Charleston-Dayton and Portsmouth FC is Coming to Town

The Charleston Battery will face the Dayton Dutch Lions at 7:30 at Blackbaud Stadium. The Battery are coming off a US Open Cup victory over Regals FC. Will the Battery bounce back?

Here's the preview from the Battery's website. The match will be broadcast on USL Live

In the biggest news of the week, English Championship side, Portsmouth FC, is coming to Chucktown for an International Friendly with the Charleston Battery on July 27th. This is great news for all soccer fans in the Lowcountry.

Portsmouth will be their "home" during their 12 day stay in the US.

  1. Hi, we are coming over, where have you heard that Pompey are playing Charlotte Eagles as we are still waiting for Portsmouth F C to announce their
    first fixture. We know about the Charleston Battery fixture. Paul

  2. Well thanks for reading Paul!
    After double checking my facts (which I should probably do in the first place), i've found that I've had a bit of a miscommunication with my source:
    Where it says "The city of Charlotte in the state will host Cotterill’s side."
    I took this to be hosting as in a match.
    Sorry about the mistake, and it will be fixed.
