Sounders FC support group also helps a worthy cause

I was sent a press release on Wednesday from a loyal Seattle sports fan about a new Sounders FC support group. There is some charitable work behind its efforts and I wanted to use this platform to pass the information along if you’re interested.

Legion of Xtreme Soccer Fans Launches Website and Opens for Membership
March 10, 2010
Seattle, Washington

The Legion of Xtreme Soccer Fans is officially launching its website at midnight, March 11, 2010. With the official launch of the site, the organization will be accepting memberships into The Legion.
The Legion of Xtreme Soccer Fans is a professional soccer (supporter) fan group that encourages extreme support of the Seattle Sounders FC professional soccer franchise, as well as the promotion of fan support at the regional, national (and possibly global) level. The intention of the Legion of Xtreme Soccer Fans is to take fan support to the ‘next level’. This would include demonstrating support by dressing up ‘xtremely’, including wearing costumes, colored hair, face paint, etc. A second reason for formation of the Legion of Xtreme Soccer Fans is to raise funding for pediatric medical institutions, such as Seattle Children’s Hospital, based in Seattle, Washington.


The Legion was founded by Phil Andruss and KC Dochtermann (which may be better known by Seattle Sounders FC soccer fans as ‘Mr Mohawk’ and ‘Wotan’). Due to their fanatical support and outlandish dress, they have become the virtual epitome of the very enthusiastic fan base that exists in Seattle for the Sounders FC soccer team. They also hold in common the fact that their daughters were born with serious congenital birth defects that required vast amounts of medical treatment at Seattle Children’s. As Phil Andruss said, “If not for (Seattle) Children’s, our daughters wouldn’t be here with us right now.” Their shared feeling of an obligation to Seattle Children’s has driven them to form The Legion and work to raise funding for this very important Seattle institution. As KC Dochtermann said, “I can’t think of a better cause.”
10% of all Legion of Xtreme Soccer Fans membership dues and merchandise sales goes directly to Seattle Children’s Hospital.
More information about the Legion of Xtreme Soccer Fans can be found at the new website: www.LegionofXtremeSoccerFans.com, or contact KC Dochtermann, Director of Marketing at:
