CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte Eagles battle Antigua Barracuda FC on Saturday night at Charlotte Christian Stadium at 7 p.m. The Eagles are coming off their first loss since June 9th, after falling 2-1 to the Richmond Kickers last Saturday night. Both that defeat, and the one that preceded their six-game winning streak, occurred in Richmond, but the run of form put the Eagles back in USL PRO Playoff contention. There are just seven points separating third place and eighth place in the league standings, making the Eagles' final five games crucial to their playoff hopes.
Antigua sits at the bottom of the USL PRO standings, and has not won since July 1. The two teams met back in late April in the Caribbean, with Antigua taking victory in the opening game, and the Eagles taking their first win of the season in game two of the back-to-back.
The Eagles are proud to announce AAA Auto Sales Night at the stadium. Fans will be able to take part in a drawing for a free iPad as well as other giveaways and contests. Saturday is also sponsor and season ticket appreciation night. The Eagles are proud to have strong business and community partners which help make the Charlotte Eagles the great team they are.
Calling all campers!!! Come cheer on your favorite coaches and receive a complimentary AAA Auto Sales water bottle and Eagles sticker. Also, be a part of an all campers half-time game on the field. Remember to wear your Eagles Camp shirt and get into the game free (proof of purchase will also be accepted).
