Last Spring, our local area football club hosted play-off games in the newly renovated Utica Auditorium. The players making up the Utica FC roster have come from all over the world, reflecting the diversity Utica has to offer.
Natalie Williams, a reporter with the Phoenix, covered the Eastern Division Championship, which was held in April. Despite two losses to Baltimore, an enthusiastic crowd celebrated every goal scored by the home team: “It reminded me of what fanatic soccer fans are like overseas. The indoor matches were enormous fun – with non-stop action.”
Football Club events are family-friendly, including half-time, where young fans are invited onto the field for skills games. The upcoming season starts in December of this year.
The team roster, game schedule, and ticket information can be found at UticaCityFC.com. Tickets for future games can be obtained by visiting the Adirondack Bank Center Box Office, or by calling (315) 790-9070.
