Semi-Professional Soccer Kicks Into High Gear in Asheville

Asheville City Soccer Club

Bringing a community-driven semi-professional soccer experience to Western North Carolina, Asheville City Soccer Club continues the region’s history of love and support for the world’s game by offering up another season of unique excitement in the heart of Downtown Asheville. Asheville City SC, which saw an incredible outpouring of community support for its inaugural men’s team in 2017, will debut its women’s team as it kicks off its 2018 season, truly bringing to life its “Two Teams, One City” motto.

The club – proudly co-sponsored by Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty and Mosaic agent (and Asheville City SC women’s head coach) Stacey Enos – will start things off with a 2018 season launch party at Hi-Wire’s Big Top (2 Huntsman Place) Thursday, April 19, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Fans will have a chance to meet and mingle with Asheville City SC players and staff. There will also be soccer pool, giveaways, speeches and special guests.

Sport Your Support for Asheville Soccer!

Asheville City Soccer ClubAsheville City SC is offering fans a new home jersey season ticket for the 2018 season, which will be unveiled and distributed at the launch party. Not only does the jersey give fans entry to all home games for both the men's and women's teams, it also allows them the opportunity to proudly display their team support anytime they wear it. Fans who purchase the season ticket option will also have an exclusive entry gate, with no lines. Of course, fans can also buy a ticket at the door for any game. And all kids 5 years old and under get in free with an accompanying adult.

Asheville City SC will play all home games at Memorial Stadium, bordering South Slope in Downtown Asheville. The stadium, built in 1925 to serve as a regional athletic and special events facility, stands adjacent to McCormick Field, home of the Asheville Tourists. It has seen action as the home field of the Asheville Splash women’s semi-professional soccer team (2002-2004) and the Asheville Grizzlies semi-pro football team. With last year’s men’s soccer club debut, the stadium contained an average 2,000 loyal and loud fans per game.
