CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte Eagles host the Richmond Kickers on Saturday night at Charlotte Christian at 8 p.m., marking the second time in a week that the two USL PRO rivals will meet. Just a week ago the Kickers squeezed out a 1-0 victory, after David Bulow notched the lone goal in stoppage time.
The Eagles will look to rebound after their tough loss and need to find a way to pull out a victory against their long-time rival. Both the Eagles and the Kickers are celebrating their 20th seasons this summer.
The Eagles continue to linger near the bottom of the table, ahead of only Antigua and Dayton. There have been positives over the past few games, however, as the Eagles have found combinations up front that have produced more goal scoring. Now the pressure is on to notch a few more marks in the win column.
Saturday night's game is part of a doubleheader event that starts at 5:30 p.m. with the W-League's Charlotte Lady Eagles hosting the Atlanta Silverbacks in a key Southeast Division contest. The Eagles will be honoring all the 2012 host families, with a special presentation between games.
June 16 is also mustache night! Men if you have not started growing your mustache yet you better get going. Everyone with a mustache will receive $5 tickets. The first 100 fans to the Eagles merchandise tent will get a free mustache. There will be opportunity to take photos at the Eagles Mustache Photo Booth.
A special notes to all our fans - Charlotte Christian is currently doing construction on the South parking lot. The South gate will not be open. There will only be two access points into the stadium; the West gate (Will Call) and the North gate.
