SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The CRC men's soccer team is putting their brand-new soccer facilities on display this weekend, when they play host to 13 of the top CCCAA men's programs. The three-day event kicks off Friday afternoon with four matches, and will conclude Sunday afternoon with a "points winner" being recognized on the showcase trophy. CRC will play three matches this weekend against teams from across northern California.

A grass warm-up area was installed beyond the south endzone, as well.
