We want you...to join the Regiment!
Started in 1999, The Regiment is the official supporters group of the Charleston Battery. The Regiment's main goal is to elevate the atmosphere at Blackbaud stadium. We hold regular tailgates, organize trips to away games, create banners, and try to be "the twelfth man" for the players on the pitch. And at the end of the year, we fire up the grills, break out a few cold beverages, invite the players and staff and enjoy an afternoon of food and fun.
We also help various charitable causes and support our players off the field if they need it.
This season, you can become a Regiment member for as little as $20. That's right we dropped the price by $10 bucks this year. The regular membership package includes a Charleston Battery scarf, 10% discount at the Battery Pro Shop, discounts on away bus trips, tailgates, as well as the invite to the players picnic. The scarf and discount at the proshop (need a new jersey or t-shirt?) will more than pay for the membership cost and you're helping a good cause.
Already have a scarf? The Regiment offers a $40 premium kit that includes a Regiment logo polo shirt in your choice of black, red or yellow, as well as the 10% discount in the proshop, away bus trips, tailgates and the invite to the players picnic.
The Regiment has a table at each home match under the West Stands in Blackbuad Stadium. Come by and talk to one of the board members before the match or during half time. Or find "The Regiment" on Facebook. The Regiment does a majority of its communication about tailgates and other event there.
During the games you can find a majority of the Regiment members in section E10, waving flags, singing (or attempting to!) songs and cheering out boys onto victory! Do you have to stand in E10 if you join the Regiment? No, the Regiment want passionate fans throughout the 'Baud. So if find it hard to give up those midfield seats or enjoy the company around you, that is fine. You will still have the benefit of knowing you are helping support your local club.
Still not sure? Come by one of the Regiment meetings. The Regiment is now meeting at the newly opened Madra Rua Pub in Summerville. They meet the second Tuesday of each month at 7pm. Come by for a beer, see what it is all about and have a good time.
Convinced? Download this form, fill it out and either mail it to the address shown or bring it by the Regiment table before one of the Battery matches. We will get your package to you as soon as possible and hope you can join in the fun.
