The USL Pro off-season is longer than most, which means that little events can seem bigger. Today brought the arrival of our 2013 Carolina Challenge Cup tickets, plus our season parking pass and information on our pending season tickets.
Of course, the excitement about these items is a bit like false-spring, given that once the CCC ends on Feb. 23 we’ll still have to wait until mid-April for the start of the actual 2013 season. The Battery’s first home date (against Antigua) isn’t until April 20th.
There’s some news in today’s mail, too: A season-ticket-holder meet-and-greet with Coach Anhaeuser and the team on Tuesday, March 12 at the Three Lions (noms and one free bev, plus discounts on pro-shop items). RSVP via the E-vite if you’re planning on going, and if you’re thinking about buying a season-ticket package this season and need another reason, well, here you go.
Add another match to your calendar: Battery host the Hammerheads in a pre-season championship rematch on Saturday, March 23 at 6 p.m. It doesn’t count in the standings, but it’s a paid-gate event. Season-ticket holders get in free.
