Maybe I'm wrong here, but I haven't seen any advertisement for Charlotte this year? There are a few games that should be strongly advertised due to geography and potential rivalries. #1 - NC teams in the US Open. I know the Eagles are D4, but it's potential for a great rivalry and the Eagles always have a good team. Along that line, the Railhawks. A chance to claim rights in NC and knock off a D2 team is always a huge plus in my book! I know they are normally a mid-week game, but look at the Knights baseball. Their mid-week games do great. If Charlotte would promote, throw some beer and food specials, I think it would be a great atmosphere! #2 - Charleston and Wilmington. Especially Charleston! They had a great fan turn out in Charlotte last year. This could become a huge rivalry if our fans would buy in and Charlotte front office would advertise! #3 - Lastly, Cincy. It seems silly, but the potential for the Queen City Cup is a good draw. Cincy is blowing their home attendance out of the park, while we sit here with (if we're lucky) 2,000. I want to support Charlotte Independence! I love soccer and love having a home team, but the front office is killing me! What's the deal??? Oh...and we are currently 2nd at the moment! We are playing well, but that hasn't seemed to change the amount of butts in seats either!
