Calgary United Team With United Way for February 20 Home Game
Calgary United is very pleased to announce that the game on February 20th against the Saskatoon Accelerators (7pm kick-off) will be a joint collaboration between CUFC and the United Way of Calgary and Area. Donations, including proceeds from the 50/50 draw at the game, will be made to United Way.
"This is a fantastic new partnership for United Way. We are pleased to be involved with Calgary United FC because it's focused on bringing the community together and making a difference in children's lives," says Ruth Ramsden-Wood, President of United Way of Calgary and Area.
"Soccer is the most played and watched sport in the world. As Calgary becomes a more multicultural community, soccer is a sport that will bring the city together," Chris Baker, President of CUFC, elaborates. Children under 18 attending the game in their CMSA club jerseys will be admitted for free.
Saskatoon win two against Winnipeg; keep pressure on United
Saskatoon defeated Winnipeg twice in a double-header on February 13th to go 2 points ahead of Calgary in the standings. The Accelerators won 6-3 and 4-0 and remain undefeated on the difficult sport tile surface of their home venue, the Henk Ruys Centre. Saskatoon has 2 games remaining and Calgary four, but the first meeting between the two, this Saturday (February 20th) at the Subway Soccer Centre, now becomes a must-win for Calgary. Should they lose, United would have to go to the Henk Ruys the following weekend having to win to stay in contention, and become the first team to defeat Saskatoon at home. Calgary ends the season with a double-header against Winnipeg on March 6th.
