“From the beginning, when the club was announced, there were people inside the organization who did an amazing job of connecting into the community and creating momentum and creating a positive kind of energy about what the stadium was going to be and what kind of football was going to be in there.
So the credit goes to the people who got the ball rolling, and we’ve been able to build a team that loves playing the way we do, that is excited to step on the field and try to create chances, try to play forward, and play the kind of football that those incredible supporters can appreciate.
So the connection that we have with the city and the supporters is special, and we are proud of what we try to do every time we step on the field.”
