We’re less than two weeks until the beloved start their 2021 campaign! The long dark offseason is over. That also means it’s time for our (much delayed) annual general meeting. That wonderful time of the year that we get to see each other again and talk a bit about the upcoming season.
Typically our AGM is before a preseason game, but since those have been closed to the public this year we’re going to combine our AGM with the season opener watch party. Steel Army members, we invite you to join us at Highmark Stadium on Saturday May 8th for this two-for-one special.
Due to procedures laid out by the club / stadium the AGM will be a TICKETED EVENT. Meaning you MUST have a ticket to enter the stadium. This is a departure from how we normally run it, but we’re still in a pandemic even if it’s starting to get towards the end. TICKETS ARE FREE– we’re not going to nickel and dime anyone. What this means though is to attend the AGM and watch party you must be:
A current Steel Army member.
A guest of a current Steel Army member (family, friend, etc).
Planning on purchasing a Steel Army membership at the AGM.
Steel Army members- we will be posting a form in the Speakeasy and in a Dispatch email a little later this week. Please make sure to fill it out if you will be attending the AGM. If you have not purchased a membership yet but are planning on doing so at the AGM, contact us via social media and we’ll send you the form. You can RSVP up until 4pm the day of the event.
Also be aware the team may use this event as an opportunity to do a dry run of some of their stadium procedures before the home opener (such as these tickets). We know yinz will be cool about it and help them out if asked.
We can’t wait to see all of yinz and get back to watching local soccer.
