FC Propensity to Score

The Department of Economics intramural soccer team, FC Propensity to Score, was formed by IDEC students looking to relieve stress and bond outside the classroom. The team made it to the playoff finals in Spring 2019 and Fall 2019. 

While in-person intramural sports are paused right now to follow Covid-19 guidelines, we hope that Propensity to Score will return to the field this spring. Stay tuned for updates on the team.
