The Alamo City Soccer Club unveiled their primary and secondary kits for the 2015 season at the annual season ticket holder meet and greet at the club's own Garrison 1836 bar located on the suite deck of Stone Oak Park.  With all in attendance eagerly awaiting any tidbit they could get for the upcoming season, club Captain Mauro Diaz entered the room wearing the Primary kit while from the other side of the room Obafemi Martins came in with the Secondary kit on his shoulders.  Throughout the night the rest of the club came and went wearing all sorts of training and casual wear aligned with this season's kit design.  "Oh, and we've already got a Major's Cup kit planned as well, so ... here's to a successful campaign," stated club owner David to those in attendance.

The club let out the schedule and opponents for the Freedom Cup and it was a doozy of an announcement.  The tournament has expanded and includes teams from FIVE countries on FOUR continents.  In total, six clubs will play a round robin single table tournament to crown the 2015 Freedom Cup Champion.  This season Alamo City will be joined by fellow Texan and partner club San Antonio Scorpions FC, FMF partner club Leon, returning participants Zenit St Petersburg from Russia and Lanus of Argentina (coached by club legend Guillermo Barros Schelotto), and finally new participant and winningest club in J-League history the Kashima Antlers.  Full schedule of matches:

  1. How are you going to get the J-League stats? Every site I've tried barely gives any information beyond the score and maybe who scored. I'd love to play more against Asian clubs, but the A-League is the only league that I can get all the stats I need.

  2. Transaction approved

  3. what site did you use for kit design? I don't like the one I found.

    1. I have a ton of kit templates downloaded. I just play around with them until something sticks. I use FM View ... the guys there are great...
