The New York Cosmos announced on Tuesday that the club will hold five open tryouts for soccer players. Each one will happen in a different borough of the City, and is open to anyone aged 16 or older.

The coaching staff will select at least one participant from each tryout to join the team for a preseason trial. Players may only register for one of the tryouts.

“We know there is plenty of talent in New York City,” Cosmos head coach Giovanni Savarese said. “Everywhere you go, no matter the time of year, you can find good games and strong players in every borough. This is an opportunity for amateur players that almost never happens and we hope they can take advantage of it.”

Here is the schedule for the open tryouts:

Saturday, April 13; Brooklyn – Verrazano Sports Complex, 4–6 p.m.

Saturday, April 20; Queens Flushing Meadows Park Field 1, 1–3 p.m.

Sunday, April 21; Bronx Macombs Dam Park, 12–2 p.m.

Saturday, April 27; Staten Island – Corporal Thompson Park, 2–4 p.m.

Saturday, May 4; Manhattan – Pier 40, 8–10 p.m.
