Message from Rowdies Chairman & CEO Bill Edwards:
We’ve recently focused on our push to join Major League Soccer, but it’s time to shift gears and prepare for the upcoming 2017 United Soccer League season. Unlike previous seasons, this year you will see a great variety of opponents come to Al Lang Stadium with 15 teams in the Eastern Conference alone. It’s important that you’re in the stands to show them why Al Lang Stadium is our house!
We’ve built a tremendous team that has a mixture of returning veterans like Joe Cole, Georgi Hristov and Matt Pickens, and new additions like Damion Lowe, Leo Fernandes, Luke Boden, Darwin Jones and Alex Morrell. Under the leadership of Head Coach Stuart Campbell, we’ve established a strong squad that I believe is the best we’ve ever had.
With your passion in the stands and the talent on the field, I know this will be our year. This is the year we add another championship to our history and bring the USL cup to Tampa Bay.
With Major League Soccer watching us, it’s time to show them how great Tampa Bay’s appetite for soccer is. Let’s fill Al Lang Stadium and together bring a MLS team to Tampa Bay.
Bring your family, your friends and even your coworkers. I want to know that all of Tampa Bay is ready to bring #MLS2StPete and buying single-game tickets is another way to show me that!
See everyone at the March 25 home opener against Orlando City B!
