THERE'S A NEW EDITION TO THE FORT MILL - TEGA CAY NEWSLETTER: Guy's Corner, By Rene Lurion - Realtor® Partner of the Linda Hall Team
Guys Corner will become a regular feature of our newsletter and will feature subjects near and dear to the hearts of our male readers. Fan mail and comments will be welcome.
Now that the announcement has been made that Charlotte will be home to a major league Soccer team, we think it is appropriate to talk a bit about the sport.
American Football is the game that most of us are familiar with but did you know that over 240 million people around the world play Soccer? Also, Soccer is actually called Football in all parts of the world except the USA and Canada. Confusing, I know.
Originally, as one story goes, Soccer can be traced back some 3,000 years when 2 teams used a rock as the ball that symbolized the sun and the captain of the losing team would be sacrificed to the gods… great motivation to win.
A form of Soccer existed in Ancient Greece where the ball was made by bits of leather filled with hair. Ancient Rome is credited with exporting the game to the British Isles, or Britannica as it was known in those days. From there the game developed through the ages and spread throughout the world to become the sport as we know it today and that culminates every 4 years at the World Cup. I am excited to see that high class of a sport comes to Charlotte.
Charlotte’s Bank of American stadium will be the new home for the team in Charlotte and that is where the home matches will take place. If your interest has been spiked and you want to reserve the ability to buy season tickets, go to charlottemls2021.com where you can register with a refundable deposit of a maximum of $100. Once pricing and seat selection are possible you will be contacted by a team representative.
