Yesterday, The Regiment hosted Battery President Andrew Bell and Head Coach Mike Anhaeuser at the monthly Regiment meeting. Most of what was said was off the record but it was said that they are nearly ready to release their preseason schedule for matches other than the Carolina Challenge Cup. The Battery are waiting on one team to confirm the date and will release the entire schedule at once.
But news starting to spring up in press releases from two local colleges that they are playing the Battery.
Wednesday, March 16 at Charleston, SC
7:00 p.m. - Clemson at Charleston Battery
Clemson Press Release
Clemson has a good program over the years, producing several notable players including Johnny Wilson, Ian Fuller and US Men's National team players Oguchi "Gooch" Onyewu and Steward Holden. This will be a good test for the Battery.
