There are football matches that have to be played in small stadiums, on pitches in poor condition, with unkempt grass, and others even in stadiums made for other sports. As happened in the second division of the United States, where FC Tulsa and El Paso Locomotive played their USL championship game on a ballpark.
The match was played on Friday evening. There, as has been the case for several seasons, FC Tulsa hosted Oneok Field, home of the Tulsa Drillers, a Texas League baseball team.
The field, of course, was covered in many parts of the traditional baseball field turf. And in the match there was no luck for FC Tulsa, despite being local, as the team drew 2-2 against El Paso Locomotive and with great luck, thanks to a late goal that allowed them to reach parity .
Even though FC Tulsa has hosted this stadium for several seasons now, It’s still curious how players have to make transitions on parts that have grass and, others, dirt.
Although it can be risky, given the lack of a football pitch, FC Tulsa has no choice but to play there.
