More than 60 players will participate in the 2013 NASL Combine taking place at historic Lockhart Stadium this weekend, Feb. 1-3. Among those players is former Barclays Premier League defender and French international Pascal Chimbonda.
Last season, nine players joined the NASL from the combine, including Fort Lauderdale Strikers midfielder Mark Anderson, who finished third in goals scored (11) and was the league-leader in shots attempted during the 2012 season. Anderson went from the NASL Combine to the Strikers to being named to the NASL Best XI team at the end of the 2012 season.
Here is the NASL Combine Schedule for any fans wishing to attend one or all of the games this weekend.
