Fairfax, Virginia (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
On February 6, 2013 a big crowd gathered at The Bungalow Lakehouse in Sterling, Virginia at 3:30pm for what would be a night to be remembered for all Northern Virginia soccer fans. U.S.A was playing Honduras in World Cup Qualifying. Names like John Harkes, Eddie Pope, Mark Simpson, and Russ Thaler graced the floor talking with the public. Televisions were loudly displaying every possible international game that was in progress while people enjoyed great food and drinks. But the one reason they were all gathered there, was to see the official unveiling of the new NASL Virginia team name.
After a bad showing by the U.S.A with its 2-1 lose, people were more than looking for something to cheer about. Mark Simpson, Director of Soccer Operations, introduced himself and showed his excitement for the new team. After much anticipation, Cavalry FC was finally unveiled as the team’s new name. The father and son who helped name the team were on stage as it was presented. The name Cavalry FC has much significance in part to Virginia’s rich history of battles and wars as well as the abbreviation for Virginia lies in the word Cavalry. After many cheers, fans flocked to the merchandise table to purchase their new Cavalry FC gear. Local soccer fan, Randy Seale, said, "I'm stoked because it gives me another outlet to see some high quality soccer matches in the area which are hard to come by here in the States."
With the unveiling of the NASL Virginia name over with, it is now time to put the pieces together in preparation for its 2014 season opener. Simpson along with VIP Sports and Entertainment are already hitting the pavement hard getting the public involved. Cavalry FC will use the Loudoun Hounds baseball stadium as their home field within the beautiful One Loudoun development. The Loudoun area will make a great home for Cavalry FC and its soccer fans.
