“It’s about more than soccer. It’s about community. It’s about a family night out. It’s about local flavor.” Newport News is excited to welcome Lionsbridge Football Club to the area with games beginning in May 2018.
Not long ago, bringing high-level soccer to the area was a dream for local businessman, Mike Vest, Dan Chenoweth and Kevin Joyce. Now, thanks to their hard work and a very excited community, that dream has become a reality. The team will play in the Premier Development League (PDL) of about 75 teams that Vest says represents the best amateur soccer in the nation.
POMOCO Stadium will be home for the team named after the iconic bridge in nearby Mariners’ Museum Park. The coaching staff will recruit players from area and state schools, including CNU, William & Mary, Virginia Wesleyan and Old Dominion.
Lionsbridge FC’s owners want to make the games more than just sporting events. Each game will be preceded by a ‘pre-game community festival’, featuring live music, a beer tent, food trucks, bounce houses and other family-friendly activities. Don’t miss the fireworks displays as well! Ticket prices will be $8 for adults and $2 for children. Season tickets are also available for purchase.
Tradition Brewing Company will have craft beer on site at each game. Fans have the option to watch the games up close and personal at the Tradition Sideline Lounge at POMOCO Stadium. Tradition will also host Lionsbridge FC events, including ‘St. Patricks Day Human Foosball Tournament’.
