Will play San Diego Sockers, one of the Western Division favorites

San Diego is one of the favorites to win the Western Division, according to Michael Lewis at MASLsoccer.com. Tacoma was 4-7 last year and finished in sixth place when it played every game on the road as the ShoWare Center was unavailable due to COVID-19 restrictions.
