The Scouting Report
As the 2014 spring season heats up, the Scorpions are poised to sting, perched in fifth place in the NASL after splitting their first two games of the season with a win and a loss. The club will look to exceed last year’s successful spring campaign, when they climbed to third place with a 6–2–4 record. Matches against the RailHawks and the Strikers—ranked third and fourth in the league, respectively—give the Scorpions a chance to ascend the standings without having to craft a pulley system with the laces of their cleats.
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. 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.
