Now More Than Ever!!
We must stand behind the team during this critical juncture. Having just learned that we will be without our captain due to WCQ thuggery and with our playoff hopes on the line, it is time to provide our side with an edge at home and on the road.
This Saturday’s match will be an emotional one to be sure, with a moment of silence to mark the passing of a special soccer pioneer, Betty D’Anjolell and the induction of Ben Olsen to join her in the Hall of Tradition.
DC United vs. New England Revolution
Saturday, Sept. 15th
So please spread the word and get your orders into Nicole at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Not only is the match on Saturday against the Revolution laden with all sorts of playoff permutations, but it will be chock full of special events. This is one match you DO NOT want to be late getting into the stadium for!!

Join the Tailgate Crew
We will have more details on the tailgate tomorrow, but we wanted to send out a call to arms!
Thea says she could use your help and you don’t even need to have the special skills and cutting chops that Chris displays game in and game out. She could just use a few extra hands (and smiles), so drop her a note at email@example.com
PPL Park will become RFK North Again
Over 100 supporters have already signed up for the PHILLY INVASION II and you don’t even have to wait for Saturday’s tailgate to jump on the THREE FREE buses! There’s still plenty of room for you and some buddies, so bring ‘em along for the ride.
Jimi would be happy to reserve your seat and/or ticket for what could be the make or break match next Thursday, so send him a missive at firstname.lastname@example.org
