The Charleston Battery facebook page hinted that "an exciting announcement" about the 2011 Carolina Challenge Cup should be out by the end of this week. If it is the announcement of the teams involved it would make it the earliest the week long tournament has been announced, allowing more time for visiting supporters to schedule and plan for a great week of soccer.
Maybe a rematch of the 2004 and 2010 US Open Cup opponents, the Chicago Fire?
Outside of the actual matches, expect some supporter socializing after a long off-season with The Regiment hosting some great tailgates and what will be the third annual Happy Hooligan's pub crawl.
Regardless, it should be a great time with the chance to see some great soccer at the 'Baud and look to No Quarter to bring you a run down once the teams are announced!
