The Sacramento Republic F.C will host their second "friendly" of the year when they face the Rangers Football Club of Scotland. Sacramento faced off against Club Atlas earlier this month and lost a very close match by the score of 2-1. Rangers F.C. bring with them some association football action that will give the young Republic team some much needed experience when they return to USL Pro league play on July 27th when they play the Pittsburgh Riverhounds. The next three home games will feature some of the finest football action around.

The Rangers F.C. was founded in 1872 and they bring with them the prestige of classic association football. They finished the 2013-2014 season as league champions and they are starting 2014-2015 off with a series of "friendlies" in Scotland and North America. Currently they are 1-1-1 in the preseason. The Rangers lost their first game on the tour to the Ventura County Fusion by the score of 3-1. The team is lead by manager Alistair "Ally" McCoist, a former association football player for the Ranger F.C. who scored 290 goals in his career and has won two League championships during his tenure as the club's manager.

This game will be another chance for the Republic F.C. to hone their skills when they play this first of three "friendlies" with U.K. association football clubs. Monday night Sacramento will host the Premier League's West Bromwich Albion F.C. The "Baggies" as they're affectionately called by their fans will bring to the table another solid challenge for the Republic. Kick-off for that game is scheduled for 7:30 P.M. and some tickets are available at http://www.ticketmaster.com/sacramento-republic-fc-vs-west-bromwich-sacr....

Tonight's game is scheduled for a 7:30 P.M. kick-off and all ticket holders for that and any other game that is held during the California State Fair at Cal Expo will receive free admission to said Fair but only on the day of the game. Saturday night's game will be "Caped Crusader Night". The starting players along with their child escorts will be wearing special customized capes during the pregame festivities and they will be auctioned off for charity with all proceeds going to http://www.capes4heroes.com. Fans are also encouraged to dress up like superheroes in honor of the occasion.
