If you haven’t jumped on the Louisville City FC bandwagon yet, come on aboard – there’s plenty of room.
The pro team has given our Metro Louisville/Southern Indiana community much to cheer about. Here are three more reasons why the Boys in Purple are the favorites of fans and nonprofits, too.
Did you know… Louisville City FC, the area’s only fully professional soccer club, started in 2015 and is a member of the United Soccer League – now sanctioned Division 2 by U.S. Soccer – only one level below Major League Soccer? The USL includes 33 teams across the country, some of them independent and others acting as close affiliates with MLS clubs.
Did you know… LouCity offers a simple way to give back to charitable causes?
The Louisville City FC Give & Go Program is a fundraising opportunity for local 501(c)3 charitable, educational, scientific, literary and cruelty-preventing organizations in Kentuckiana to get into excitement of attending a home game and raise funds at the same time. The program is also open to for-profit companies and individuals to purchase and donate tickets to worthy causes. This past season, LouCity will have made up to 5,000 single-game tickets available to charitable organizations to sell to the public at a special nonprofit rate. For each ticket sold, a contribution of $4 is made to non-profit organizations. For-profit organizations and individuals can also purchase match tickets and donate them for selected or designated nonprofits or groups to use. Learn more at louisvillecityfc.com.
Did you know… Tom Farmer, president of LouCity’s supporter group The Coopers, went from soccer cynic to one of the team’s most vocal fans? Want to join the growing regiment? Go to LouisvilleCoopers.com.
LouCity’s regular season ends 7:30 p.m. Oct. 13 when they take on Indy Eleven at Slugger Field.
