NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - The Chivas of Guadalajara joined forces with our East Texas semi-pro team, the Texas Timberz, to host a free soccer clinic in Nacogdoches.

The Chivas of Guadalajara are a professional soccer team from Mexico.

The Texas Timberz say they're out in the community trying grow the sport in East Texas.

"Our team in East Texas could be for the little kids some day. We're opening the doors for them, and we're doing this so the community can see that the little ones coming up can have the same chance as us being on the team," said Jose Corpus, a player on the Texas Timberz.

The Texas Timberz are playing the Chivas of Guadalajara Wednesday, June 25th.
