25 Jul Stumptown Athletic Announces Inaugural Season Schedule
New pro soccer team to play four home, four away games in fall of 2019
MATTHEWS, NC – North Carolina’s new professional soccer club and team, Stumptown Athletic, announced its inaugural season schedule. The team will play four home and four away games against the seven other clubs competing in the new National Independent Soccer Association: San Diego 1904 FC, Cal United Strikers FC, Atlanta SC, Philadelphia Fury, Miami FC, Los Angeles and Oakland Roots SC. Two additional clubs, Chattanooga FC and Detroit City, will also play NISA teams in exhibition matches.
“We’re looking forward to bringing great professional soccer to the area,” said President and General Manager Casey Carr. “The South Charlotte area-including Matthews, Mint Hill, Stallings, Indian Trail-is a fast-growing region with a young, diverse population that is growing up playing soccer anywhere and everywhere they can – at parks, indoors, in their backyards, on playgrounds, on open fields and in the street. Stumptown Athletic is building on that local momentum while bringing pro soccer to more and more people.”
Stumptown Athletic will kick off its season Sept. 7 versus the Philadelphia Fury. The team’s first home game will be Sept. 28 against Miami FC. Three of the team’s four home games will be played at the CSA OrthoCarolina Soccer Complex in Pineville, with the final game at the Matthews Sportsplex.
