On Friday evening, October 22, 80 players and parents made their way to Hartford, CT, to support our founder Christian Fuchs and his team Charlotte Independence as they faced Hartford Athletic in the USL Championship.
It was a great experience for all FSA Family members who headed 2 1/2 hours north to cheer for our Head Fox. Our players were able to come pitch side before the game and experience the atmosphere.
Kick-off was at 7 PM and the atmosphere in the stadium was incredible. Dillon Stadium was almost sold out, with 86 Foxes amongst them who screamed wholeheartedly to support Charlotte Independence.
And all their support paid off. Charlotte went into the half time break trailing by one goal to nothing. In the second period they turned the game around and won the game 2-1, very much to likeness of our FSA
On top of the game, all our players were allowed to go onto field for a picture opportunity with Christian Fuchs and some other Charlotte Independence players.
Overall it was an amazing experience for our players and an additional boost for them to work even harder. Maybe one day we will go to Hartford to support another Fox giving its best in the USL Championship.
We would also like to express our appreciation to Hartford Athletic who were amazing in arranging such a great experience for our academy.
