World Cup Fever Hits Rush Pikes Peak
World Cup fever has hit Colorado Springs and Rush Pikes Peak Soccer Club is front and center.
Rush Pikes Peak Director of Soccer Operations, Brian Lux, and Digital Brand Manager, Lauren Meehan, joined forces with Matt Kudron, Switchbacks FC, and members of the Colonials supporters group to build momentum behind the American Outlaws, a United States national team supporters group.
Kudron started the Colorado Springs branch only a few weeks ago and has already found success signing up members and hosting viewing parties for the US games at Jack Quinn’s in downtown Colorado Springs (21 S. Tejon).
American Outlaws prioritizes community support to strengthen the soccer family and is supporting Rush’s R.E.A.C.H. (Rush Equipment Assisting Children) program. R.E.A.C.H. collects and sends new and used soccer equipment around the globe to players in need of gear.
The supporters group will have a R.E.A.C.H. bin at its next viewing party for the United States’ final group game against Germany.
Those of you in Colorado, come out to Jack Quinn’s on Thursday for the 10 a.m. game, bring your gear donation, and cheer the United States on as they seek a spot in the second round!
