May 4,2020 - Silver Spring, MD - Maryland Bobcats FC are happy to announce that we will NOT be playing South Bend Lions FC on May 9th.
The South Bend Lions, from Indiana, are a USL League Two team, founded in 2019. May 9 was the date scheduled for them to play their inaugural game. For a club, this was supposed to be a special day that would culminate in an exhibition match that would bring the community together for the very first time in support of their new club. Understandably that game will not be happening. However, they were looking to do something to mark the date and, most importantly, raise some money to help out relief projects in response to COVID-19. We are proud to be a part of their new plan and would love for you (the fans) to be a part of this special day. Here's what we're hoping you can support us to do: Buy a $1 ticket online with the proceeds going to benefit COVID-19 relief projects in South Bend, Indiana Hold a virtual tailgate party (BBQ/Picnic etc.) at your house/garden/drive etc. while adhering to local protocols regarding COVID-19 Use the #LionsVirtualTailgate, #RoarTalent, and our favorite, #ForAll hashtags and send us a photo or video on May 9th We want to help raise as much money as we can and put a smile on everyone's face in the process. We're looking forward to not playing on May 9th! #ForAll
