Rising Roundup: May 24-May 30

By H. Jose Bosch, 05/30/20, 12:00PM MST


For those of you following our Instagram account, you've seen that we've spent the last 20 days reliving each of our 20 wins from last year's historic winning streak. (Even if you don't have an Instagram account, you can see the posts for yourself here.)

The memories are bittersweet as we have no choice but to patiently wait for soccer to return to Casino Arizona FIeld. 

But the best part of reliving each of those 20 wins was to be reminded of how amazing our supporters really are. They make Casino Arizona Field one of the most electric places to play in USL. What many may not realize is that they also make it electric to play on the road.

The team won nine matches away from Casino Arizona Field during its 20-match winning streak, and there is no doubt the traveling support helped fuel some of those wins in a major way.

This season, the team debuted "Copper State Pride" kits featuring Arizona cities superimposed on the shoulders of the kit. The team wanted the league to know that no matter how far the club traveled, it was always bringing Arizona with them.

But the league already knew this. Because everywhere the club goes, its supporters will always follow.
