This Saturday, June 26th, RCU returns to Madison City Schools Stadium after two weeks on the road and will face Chattanooga FC beginning at 7:30 p.m. Chattanooga sits atop the southeast division with a 3-0-1 record while RCU is in 2nd with a record of 2-1-1. This is a must win for RCU, as it would put them in 1st place among the division so we hope to see everyone out there to show their support.
Chattanooga is roughly the same size of Huntsville, but at their last game vs. Atlanta FC they had over 2,900 in attendance. RCU team owner and President, Andy Zorovich, says, "I'd like to put out a personal challenge to our community to out-do Chattanooga's fans by getting 3,000 people at this game. It is also Youth Night at the game, any child/youth wearing their soccer jersey to the game will enter for FREE! Also, the first 250 fans into the stadium will receive an RCU hand clapper noise maker.
In addition, RCU will donate $50/goal to the Royal Family Kids Club (RFKC) of Madison and local businesses will be matching that, including: TopLine Tires, Donato's Pizza, Huntsville Fitness Equipment, Eagle Collision, Netskate, Botts Innovative Research, and Southern Vision Systems, Inc. RFKC is the nation's leading network of camps for abused, neglected, and abandoned children. The RFKC-Madison program is a week long summer camp serving children that have been placed in the custody of Madison County Department of Human Resources. Children participating in the program are ensured to get all of the attention they deserve due to the camp's staff/camper ratio of 2 staff per child. All staff are volunteers and all funds donated to RFKC-Madison go directly to the cost of operating the local camp, including facilities and activities, such as parties, arts and crafts, games, and lake day. The goal of RFKC is "creating positive memories to last a lifetime."
We hope you join us for this great cause, as well as to celebrate youth night in what's sure to be an exciting game vs. Chattanooga FC. Tickets are available at the gate or at www.rocketcityunited.com.
