A long-vacant Scottsdale Unified School District campus in southern Scottsdale may finally rise from the ashes with the help of the Valley’s professional soccer club.
The Phoenix Rising is in negotiations with the district to turn the former Tonalea Elementary campus into a practice facility for the team.
The USL Championship league team currently plays its home games about four miles away from the Tonalea site at Casino Arizona Stadium at Mclintock Drive and Loop 202.
“As one of the most successful professional soccer teams in North America playing in the USL Championship, Phoenix Rising needs to accommodate its growing fan base with a larger stadium, welcome visiting teams from around the world with more training sites for its expanding spring training professional soccer tournament, and provide for its thriving non-profit youth soccer organization with more fields,” said Jordan Rose, president of Rose Law Group.
