In fact the Aztex will face the strong Puerto Rican contingent in a friendly game tomorrow April 3rd in Austin. It will be the last scrimmage game for the Aztex before their debut in the USL-1 against the Minnesota Thunder in their regular-season opener on April 18th.
For the Islanders this will be the last scrimmage game before the return leg of the CONCACAF Champions League semifinals against Cruz Azul on April 7th in Mexico City. The Islanders USL-1 regular-season opener is also on April 18th, at home in the Juan Ramón Loubriel, in what some will imagine to be the “what if 2nd leg of the 2008 USL Finals” against the Vancouver Whitecaps.
After the fan outcry due to the USL controversy last year by awarding the 1-game final to Vancouver (over the regular-season Commissioner’s Cup winner Puerto Rico Islanders), the USL changed the Finals format going forward to include two legs (home and away), just ilke in the USL quarter and semi finals.
