Home Schedule Released for Ohio Vortex
CANTON, OH - October 1, 2010 – The Ohio Vortex of the Professional Arena Soccer League (PASL-Pro) are pleased to announce their home schedule for the 2010/2011 season.
The Vortex enters their second season in PASL-Pro after an 8-8 record in 2009/2010 and a third place finish in the Eastern Division. The team had a busy offseason: conducting camps and clinics, making public appearances, and playing in exhibitions across NE Ohio.
Several Vortex players actually found themselves playing professionally outdoors during the late spring and summer in the United Soccer Leagues (USL). Defender Michael Pertz made six appearances with the Real Maryland Monarchs (USL-2) before training with Crystal Palace Baltimore (USL-1). Defender Louis Rolko would log 1,434 minutes over 19 games with the USL-2 Pittsburgh Riverhounds.
The Vortex, which operates as a non-profit organization, remains committed to providing affordable family entertainment that at the same time benefits local charities. A strong and stable ownership group combined with a unique business model allows the team to donate a portion of ticket revenue to non-profits across NE Ohio.
