Various supporters’ groups in the area are preparing for upcoming events this month, so I figured I’d pass some of that information along here:

American Outlaws Seattle, the local chapter of U.S. men’s national team support, will be hosting a World Cup draw viewing party Friday morning at Atlantic Crossing pub (6508 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle), co-hosted by Golazo. ESPN cameras will be on hand for cut-ins during the 8:30-10:30 a.m. broadcast on ESPN2. The venue opens at 7:30 a.m. and there will be raffles, Golazo samples and other activities going on.

There will be a review of the year by ECS leadership, an awards ceremony for the ECS Player of the Year announcement, and the unveiling of the 2014 ECS membership kit. Food, drinks and a DJ will be on hand. The Royal Femmes & Armed Service Group will be collecting Toys for Tots.
