We are excited to announce our continued partnership with Lionsbridge FC, the USL League Two team in Newport News. USL League Two is the top amateur league in North America and is a launching pad for college-aged players who are aiming to play professional soccer. In the past three years, 11 Lionsbridge FC players have signed professional contracts in England, Sweden, Australia and the United States. Many Legacy alumni have worn the LBFC jersey each summer and it’s great for our players to have an avenue to play in a professional environment after their youth careers.
Lionsbridge FC is a community-minded organization dedicated to helping soccer grow in Hampton Roads. The Legacy-Lionsbridge partnership includes the opportunity for young players to watch, learn and directly interact with these future pros, and to be part of the Lionsbridge FC match day experience.
Virginia Legacy is offering discounted Lionsbridge FC season ticket wristbands. A portion of every sale goes back to Virginia Legacy to directly support our club. The Lionsbridge home schedule includes 12 games. By using promo code LEGACY2021 at checkout, you receive a $5 discount on season ticket wristbands $34 for youth (up to age 13) and $74 for adults. Kids under age 3 are already free.
The Lionsbridge FC season runs May through July and the team plays home games on the campus of Christopher Newport University. Every game is preceded by a 2-hour community festival with food trucks, beer garden, bounce houses and family-friendly games and activities. The 2021 schedule will be released in the next few weeks and you will be able to find it at LionsbridgeFC.com/tickets.
We hope that you will consider supporting Lionsbridge FC as they support us.
