CHICAGO (Nov. 4, 2015) – U.S. Soccer is planning an exciting series of activities to energize fans and unite them in a display of the passion for the Men’s National Team as it begins the 2018 World Cup Qualifying journey in St. Louis, Missouri. U.S. Soccer’s Fan Headquarters will begin Nov. 12 at Ballpark Village outside of Busch Stadium and continue through Nov. 14 in anticipation of the MNT’s matchup with St. Vincent & The Grenadines, which kicks off Nov. 13 at 5:30 p.m. CT on ESPN2, WatchESPN, UniMas and the Univision Deportes Network.
U.S. Soccer’s FanHQ in St. Louis is the official pregame party for fans attending the USA-St. Vincent & The Grenadines World Cup Qualifying match. FanHQ St. Louis will feature special guest appearances and live music from Feel Good Inc, St. Louis’ ultimate rockin’ party band made up of ex-members from some of our nation’s most influential bands.
On match day, FanHQ will include various activities including: live music by DJ SlantE, games, giveaways and other entertainment. Fans can visit the Liberty Mutual Insurance tent located at FanHQ to pick up Lady Liberty crowns and enter the #WearTheCrown sweepstakes for a chance to win $250 in U.S. Soccer gear. Fans can participate by sharing a photo on Twitter or Instagram demonstrating U.S. Soccer pride and tagging it #WearTheCrown.
There will also be a Budweiser Build-a-Bar available for fans to purchase beer and a world-famous Budweiser Clydesdale will be on site for photos. The iconic horses have been seen everywhere from commercials to Presidential inaugurations.
On Saturday, the action continues with a free Downtown Concert featuring country artists Travis Marvin and Josh Thompson on the Ballpark Village Busch II infield. The two will rock out at the premiere dining and entertainment district in the Midwest, Ballpark Village, which features restaurants, bars and a 1,200 square-foot video wall.
