Passport check, boarding pass check right we are ready to roll on another adventure. Today we are heading over the pond to the good old United States of America. Specifically, to Boone, North Carolina to visit Appalachian FC. Appalachian FC are bringing a National Premier Soccer League team to Boone, North Carolina.
Men's soccer is back in the High Country to start playing in May 2021. Appalachian FC is bringing the world's most popular game to their community and will provide opportunities for local students to pursue a sports management career, local players to pursue their dreams, supporters to have a team to call their own in their backyard, companies to give back to their community while growing their business & local owners to build a soccer legacy while inspiring local youth soccer players to reach their potential and providing the community with high level, affordable Summer entertainment in the High Country. Truly heart warming to hear.
Right the shirt we are looking at today is the club’s black away shirt. It’s a rarity in this review that we feature a shirt from one of the big, big brands but today we will make an exception to that because Puma have pulled the ace from the sleeve on this one. The black base is broken up with a number of hexagonal shapes which aesthetically is very pleasing on the old eyeballs, will this look good on the pitch?
Yes, it will, will it look good when you having a few pints? again yes it will. The badge we are a sucker for any mythical/legendary creature so the play on bigfoot/sasquatch is most definitely not wasted on us.
Can you get your own Appalachian FC shirt? Yes, you most certainly can from the clubs website. We do look forward to see the progress of Appalachian FC. As they say ‘Time to get Squatchy!’
