Charleston Battery supporter groups The Regiment and Queen Anne’s Revenge rolled out the welcome mat Feb. 21, the first day of the 2015 Carolina Challenge Cup for fans of participating teams USL partners Houston Dynamo, New York City FC and Orlando City FC. The pre-game scene of  food and fun included soccer fans from Atlanta’s Terminus Legion – due to get an MLS franchise in 2017 – along with members of the American Outlaw chapters from the Holy City, Columbia and Savannah. Oh, and armed pirates. Avast, ye soccer-lubbin’ scallywags!
