Professional Women’s Soccer Comes To North Carolina

Professional Women’s Soccer Comes To North Carolina
CBC Supports The Carolina Courage

The Carolina Courage, a new professional women’s soccer team, is kicking up its heels in the Triangle thanks in part to Capitol Broadcasting Company. The Carolina Courage, a member of the Women’s United Soccer Association (WUSA), selected CBC’s Capitol Sports Management to provide sponsorship and corporate ticket sales support.

The team will play its inaugural game this Saturday, April 21st, at Fetzer Field on the campus of UNC. The Courage’s challenge of Kristine Lilly and the Boston Breakers will be a history-making, one time event in North Carolina, the first league game for the Courage and the beginning of the WUSA’s first season. Game time is 7:30pm.


Originally tapped for Orlando, the Carolina Courage relocated to Raleigh-Durham at the end of last year. Their home field for the 2001 season will be Fetzer Field, but the team will later move to the brand new State Capital Soccer Park in Cary due to be completed next year.

CSM President Hill Carrow said, “”We are extremely excited about North Carolina’s newest professional sports franchise. We feel that, as the only professional team in the area focused on women’s

sports, the Carolina Courage will gain a strong foothold in the Triangle. We are delighted to have been chosen to join the Courage team.”

The Carolina Courage will visit CBC entity the Durham Bulls tonight, Friday, April 20th, as Courage head coach Marcia McDermott will throw out the first pitch and the entire team will be introduced to Bulls fans.
