IronPigs, Reading Phillies, Phantoms, SteelHawks, SteelFC….
Something had to give. And, despite the fact that I’ve enjoyed the USL games with SteelFC, I found myself missing more games than I was getting to, and had to give up my season package this year. However, that doesn’t mean I won’t be going to games! So, despite the fact that the game schedule had been out for a while, I was really looking forward to the match times and the single-game sales for this year. And, here it is as I’ve copied the full press release below.
I’m not a big fan of the facility there at Goodman Stadium; however, there is quite a nice tailgate scene. Anyone wanting to go down and do some tailgating please let me know and we can get together!
