Alamo City 2014 Designated Players

Alamo City Stalwart Returns as Does Electrifying Superstar

Making waves is nothing new for the Alamo City Soccer Club.  From its inception as the Montgomery County Monarchs, the franchise has always provided the 'awe' factor.  True to that tradition, the club announced this morning that it will retain team stalwart Thierry Henry and perhaps the most electrifying player in the BSL, Obafemi Martins, as the club's Designated Players for the 2014 season.  

"There's no way Theirry Henry plays for anyone other than Alamo City unless he decides otherwise.  Before last season both parties felt that maybe the partnership had run its course.  We agreed that if we could find an amicable situation that we'd both move forward.  It turns out that we couldn't have been more wrong.  We stayed the course and we set records.  Now we're more focused than ever and are beyond happy to have Thierry leading the Battle yet again."

Add to him, the Nigerian International Superstar in Martins and you've got as deadly a combination as you'll find in any league.  The shake up of the Sounders roster cooled of Martins' hot start to the campaign but that shouldn't be a problem this season.  He's got a full off-season with the club and plenty of time to get work with the new additions.  All signs point to Martins blistering the BSL.

On the heels of the DP announcement, Alamo City also announced that it would retain Olmes Garcia as the clubs retention player.

Alamo City SC Partners With PIRMA and Club Leon

Mexican Sports Clothing Manufacturer Now the Official Supplier for Alamo City
Leon Official Partner Club

"This was such an easy decision," stated Alamo City management after the formal announcement earlier this morning.  "A rising, quality manufacturer that is based right here in North America was the easy choice.  Sure, we've had great relationships with Nike, Adidas, and Puma but we're about moving forward and pushing boundaries here.  PIRMA has been putting out top rate equipment for over 20 years now and they're gaining momentum by leaps and bounds.  We're happy to get in on what the rest of the soccer world is viewing as the ground floor with these guys."

This announcement concludes a near year long search to find the new supplier as all current contracts were due to expire February 1st.  The club has stated that the the players will (and always will) be open to wear the shoes of their choosing due to the individual needs and importance of their feet.  Other than the shoes though, PIRMA will be providing all match and training gear, as well as the officially licensed gear for sale by Alamo City.  

The partnership with Club Leon will bring a whole new dimension to the Battle.  Pre-season training and games will be conducted both in Mexico and San Antonio.  Club Leon will also be a permanent fixture in the Freedom Cup.  "Both clubs have a vision for pushing the envelope and developing the game here in North America.  Liga MX and Mexican soccer has a long and storied history that is represented by clubs like Leon.  We here in America are young but we have resources and capability that very places have.  Combining the two is the perfect way to really begin the evolution of this game in North American and show the rest of the world that we not only belong ... but we can be at the forefront of the sport."
