Think you have what it takes to play professional soccer? Phoenix Rising FC wants to give you that opportunity.

The club announced Tuesday that it will hold professional tryouts Aug. 30 through Sept. 1 at the Phoenix Rising Soccer Complex in Scottsdale. Participants selected to try out will have a chance to play in front of Phoenix Rising front office and staff.

The tryouts will be by invitation only. Prospects are invited to submit an application here. Phoenix Rising will contact those invited to try out via email based on their soccer-playing background.

If invited, the fee for tryouts is $150 per person. That includes two guaranteed sessions and a third session for those invited to come back for the final day. The fee also includes a ticket to a future Phoenix Rising game and a Phoenix Rising t-shirt.

"Play well at our camp and you might find yourself with the opportunity of a lifetime -- to sign a contract to play professional soccer," Phoenix Rising says.
