Asheville City Soccer Club celebrates 20 years of the Asheville Splash this Saturday, June 19th. The Asheville Splash took the city by storm two decades ago in 2001 as a minor league women’s soccer team that played in the W-League.
ACSC will celebrate their contribution to the soccer community in Asheville with a wide range of events throughout the evening. On top of retro kits for the players, fans will be transported back to simpler days of Summer of 2001. As always, a food truck and beer selection will be on hand for the fans’ enjoyment.
On the pitch, the Blues will take on division leading Charlotte Eagles for the second time in four days. Earlier this week, the Girls in Blue lost for the first time this season with a 3-0 scoreline. Although a disappointing loss, the ladies remain in second place in their division. Redemption and revenge are on City’s mind for a 7:30 kick-off at Greenwood Field.
Meanwhile, the Boys in Blue travel to the Atlanta suburbs for an away game against the SSA Kings. This following a disappointing 1-0 loss to the Charlotte Eagles, despite the Blues playing the better on the day.
City upended the Kings the last time the two sides met on May 22nd. Goals by Jack Stainrod and Izaiah Vignali, paired with a Will Watson clean sheet, handed the Blues a 2-0 victory.
Tickets for Saturday’s home contest vs. the Charlotte Eagles are available here. Tickets are limited. The only sure way to claim a ticket is by buying it online before they sell out. Tickets may be for sale at the gate but only until supplies last.
