Battalions, some information ahead of our launch.
Gates officially open from 6pm, but we as a group can enter from 5pm onwards, at gate number 3. We will have a Battalion booth on the field, head to that as you enter.
Membership sign up for Barton St Battalion will happen between 5-6.30pm. It will be a $50 deposit by card. The membership number you recieve is your place in line when the team begins calling fans for the purchase of seasons tickets, i.e. member 57 is the 57th phone call the club make. A membership allows you to purchase multiple season tickets, so families etc will only need to pay one $50 deposit for one membership.
Our booth will have merchandise for sale, and it will also be where deposits are taken, by the club.
We as a group will all be invited on stage during launch, which starts at 7pm, so we will all need to be massed together prior, around 6.45.
After the event ends, we will all be heading to The Capitol Bar for drinks to celebrate.
Make sure to bring and wear your battalion scarves and any other gear you already own. We will have about 40-50 flags to wave, as well as drums, banners etc.
Hopefully this answers all questions, and again apologies for it being late notice. It is going to be a great day, it looks like a huge turnout. Hope everyone is just as excited. Soccer returns to Hamilton, and we will all be there to witness it.
