American Legion Memorial Stadium Renovation

Recommended Posts


Thanks Ah59396. Perfect summary. As a former Seattle Sounders and Detroit City FC season ticket holder, I can't wait to support this team whatever the name. Hoping beyond hope that Charlotte is the town we finally land in (I'm so tired of moving and we love it here so far), and I'm minutes from Memorial Stadium, so I'm eating up all the Queen City SC stuff I can get my hands on. Where'd you first hear the rumor?

At least it's historic.  Now I can get out my old Colonial garb and go to the games dressed like Captain Jack.

I got a horse you can ride. You might get confused for Justin Morgan though. :P

Queen Charlotte FC

Charlotte Queens 

Charlotte Gold Diggers

Charlotte Gold Rush

Charlotte Envangelists

Charlotte Lightnin'

Charlotte Bootleggers

I'm guessing you're joking (CLT Queens Mens Soccer lol), but I would HATE a racing related name like the last 2.  If there is one thing people already overly relate to the region it's racin'.

You need to make it to Hooligan's for EPL on weekends.  It's THE place for footy in town...

Captain Jack is now Queen City SC's Facebook cover photo


"Queen City Soccer Club LLC, the new Charlotte USL Pro Soccer franchise ownership group, is planning a major announcement regarding the return of professional soccer to historic American Legion Memorial Stadium starting in the Spring of ’15. To celebrate this historic occasion, we invite you to toast the team with representatives of the new ownership group at a rally starting at 6:30pm at Courtyard Hooligans Pub on Wednesday, September 17. In addition to fun, camaraderie and cold beer, we will make key introductions, provide updates, announce the rebranded team’s new name and details around a fan contest to choose the newly named team’s logo, introduce our MLS affiliate and give information on how to secure tickets for the upcoming 2015 season. Don’t miss the fun"

Red blue and gold? Looks like?

I'm getting a blue, gold & tan vibe from that pic, like the Charlotte Hounds.

Philadelphia Union meets NE Revolution then? The red accents on Captain Jack have me worried. There can always be mild rebrand for MLS someday too. Looking forward to the logos we'll get to vote on. Excited.

I think a connection between Hounds & Independence would be beneficial for both teams.  They may be alternating weekends next season and cross-promoting as a single franchise.

I'm hoping the MLS affiliation is with Sporting KC. They are losing their second affiliate, Orlando City SC, to MLS next year and will need a replacement. They develop quality players and send them to USL Pro, think Dom Dwyer setting the USL Pro scoring record for Orlando City SC and leading them to the 2013 Championship (Dwyer scored 4 goals in a 7-4 win over the Charlotte Eagles). Or John Kempin, MVP of the MLS Homegrown Game, keeper for Oklahoma Energy FC before moving to SKC because of injuries to their first 2 GKs.

Maybe we could have Dom Dwyer come down and win our championship game the way he did the Eagles last year haha

There's been a little talk on Twitter about the idea of nicknaming the team "The Jacks" like Everton is "The Toffees" or Chelsea is "The Blues," etc. What do you guys think? If Captain Jack is the mascot, I think that nickname is a really great idea.

I would be okay with that. Regardless of the name, excited to see this team play next season -- it would be even better if it was NASL or obviously MLS...

As a RailHawks fan, I am also disappointed they are not going the D2 NASL route - would've made for a great rivalry!  Oh well, I guess we'll still have the inevitable US Open Cup matchups each year.

 

I was partial to Charlotte Queen City as the name, but I suppose Independence will do.  Best of luck.
