One of the most frequent questions we get at Triangle Soccer Fanatics is whether or not fans can join the supporters club if they don't sit in The Depot supporters section at RailHawks matches.
While the supporters section is a big part of our match day experience, TSF is about a lot more than just congregating in Sections 309-310 at RailHawks matches. As a club, we tailgate before every match, have RailHawks away match watching parties, do charity events in the community, and even get together with RailHawks players for various social events including our Feed the RailHawks picnics.
In fact, a good portion of our membership does not sit in the Depot on match day and finds membership in TSF a rewarding part of their support of the Carolina RailHawks. Here are a few testimonials from some of our members:
"It wasn't easy to find soccer friends in the area before I found TSF. It's a group that includes everyone from babies to seniors, and we're all growing Triangle soccer through supporting our local team. I get the best of both worlds: I can enjoy a tailgate with great food and great friends before I take my seat right behind the visitors' bench, or me and my family are always welcome in the Depot. TSF is for everyone who loves the beautiful game!" -- Amy Garner, Season Ticket Holder Section 105
"I love soccer. I loved watching my kids play in the local youth leagues. I love playing in the local adult league. And I love that we have a very competitive local professional team right here in the Triangle. I'm a RailHawks Season Ticket Holder AND a member of Triangle Soccer Fanatics (TSF) because I want to support our Carolina RailHawks and I want to grow the game of soccer in our area. I invite you to join TSF and help grow the game." -- Doug Moore, Season Ticket Holder Section 106
"As a season ticket holder, I wanted to find others that shared my family's passion for soccer. We knew TSF was part of the Depot and had some tailgates but never took part until 3 years ago when one of the TSF members, Greg, invited us to a pre-game tailgate. My family continues to participate in the tailgates and have made several friends within the group. Being a member of TSF gives my family an added game day experience. We feed off the energy of the Depot even though our tickets are on the other side of the stadium because we know we are a part of TSF. Sharing a love of the Beautiful Game with others keeps us coming back." -- David Boss, Season Ticket Holder Section 106
"Being a member of TSF really adds value to my season ticket plan. Even though we don’t sit in the Depot, tailgating with TSF allows me to share my passion for soccer with other like-minded RailHawks supporters. Getting involved in great events like Feed the RailHawks is just icing on the cake for me." -- Justin Walther, Season Ticket Holder 400s Section.
Even if you do not decide to formally join TSF as a paid member, RailHawks fans are welcome at most all of TSF's events including pre-match tailgating and watch parties.
