Phantoms Show Community Pride

The Seacoast United Phantoms are reaching out to the local town and community programs and inviting them to their 2015 home matches taking place at Portsmouth High School and Southern New Hampshire University as part of the Club's "Appreciation Days" initiative. The whole day is dedicated to that specific club/town organization and there are some exciting match day experiences on hand to make it a special occasion.  

The Seacoast United Phantoms 2015 campaign is just over a week away and it is already promising to be an exciting season. The Phantoms are defending the Premier Development League's Northeast Division title and their first match is against Real Boston Rams on Sunday, May 10th at Portsmouth HS. This season, for the first time in franchise history, the Phantoms have qualified for the US Open Cup and the first round takes place on Wednesday, May 13th against GPS Massachusetts (Cambridge, MA 8pm kickoff). There is a lot of buzz surrounding the squad especially with 13 players returning from last season. This is an exciting time for soccer in New England and specifically in the Seacoast area. 

To take full advantage of the soccer momentum hitting the area, Seacoast United is announcing the first ever “Appreciation Days”. The Club is reaching out to the local town and community programs and inviting them to the Phantoms home matches taking place at Portsmouth High School and Southern New Hampshire University. The whole day is dedicated to that specific club/town organization and there are some exciting match day experiences on hand to make it a special occasion including:

Guard of Honor
Team Mascots
Ball Boys and Girls
Half-Time Penalty Shootout
Autographed Shirt Presentation
Bouncy Houses
Frozen Ice Truck

“Seacoast United has made great strides in the local community and we felt this was the next step in getting people involved in the Phantoms," commented Director of Sales and Marketing James Peterson on the new program. "Last year was a fantastic year for the squad and we want to continue to build on that with some exciting options off the field. This is our way of thanking the towns and communities we work with because at the end of the day they play such an important role in our Club. This might be the closest some of these kids have ever gotten to elite level soccer players and the fact that they can walk out hand-in-hand with them is something I am sure will live long in their memory.”

The best part about this exciting initiative is that all kids are admitted FREE with a paying adult. Seacoast United would like all of the players to wear their town jerseys and make some noise cheering on the Phantoms.
