Wellington that elegantly seats over 1000 spectators.
The Pumas first home game is this Saturday, May 20th at 5:00pm. vs. the Bradenton Academics. Gates open at 3:30pm. All Youth 17 and younger are admitted for free while adult’s tickets are $7.00. Concessions will be provided by Gypsy Horse Irish Pub and Restaurant. Fans can meet Puma players after every home game at the Gypsy Horse.
The Pumas Founder, Bobby Lennon said, “We are very thankful to International Polo Club for sponsoring our program and supporting the local soccer community. I cannot think of a better venue to enjoy a soccer match. Having International Polo Club as our new home will enhance our game day presentation and the image of the entire United Soccer Leagues PDL family.”
Located in the heart of South Florida's legendary horse country, International Polo Club Palm Beach is a world-class polo club designed to showcase the finest the sport has to offer. Respect for the glorious South Florida setting was paramount in the club's design. Structures are positioned to capture prevailing breezes, modulate natural light with shade, and open magnificent vistas to the fields of play. The Pumas have the privilege of using this high-class facility for six games during the 2006 PDL season.
However, due to a last minute change, two of the Pumas home games will be moved to different venues because of the field maintenance schedule. On Saturday, May 27th the match vs. Raleigh Elite will be played at Village Park in Wellington at 6pm after the Florida State Cup Tournaments. On Saturday, June 10 at 7pm, the Pumas will host their arch rival the Cocoa Expos also at Village Park. These two games will be free to the public and concessions will be catered by Gypsy Horse Irish Pub and Restaurant.
Special Note: Please bring your old soccer gear to Pumas games to be distributed to disadvantaged children throughout Palm Beach County.
