After nearly a year of putting together the building blocks for professional soccer in the Hoosier State, Indy Eleven will mark a new phase in the team’s development on Tuesday, October 1, by unveiling three major club announcements in one fell swoop.
Indiana’s North American Soccer League expansion side will hint at the impending news via IndyEleven.com and the team’s social media channels this week before hosting a celebration with fans to unveil the details next Tuesday at The Rathskeller, located at 401 E. Michigan Street in downtown Indianapolis.
The formal presentation at The Rathskeller on October 1 will begin at 6:00 p.m., when Indy Eleven Owner Ersal Ozdemir, President/General Manager Peter Wilt and Director of Soccer Operations/Head Coach Juergen Sommer will welcome special guests in front of the Indy Eleven faithful.
The presentation, to be hosted in the Biergarten section of the landmark Indianapolis restaurant, will be open to soccer fans of all ages and run through 9:00 p.m. Due to an anticipated large crowd, Indy Eleven is asking fans interested in attending to RSVP for this special event, which will also automatically enter them into a drawing for special raffle prizes to be handed out during the evening.
Fans of the “beautiful game” can make a full day out of the proceedings at The Rathskeller, as the event will be bookended by viewing parties surrounding a pair of huge international and domestic soccer events. The day begins with a slate of 2013/14 UEFA Champions League group stage matches at 2:45 p.m. and will close out with the final of the 100thLamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup – the United States’ national championship tournament which Indy Eleven will compete in beginning next spring – at 9:30 p.m. Food and drinks specials will be made available to patrons throughout the monumental celebration of soccer at The Rathskeller.
