The Blue Crabs will be hosting a 2010 World Cup Soccer Fan Fest on Saturday, June 12 at Regency Furniture Stadium. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Civista Health Foundation, the presenting sponsor of the 2010 season of Blue Crabs baseball.

The Fan Fest will include the live television broadcast of United States vs. England World Cup match beginning at 2:30 p.m., special guest appearances by current and former pro soccer players and a specialty soccer memorabilia raffle. There will also be mini-clinics and skill challenges for younger players on the field, face painting, and more.

The headline guest at the event will be A.J. DeLaGarza, who currently plays for the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer. DeLaGarza, who is a Bryans Road, Maryland native, played his college soccer at the University of Maryland from 2005-2008. DeLaGarza will be available to sign autographs for fans during the event. Sponsor PNC Bank will also distribute a free giveaway to the first 500 fans in attendance.

The gates at Regency Furniture Stadium will open for this event at Noon, and admission is a five dollar donation to Civista per guest. Children under five will be admitted free. All fans are encouraged to show their team spirit by wearing their favorite soccer jersey.

“Once again, the multi-use capability of Regency Furniture Stadium will be on full display,” said Blue Crabs General Manager Chris Allen. “We have a very versatile facility, and we look forward to hosting all our fans that enjoy soccer. It should be a terrific match against between the U.S. and England.”

There are also sponsorship opportunities at three different price levels ($250, $500 and $1,000). Companies that participate in any of the sponsorships will get a marketing space provided for them on the concourse, and pre-event publicity and recognition via signage and complimentary admissions. The $1,000 sponsorship is limited to the first six companies.
