The Fayetteville Fury Indoor Soccer League is set to kick off its highly anticipated 2024 season, bringing fervor and excitement to the Crown Coliseum for a thrilling third year. The league, which features both men's and women's professional indoor soccer teams, promises an action-packed series of matches from January to May 2024.

“The team has been preparing tirelessly, and we're eager to showcase our hard work on the field. The home openers are going to be incredibly exciting, and we can't wait to see our fans cheering us on” said General Manager Al Florez in a press release. 

At the conclusion of league play, a postseason tournament will crown champions in both the Men’s and Women’s Divisions. The regular season champions in both divisions will secure automatic berths in the postseason championship match. The teams finishing second and third in the regular season will battle it out in a semi-final clash, vying for the opportunity to advance to the championship game.

Owner Phil Lin expressed enthusiasm for the upcoming season in a press release, “We’re thrilled to enter our third year and continue to bring top-tier indoor soccer to Fayetteville. The community's support has been instrumental in our growth, and we aim to deliver an electrifying season ahead.”

The Fury also announced their new NISL Head Coach Rodrigo Byrne. Rodrigo Byrnes’s journey began in the nurturing grounds of Sport Boys in Peru, where the foundation of his passion for football was laid. His skills and dedication soon elevated him to the reserves of Atlante in Mexico's Primera A, followed by a stint with the Pumas reserves, where he continued to hone his craft. 

The 12-game league schedule, comprising six home games and six away games, will commence from January to March. The Fayetteville Fury will mark their home opener on Saturday, Jan. 13, with an enthralling opening match against Albany Acres at the Crown Coliseum.
