FC Tucson announces "Pack The House" event

Posted: Updated:

Tucson, AZ (Wednesday, July 17, 2013) — Today FC Tucson announced that this Saturday, July 20, has been dubbed "Pack The House" Night. FC Tucson is encouraging all fans to bring as many of their friends as possible as the club attempts to break the all-time club attendance record of 1,022.

"This has been a fantastic season of accomplishments for our growing and passionate fan base.   We went over 1,000 fans twice this season and now, we want to challenge our community to come out for one final summer celebration and be a part of our first official sell-out of 1,200 fans," said FC Tucson Chief Business Officer Chris Keeney. "These players have fallen in love with Tucson and it would be tremendous to send them back to their collegiate or professional careers with a massive home field advantage and a standing ovation when the match ends.  It's also the last hurrah at Field 5 because we will open next season at our new stadium which will be an epic event as well.

"Added FC Tucson Head Coach Rick Schantz: "Revenge is on all of our minds. When we lost to BYU in Provo on July 4, they had their biggest home crowd of the season and it was clear their players fed off that energy. We want to return the favor and show the Cougars just how difficult it is to play against us in Tucson, Arizona.
