The Massive earned two hard fought road points against Vancouver and New England in week 6. While we were hoping for better results, two points when the team has to travel cross continent against two very good teams isn’t that bad. Glorious days are coming however as the Crew have a two week home stand starting with Orlando City SC April, 18th at 7:30pm.
This will be the first of three regular season meetings between the Crew and expansion side Orlando City. The two teams meet up in Orlando’s USL incarnation in the 2014 Disney Pro Soccer Classic, a 4-4 back and fourth affair, on the way to the Black and Gold’s preseason trophy in that tournament.
Orlando sits 3rd on 8pts in the East with a 2-2-2 record. Like Crew SC they are a team that values possession and they are the top passing team in the young MLS season. They feature 2007 FIFA Player of the Year Kaka and US international Brek Shea who is famous for wearing a dead chicken on his head for a year; at least that’s what I think that was.
Nordecke tickets are available in the webstore for this match or to reserve and pay at the tailgate, please email email@example.com. Tickets can be picked up under the Crew Union Tent in the mega-tailgate area. Tickets are now sold out for this match.
The Ole Farts return for another catered tailgate this game as they will be providing chicken wings and fries for all to enjoy. If you want to bring a side dish to share with the group, you’re more then welcome to do so. Also remember to bring your 2015 Crew Union Cup as North High Brewing beer will return for this match for all members to enjoy.
The tailgate will start about 3 pm and tickets must be picked up by 6:30 pm. After 6:30, webstore purchased tickets will be taken to will call and reserved unpaid for tickets will be released for general sale. At 7 pm the Nordecke March to the Match begins as all supporters march as one from the tailgate to the Nordecke.
After the game, join us at 4th Street Bar and Grill where hopefully we’ll be enjoying Toto, some victory juice, and a few post match libations.
Glory to Columbus!!!
