MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Memphis Americans, a professional indoor soccer franchise, announced its new head coach during a news conference Wednesday.

Corey Adamson will the team’s head coach and will also be taking the field.

Adamson played for the St. Louis Ambush of the Major Arena Soccer League and has a relationship with Memphis Americans President and Owner Andrew Haines, who used to own the Ambush.   

Adamson became a free agent last season and got a taste of coaching in Orlando. Now he’s excited to take on the role full-time and build a team here in Memphis.

“One of the nice things about indoor soccer is we can be more involved in the community. We can be out there and make relationships with players, families, with businesses,” said Adamson. “That’s what I did in St. Louis, that’s what I plan to do here, and that’s what I plan from a player’s standpoint is to make sure that everybody wants to come to these games and they know who they’re coming to cheer for.” 

The club is hoping to get tryouts going in the next few weeks.

The team says its home will be at the Landers Center in Southaven, Mississippi with the inaugural 2021-2022 season kicking off in December. The organization includes a women’s and men’s team that both compete in the National Indoor Soccer League.

The Memphis Americans will play 12 home games and 12 away games and home games are a doubleheader, with both teams taking the field.
