2012 Preseason

“It’s Time to Get Real” – 2012 Real Salt Lake Preseason

Real Salt Lake has finalized plans for the club’s 2012 preseason schedule, which, for the second consecutive year, will include a pair of training camps based in Arizona across February and March. The Claret-and-Cobalt will officially kick off their eighth season on Wednesday, January 25, when players will report to Salt Lake City for entrance physicals in advance of five days of training and fitness testing on the Wasatch Front. Real Salt Lake will head to the Phoenix area for the start of its opening leg of spring training on Jan. 31, spending the next two weeks training in the familiar surroundings of the Reach 11 Sports Complex in Scottsdale (Feb. 1-8) and the Grande Sports World facility outside of Casa Grande (Feb. 9-14), the latter serving as the home of the RSL-Arizona Academy. Following a brief return to Utah in mid-February, it’s back south to Arizona for another two-week stay, this time for RSL’s first-ever visit to Tucson for the FC Tucson Desert Diamond Cup preseason tournament that will round out the squad’s preseason calendar.

Desert Diamond Cup

Real Salt Lake is proud to participate in the FC Tucson Desert Diamond Cup, expanded this year from a one-game exhibition to a two-week, four-team round-robin competition that will pit RSL against fellow MLS sides LA Galaxy, New York Red Bulls and New England Revolution.
