GARCIA TO COMPETE IN eCUP

Jonah Garcia will represent Minneapolis City in the Lower League eCup, a massive FIFA Tournament that includes representatives of NPSL, USL2, UPSL and premier USASA clubs and their supporter groups.

Garcia, who plays as a centerback and widely recognized as one of City’s top performers on the field last season, is also handy with the controller. He finished in the Top 100 of the Americas XBox Winter Tournament and looks to make an impact on this tournament as well.

Favoring a 4-2-3-1 and comfortable both on the counter and playing a Pep-like possession game, it’s Garcia’s 1-on-1 ability that make him a dangerous opponent. Woe to the defender who doesn’t have cover when Garcia is on the ball and driving into the box.

All games will be broadcast on the club’s Twitch channel (CLICK HERE to check it out and follow) and will include a pre-game show and live broadcast with Jon Bisswurm and Nate Morales on the call. The duo, who are behind the People’s Pitch Podcast and the gameday PA antics, are as lovable and ill-prepared as ever.
