Outlook: The 2018 NPSL Regular Season is set to begin and Orange County FC will host Oxnard Guerreros FC at its new home: Championship Soccer Stadium at Orange County Great Park in Irvine, California.
Paul Caligiuri returns for a second season as coach of OCFC and he will be joined on the sidelines by new assistant coach Cyrus Navabpour.
OCFC has added Cody Shelton and Dakota Collins to its roster through its second team OCFC 2 of the UPSL.
Shelton was a member of Riverside Coras last season and Dakota Collins has played professionally for Sacramento Republic of the USL.
Collins led OCFC 2 in goals during the 2017 Fall UPSL Season and he has also had spells overseas in Croatia and Austria.
OCFC defeated Oxnard Guerreros FC in both meetings last season and Paul Caligiuri’s men will be looking to start the season with a victory.
Orange County FC was a force last season in the Southwest with 65 goals and two play-off victories that saw them go all the way to the NPSL Regional Final.
Last season was very successful for the entire Orange County FC organization, but the bar has already been set higher for 2018.
