You might have seen our weekly “7 Facts” series, spotlighting Menace players and coaches. Now, we’re giving you seven reasons to come to Saturday’s game against Saint Louis FC U23.
1. FIREWORKS: After the final whistle signals the end of the Premier Development League match, there will be a fireworks show right above Valley Stadium.
2. RACE FOR THE PLAYOFFS: The Menace is No. 2 in the Heartland Division standings, behind the St. Louis Lions. We need fans to cheer on the team as it chases the No. 1 spot and its fourth straight division title.
3. KIDS ZONE: Make bedtime a little easier on Saturday night – for free! Your children can burn all their energy in the Kids Zone, with street soccer and our new Menace bounce house.
4. MANIAC: Who doesn’t want to hang out with our mascot? We heard he’s pretty fast, too.
5. NEW OPPONENT: Saint Louis FC U23 is visiting Des Moines for the first time. Let’s show the club what Des Moines is all about.
6. WIN CASH: Fans 18 and older can play 50/50. The winner walks away with half the earnings, and the other half on Saturday goes to the Menace Soccer Foundation.
7. POST-GAME AUTOGRAPHS: After the fireworks, the Menace’s players will be on the field for photos and autographs with our fans.
We hope to see you at Valley Stadium this Saturday. Thanks for your support of the 2017 Des Moines Menace!
