To all Charleston Battery fans and supporters,
Last night's result in Nashville ended what was an exciting 2019 USL Championship season. The boys in Black and Yellow fought to the very end and put in a gutsy effort to finish the year, but without the support from our loyal fans, none of it would be possible. From our U.S. Open Cup run to Jarad's match-winning penalty against Ottawa, you, the fans, were backing us all the way. Our final home match at MUSC Health Stadium was one we'll never forget, even though it was a little rainy (nothing we aren't used to at this point), and the support was even better.
While we won't be lifting our fifth championship trophy this season, we are excited about the successes that lie ahead, both on and off the pitch for the Charleston Battery. The Battery will continue its quest for a 5th star in the 2020 USL Championship season at the Patriots Point Soccer Stadium, home of the College of Charleston Cougars and now the Charleston Battery.
“It’s been a pleasure working with College of Charleston staff and look forward to the positive partnerships that will result from this move,” said Charleston Battery Owner Eric Bowman. “We’ll also be working to enhance the facilities at Patriots Point to meet all USL Championship requirements and create an unforgettable game-day experience. Our venue will be more easily accessible to people in the downtown area, and give our fans the opportunity to explore the best spots in town before and after the matches.”
Details concerning ticketing and preseason scheduling will be available on our website in the weeks to come. We hope to have you with us in what will be an unforgettable 2020 season!
