With anticipation for the first match in New Mexico United’s brief history reaching a fever pitch, the club is set to announce several more player signings before the first whistle blows on March 9. However, the core of the group has coalesced over the last eight months, and the inaugural roster has largely been set.
With an average age of 25, the club’s players fall just under the average age of 25.3 of players in the USL Championship as a whole, according to soccer statistics website Transfermarkt. 6 players have logged MLS minutes (David Estrada, Devon Sandoval, Sam Hamilton, Chris Wehan, Ethen Sampson, Justin Schmidt), while all but a few have prior USL experience.
