Terry and I attended the Crystal Palace vs. Crystal Palace friendly at the Regency Furniture Stadium in Waldorf last year. It was impressive to see how many junior soccer-philes and their families appreciate the game and took advantage of the opportunity to see a member of the Premiere League barnstorming with their farm team in the colonies.
So it isn’t surprising that the Blue Crabs are tapping into this enthusiasm again by holding a World Cup FanFest to watch the US take on England this Saturday.
The Fan Fest will include the live television broadcast of theWorld Cup match beginning at 2:30 p.m., special guest appearances by current and former pro soccer players, including A.J. DeLaGarza of the Los Angeles Galaxy, and specialty soccer memorabilia raffle.
(DeLaGarza, who is a Maryland native, played his college soccer at University of Maryland from 2005-2008.)
There will also be mini-clinics and skill challenges for younger players on the field, face painting, and more family activities.
The gates at Regency Furniture Stadium will open for this event at noon, and admission is $5.00. Children under five will be admitted free. All fans are encouraged to show their team spirit by wearing their favorite soccer jersey.

It will take place April 17 and 18, 2010, starting with a fun run for kids on the Indian Head Rail Trail at 9 a.m. Saturday. The 13 mile Indian Head Rail Trail, extending from Indian Head to Rt. 301 in White Plains, was completed last fall. It quickly become a favorite of fitness buffs, nature lovers, and artists who delight in the magnificent scenery it offers.
On Saturday, the packet pickup and runners’ expo will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Regency Furniture Stadium, home of the Blue Crabs and popular year round community facility since its opening in 2008.
The main event, a 13.1 mile run, will start at 8 a.m Sunday. The 5K run will begin at 8:15 a.m.
The 2010 USRA series includes 18 cities in middle size to small markets, with the first stop in Columbia, S.C. The attraction of Charles County, in addition to its new facilities and fast growth market, is its proximity to Washington DC and its enthusiastic running community which is supporting the challenge.
The Hughesville Running Club is providing volunteers and race directors. They look forward to welcoming regional runners for a trip through rural agricultural Maryland. The locals are eager to show off their beautiful countryside, and entertain visitors at a post race party and festival at the finish line.
Kudos for Charles County’s Department of Economic Development and Tourism for partnering with this national tour, giving Maryland the opportunity to show more people what we have to offer.
