The first leg of the California Cup in week one? Insanity! cried the Gold Coast fans as they opened their schedules. The season opener is already full of excitement and full of expectations, but add in the value of this match being against the club's biggest rival, and you're gonna need ambulances standing by at the stadium for panic attacks. The Suns have re-built the roster and filled it with the likes of Jozy Altidore, Kennedy Igboananice, Brek Shea, and Gabby Torres. Also the Suns are high on their Designated Players in Nagbe and MPG. "We feel we have built a strong side and are looking to be in the top of the BSL standings." said a club spokesperson. Facing Union S.C. is never an easy task and that side has high expectations as well. "This is what you play for. You play to beat your rivals."
