DENTON (1080 KRLD) - A new minor league soccer team is coming to North Texas.

The Denton Diablos expect to begin play in April. Co-founder Damon Gochneaur says the team has a lot of work to do, like getting players, a place to play, and fighting the fact that most Americans still really don't care about soccer.

"Why the game won't grow is honestly because of failing to make the game more accessable, more excitable, and more relatable."

There is already one minor league team in the city, FC Denton. The Diablos have no players on their roster yet, and will hold open tryouts in the fall.
