FACT — In just five days our AFCC Royals take to the field for the first time this season against NPSL newcomers FC Sparta Michigan. This year our home games are at Krenzler Field in downtown Cleveland on the campus of CSU… Before games you’ll find 6CS in Becky’s preparing for the match. Come in, say hi be WAMPUS.
Our new home is much more intimate than Byers was. Krenzler seats 1,700… Byers has seats for 14,000 and can hold 16,500 when standing room is sold out. So, what does this mean for game day? It means we will be as one. The 6th City Syndicate is not a closed group or secret society. It’s not a members only club or exclusionary in any way. 6CS is a group of people who have come together to support the team in them best way we know… making noise and confounding our opposition.
When Dean Miller came over to us last year and thanked us for “creating atmosphere” it meant the world to us. When he looked to us from the field and asked if we could get the rest of the stands involved he gave us our mission. Our goal this year is to get every man, woman and child in the stands cheering for our Royals with one voice.
We’ve seen you. We’ve seen your signs, your posters, your painted hair.
We’ve heard you. We’ve heard the cheers, the gasps, the screaming for goals.
We want you. We want your voice, your help, your energy.
Our team needs us. Two voices are louder than one… two hundred make a point… a thousand make winning the only option.
At the bottom of the AFC Cleveland schedule poster we’ve posted below you’ll find this:
“So, you wanna be part of the 6th City Syndicate? OK, here’s what you do… Declare yourself. Just come to the game and stand with us and we will
count you among our number. We welcome everyone to stand with us and support our team. Yes, stand. We don’t sit at games, we stand, for
90 minutes. We wave flags, we bang drums… a lot. We sing. We chant. We yell insults at the opposition. We welcome everyone, but are not
for everyone. If you want to watch the game peacefully sitting in your seat, only clapping or cheering for goals or “really exciting plays” …
DO NOT SIT BY US. If you sit by us your day will be ruined. On game day Wear BLUE and Bring the WAMPUS!”
… and we mean every word. We want you to cheer for our team for 90 minutes. We want there to be ZERO seconds of silence. We abhor seat cushions. Stand and cheer for your team. Stand and scream for your city. Stand with us and BE WAMPUS! You’ll be glad you did — FACT
