This is a FREE fan event that is open to fans to attend – no ticket required (Due to venue restrictions over 18’s only will be permitted). More information and a full line up to be announced soon. We have been given a limited number of wristbands to meet these legends and get pictures and autographs at the end of the event.

LFC RALEIGH MEMBERS TAKE NOTE — All members that renew prior to July 16 and would like to be entered into the draw for tickets to training or wristband, you need to forward the email Paypal receipt to email@example.com and let me know which event you would like to attend. You can only ask for one of the events (either team training or legend meet-and-greet), and only one ticket will be issued per member. We are currently asking the club to give us extra passes for these events, but there is no guarantee. WE WILL BE PICKING THE WINNERS ON MONDAY JULY 16, SO YOU MUST RENEW BEFORE THEN!!!
Sunday July 22
10:00 AM – LFC Raleigh’s 6-year Birthday Bash and Brunch! Come start your matchday morning and celebrate our club’s sixth year in existence with a wonderful Irish brunch at Ri Ra Irish Pub on Tryon Street in uptown Charlotte (see #4 on above map). North Carolina recently passed the law allowing pints of Guinness to be served on Sundays as early as 10 AM now, so come join us when the fun really begins. It was July 25, 2012 at a pub near Fenway Park in Boston where Darren Bridger, Colin Russell, and Ken Kendra met for the first time and discussed the idea of starting LFC Raleigh. Who could’ve predicted that in less than six years we’d become “probably the best Supporters Club in the world.”
All official LFC Raleigh members that renew (or join for the first time) prior to Monday July 16 and in attendance at this party will be eligible to win some fantastic prizes, including cool stuff from club sponsor Guinness and other cool merchandise. We’ve even confirmed some special guests to be named later will be in attendance.
Come start your day with LFC Raleigh, “probably” the best Supporters Club in the world.
