Charleston Battery to Host Richmond Kickers for Championship Showdown

August 25, 2010

In their first USL championship game since 2003, the Charleston Battery will face the defending USL-2 Champions, the Richmond Kickers, in this season’s USL-2 Championship game this Saturday evening, Aug. 28, right here on Daniel Island.

The two teams are no strangers. Richmond has been one of the Battery’s oldest rivals since the 1993 season. In fact, this Saturday’s showdown will mark their 41st meeting, and the results have been split down the middle: Each team has won 18 games, and four matches finished with a tie score. Clearly, the stakes are high!

Bring the family and come and cheer on the home team! Kick off is set for 6:00 pm at Blackbaud Stadium, and the match will be broadcast live on FOX Soccer Channel. Tickets are on sale now starting at just $10, and discounts are available for groups of ten or more. There is no charge for children age four and under.
