Matt Bird has some info on our first place opponent:
Real Monarchs visit us this weekend sitting pretty at the top of the table. That said they’re not as formidable on the road as their record suggests. They have lost their last 2 away games to Portland and Swope, and their last away win was to Vegas, who’s wheels are falling off.
Saint Louis FC sits in 8th, at 5-4-5

Charity Du Jour:
This week is Playing For Pride, a soccer player inspired charity. June is Gay Pride month; soccer is for everyone. Discrimination ain’t cool.
Drums and capos: We march in 1/2 hour before kickoff. Anyone can join the march in! Drummers usually need assistance carrying in the drum stands, so if you can help out, see them as they organize prior to the march.
Tailgate: It’s time for a South City Wedding! Get some pasta, chicken, salad and bread. Only thing missing is mostaccioli and Busch Beer. Don’t forget your collectible cup for $5.
Newligans: If you’re new and this is your first game day, say hi! There will be several of our Newligan Cartel walking around, wearing badges showing their name on it. Feel free to grab one of them and introduce yourself; they’re wearing that badge as a way to indicate they’re there to help you join the crowd. There will be a Newligans table by the trailer in case you don’t see a badged member.
You also can exchange your ticket at their table for a wristband for the march in, so we can proceed through the gate more efficiently.
Merchandise: We will have the 2018 Louligan scarves and the 2018 This Is Silly! Podcast scarves. $20 per scarf, cash or credit. There aren’t many left of the podcast scarves, so get them while you can!
The red line will be the march to the game. The march starts 30 minutes before kickoff (7:00pm).
