Taos Eco Park’s 4th Annual NCAA Club Soccer Showcase Promises To Inspire


The Town of Taos made a huge commitment to the future of soccer in the region when they partnered with Taos Municipal School District to create the FIFA-rated Taos Eco Park, the highest-altitude training facility in the country at 7,000 feet.

Created to strengthen the community and provide a state-of-the art complex where youth and adults can find a positive outlet and maintain a healthy lifestyle, the Eco Park is still delivering on that mission as they proudly host Men’s NCAA soccer this Saturday, April 5th with a series of games that promises to excite and thrill with world-class competition.

The excitement begins at 11:00 am when third-ranked nationally University of New Mexico Lobos take on the Pioneers of Denver University.

Following that at 1:00 pm, 2005, 2010 and 2012 NCAA national champs Fort Lewis College Skyhawks take on the Grizzlies of Adams State University.

Immediately thereafter at 3:00pm, the Skyhawks get right back to work against the Rio Rapids ’96 Reds SC to keep the action rolling.

Finally, it’s the Rapids turn to go back-to-back when they go against Adams State at 5:00 pm for the last game of the day.

For those that can’t wait for Saturday, or want to catch a glimpse of what’s to come, the Lobos of UNM will take the field for practice from 6:40-7:30 on Friday, to set the stage for the following day.


While all the games promise to provide spectacular viewing, there’s a potential dramatic showdown looming in two weeks: UNM head coach Jeremy Fishbein will take on his former team of Fort Lewis on April 19th at 1:00 pm, in what promises to be an emotionally-charged match sure to entertain.

General Admission is $5. There will be a small concessions stand, raising funds for the JV boys soccer uniforms. Taos Eco Park is located at 940 Salazar Road.
