TACOMA, WA – The Tacoma Stars have announced the return of veteran Chase Hanson for the 2018-19 Major Arena Soccer League season. As per team and league policies, terms of the agreement were not released. Hanson was among team leaders with a .429 shooting percentage last season. Along with four assists, Hanson picked up six goals on just 14 shots.

The Federal Way native and Seattle University alum has appeared in 60 MASL games in his career with 25 total points (12G-13A). 21 of Hanson’s appearances came last season.

Head coach Darren Sawatzky is thrilled with the return of Hanson and had this to say. “Chase is a local player and he has been as steady as can be for us since we launched the 2.0 pro version of the Tacoma Stars.   He is a great pro and he gets better with each season.  I look forward to his leadership and continued competitive fervor in the coming months.” 

The Stars are back December 1st with a schedule which has been expanded over last season. Tacoma is set to host 12 regular-season matches.
