10TH SEASON CELEBRATION AT HUGHES STADIUM, PRESENTED BY SCHOOLSFIRST
On August 26th, the Indomitable Club will return to the site of its first match for a 10th Season Celebration at Hughes Stadium. Hughes stadium hosted the first four Republic FC matches in its inaugural season in 2014 – selling out 20,000 seats and bursting onto the American soccer scene. It was a magical experience for those in attendance, and we are proud to be able to set the stage for another unforgettable night. The match will celebrate the 10 years Republic FC has been connected to the communities of Sacramento, reflect on the proud history of the club, and once again remind the American soccer community of how much the game is loved in the region.
To celebrate the occasion, the match presenting partner SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union will provide a free commemorative t-shirt to the first 10,000 fans through the gates.
