The Scouting Report
The Scorpions closed out 2014 with their first NASL championship, which for most teams would be a sufficient excuse to rest on their laurels. However, San Antonio’s dominance has continued even through the offseason. In February, the team edged out FC Dallas 2-1, scoring their first-ever victory against the MLS club. This month, the Lone Star interleague action continues—not with a game against an Amarillo elementary-school team, but with the inaugural edition of the Hill Country Derby, a spirited new rivalry with the Austin Aztex.
San Antonio Scorpions
Founded in 2010, the San Antonio Scorpions wasted no time digging their pincers into the North American Soccer League standings; in 2012, they finished first overall and advanced to the semi-finals. Two years later, they claimed their first league championship. Yet despite their quick success on the pitch, the Scorpions have arguably made a bigger impact off of it: all profits from the team’s operations go toward funding Morgan’s Wonderland, a colorful amusement park in Longhorn Quarry designed for people with (and without) special needs. The idea stems from team owner, businessman, and philanthropist Gordon Hartman, who builds support for Morgan’s Wonderland via the Scorpions’ “Soccer for a Cause” program. In 2012, the team’s efforts were noticed by Toyota, who committed to sponsoring a new stadium. Completed for the 2013 season, the result of that commitment currently boasts a seating capacity of 8,000 with plans to expand as large as 18,000, so long as fan support continues to grow enough and the chair saplings take root in the concrete.
