Columbus Eagles FC’s fifth season is almost here – Saturday at 2 p.m. against Ann Arbor – but the club started the season in style Wednesday night by hosting a kickoff party at Land-Grant Brewing Company in downtown Columbus.
Eagles fans packed into the Kickstarter Room at Land-Grant to help the club celebrate the start of its fifth season. The 2018 Eagles were introduced and Eagles merchandise was raffled off to those in attendance.
After, Columbus-based photographer Julie Jackson held a photo shoot for Eagles players, coaches, and fans while everyone mingled and celebrated the occasion.
Carl Allen from Triple Digit Speed Pitch – the newest Eagles sponsor and a fundraising partner of local youth sports organizations – was in attendance at the event. Columbus Futsal was also there, just days after they started their professional season with a big win over Lansing this past weekend.
Land-Grant, a partner of the Eagles since earlier this year, helped host the event and has been a terrific partner of CEFC. The event was hosted at the Land-Grant taproom and the brewery gave a portion of the night’s proceeds back to the club.
