Center Line Soccer unveils Supporters' Club card

New, 5 comments

As Center Line Soccer enters its second  year of operation, we've had to give some thought to our ongoing viability as a business. While we enjoy reporting on soccer and the great comments you leave on the site, we haven't been able to convince PG&E or the phone company to trade their services for that enjoyment. They simply insist on money, so we've been giving quite a bit of thought to that subject lately.

Fortunately, we've come up with an idea that we are honestly very excited about, and we think you'll like it, too. It lets you support CLS but it will also help save you money at a variety of bars, restaurants, and other businesses in the soccer community, and will even give you access to events like a special Chalk Talk with the Earthquakes' coaching staff. We're calling it the Center Line Soccer Supporters' Club.

Here's how it works: For a fee of just $20, you'll receive a custom membership card which you'll be able to present at participating businesses for a discount. We'll also send you special, limited time offers — like discounts on tickets to upcoming Earthquakes matches — via e-mail.

We've already assembled an impressive list of partners for this program and we'll be adding more. So far, here's an alphabetical list of who's participating: (You'll always be able to find the full, up-to-date list of Center Line Soccer Supporters' Club discounts, along with links to their web sites, maps, and any limitations on these offers, here.)

Even if none of these offers appeals to you, we'd like to encourage you to consider supporting CLS anyway. We think we do a pretty good job of covering the soccer scene, but there's more that we'd like to do. In order to expand our coverage, though, we need to know that you, our readers, are with us. We don't expect crowds of you to come sing, chant, and cheer while we're typing up our stories, but even a little old web site like ours appreciates enthusiastic supporters.

Click the button below to join using PayPal or your credit card. If you'd prefer, we can also accept payments via check — e-mail us for instructions. Please sign up by April 1 — only a limited number of cards will be available after that date. Finally, please note that cards will be delivered in April, after the conclusion of the membership drive.

Thanks for your support!
