This weekend sees the Battery with two matches. One away on Friday night and one at home on Saturday night.
Friday nights away match is against Wilmington Hammerheads. This match will be broadcast live on Fox Soccer Channel and there is a Watch Party hosted by the Regiment to watch the match at the Madra Rua in North Charleston. The Game kicks off at 8pm but some of us will start congregating there around 7. Come on down, support your local team and get some food and drinks at a pub that has been very supportive of Battery and for that matter all soccer fans!
Saturday, the Battery will be home against the Pittsburgh Riverhounds. It is Toy's for Tots night and if you bring a NEW and UNWRAPPED toy, you will receive FREE admission. Also there will be a Teddy Bear toss at half time so bring out your stuff animal but try to wait til halftime to throw them (we know sometimes the refs can be tempting targets!)
The Regiment will also be firing up the grills around 5:30pm near the East Stand Entrance! Come join the Battery Supporters Group for some grub (looks like Hot Dogs and whatever others bring) and a pre- match bevvie or two and support the Battery!
Also kicking off at 9pm that night the USA will play Mexico at the Rose Bowl in LA (hearing it is already sold out) in the Championship match of the Gold Cup. I know the Three Lions will have it on but if you are headed back downtown, check out O'Malley's on King Street or head over to Madra Rua in North Charleston.
Finally, the Regiment have set a date for the Player Appreciation Picnic. It will be August 14 so if you want to go and haven't renewed your Regiment membership for 2011 yet, there is still time. More details about the picnic out in the next couple weeks.
