It’s Time!

It is finally time to start buying our season tickets.  We hope to see as many of you as possible in section #144, officially known as the Kings Head Supporter Section.  We are looking for as many people as possible to stand with us (previous supporter section experience is not required).  If you want to come out and have some fun, our section is for you.  And if you want to bring some friends along, even better!

For those that don’t know what to expect in a supporter’s section, we recommend reading our post from earlier this year:

Supporters sections work best when ticketing is general admission, because it allows flexibility for executing TIFO and for those who will be more involved on any given day, to move to the front.

Since our section will have assigned ‘seating’, here are some things to consider when choosing your spot:

  • Only choose to stand in the front few rows if you plan to stand and sing loudly for the full 90, or if you are comfortable moving out of the way if you don’t feel like being as involved one day.
  • If you love the idea of being in the supporter’s section but know you can’t physically stand the entire match, consider choosing your spot a little further back. If you do need to sit, your view may be blocked.
  • There will be smoke in our section. Especially if we score a lot of goals (and we all want Valour to score a lot of goals, right?).
  • There will be some colourful language. Kids are welcome in our section, but the language won’t be censored, so it is up to you to decide if you want to expose your children to that.

Definitions:

TIFO: ” is the Italian word for the phenomenon of supporting a sport team. In some countries (but not in Italy) it is mostly used as a name for any choreography displayed by fans in the stands of an arena or stadium in connection with a sport event, mostly as part of an association football match.”  Dierect quote for – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tifo

Scarves: “Soccer Scarves began in early England in the 1900’s as a way for fans to stay warm, while keeping their spirits up. Thus this is how the tradition of team soccer scarves” began. https://diehardscarves.com/blog/the-history-of-soccer-scarves/

Capo: “Italian for “leader”.  The use of this term can cause confusion: some say there ought to only be one ‘capo’ (the leader of the group) and then a squad of lieutenants who rotate to lead chants during games. But capo seems to have become the pervasive term in ultras culture for whoever is leading the ultras curva or section of the stadium.”  https://pitchinvasion.net/the-capo/
