Doubleheader tailgate to benefit NWSLPA

Chicago Local 134 is teaming up with Section 8 Chicago for the Fire/Red Stars doubleheader on April 20th and will take over tailgate food duties.

Proceeds from the tailgate will be donated directly to the NWSL Players Association

A $5 donation will get you access to an assortment of breakfast items before the 12:00 p.m. Fire game and the 2:30 p.m. Red Stars game that follows. There will be no official Local 134 tailgate between the two games.

“We, the players of the NWSL, vow to build on the opportunity that has been afforded to us, as well as work to achieve those goals that have not yet been attained. We honor the vision and progress of those who came before us…Pledge to work with the League and Allocated Players to advance continued improvements in women’s soccer…Commit ourselves to doing all in our power for the betterment of our members so that we may best contribute to the common goal: a world-class product on the field, and to be role models and inspire the next generation off the field.”

NWSLPA Mission Statement

Chicago Red Stars Announce #ChangingTheGame Partnership

From chicagoredstars.com:

CHICAGO – The Chicago Red Stars are proud to partner with the Chicago Sky of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) and the Chicago Bandits of the National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) in an attempt at #ChangingTheGame in Chicago women’s sports.

Chicago is home to three top-level women’s sports teams featuring players who represent both their club and country. Fans can show support for Chicago women’s professional sports in the first step of the #ChangingTheGame initiative with one great deal.

For $50, fans will receive a ticket to the 2019 home openers of the Red Stars, Sky and Bandits as well as a limited-edition #ChangingTheGame t-shirt.

“The partnership that is being created between three powerful sports teams in Chicago is groundbreaking,” Red Stars owner Arnim Whisler said. “Fans are being given the opportunity to continue to grow the women’s game in three leagues through the NWSL, NPF, and WNBA with this initiative. This is just the beginning of an ongoing relationship between three aspiring organizations looking to change the game.”

Tickets will be delivered via email no later than 48 hours before each team’s home opener. Dates and times of each team’s 2019 home opener will be announced by each team in 2019. T-Shirts will be available for pick-up at the Chicago Red Stars 2019 Home Opener.

squadFrom Lifetime.com’s post “Real #SquadGoals: How NWSL’s Most Dedicated Fans Are Changing the Game“:

“Much has been written about the fierce and rowdy Riveters — with anywhere from 1,000 to 1,500 fans in attendance at home games. While they are the largest supporters group in the NWSL, the other nine teams in the league also have supporter groups that are just as proud. Groups like Cloud 9 (Sky Blue), the Spirit Squadron (Washington Spirit) and Chicago Local 134 (Chicago Red Stars) all bring amazing energy to the games.”
