MLS may already be underway, but affiliate league USL is still gearing up for their season, which begins at the end of the month.
Local USL team Orange County Blues announced on Friday they will spend a week beginning on Sunday in preseason training at the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Ore. The Blues, who wear Nike kits (in fact, Nike is a sponsor of the league), will train at the Bo Jackson Sports Center there and take advantage of the facilities.
According to the club, they are in lofty company in going to Nike HQ:
The Blues are believed to be the first @USL team to train at Nike WHQ. Man. City and Barcelona have trained there in the past.— OC Blues FC (@OCBluesFC) March 6, 2015
The Blues will be documenting their time in Oregon on various social media platforms, so you can check out coverage on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat over the next week.
