Tickets are hot for Republic FC-Harrisburg final

[USL PRO] A new USL PRO champion will be crowned Saturday when expansion Sacramento Republic FC, the No. 2 seed, hosts the No. 8 seed Harrisburg City Islanders in front of a sellout crowd at Bonney Field. Tickets for midfield seats were being offered for as much as $249.50 on resale site StubHub even though the game will be broadcast locally on Channel 31.

Republic FC set a league record for regular-season attendance as 158,107 fans attended games at Hughes Stadium and the club’s permanent home at 8,000-seat Bonney Field.

Republic FC is led by all-league midfielder Rodrigo Lopez, whose hat trick in the last 22 minutes led a furious rally that produced a 3-2 win over LA Galaxy II in the semifinals. Sacramento’s top scorer is Tommy Stewart with 11 goals.

On defense, Jake Gleeson, who started for the Portland Timbers in their 6-0 win over Alpha United in the Concacaf Champions League on Wednesday, was a finalist for USL PRO Goalkeeper of the Year, while former Columbus Crew defender Nemanja Vukovic was named Defender of the Year.

The City Islanders started off the 2014 season with only two wins in their first 10 games but recovered to climb into the top eight. They have a strong Philadelphia Union influence as they should start three players on loan from the MLS club -- Richie Marquez, Antoine Hoppenot and Jimmy McLaughlin.

Harrisburg is one of the youngest teams in USL PRO. The average age of its likely starters is less than 24.
