The Foot Soldiers started out in 2015 at a Foothills FC U23 match, by a bunch
of 12 guys who loved the Beautiful Game. It didn’t matter who we loved, where
we came from, or the colour of our skin — we share one love: the football!
Fast forward to today, and we are the voices that drives the noise at Cavalry
FC matches at Spruce Meadows. But despite growing from a dozen guys to
hundreds of Calgarians of all stripes, we have not forgotten the values we
were founded on.
We love our team, and we love our city. So in our first year of supporting our
team in a new league (the Canadian Premier League), we’re starting something
new: with a Prideraiser benefiting Calgary Outlink!
What is Outlink, you ask? They are an organization that is at the front lines
of the LGBTQI+ community in Calgary, providing assistance and educational
programs for folks of all ages. Needless to say, that’s pretty damn cool. And
also bloody costly…so why not help them out, and support your Cavalry at the
How can you help?
- Make a pledge. Every little bit helps!
- For every goal the Cavalry score in the six matches (Canadian Championship
matches will be tacked on if the Cavs qualify) between August 10 & September
2, your pledge will be multipled. The more goals the Cavs score, the bigger
your contribution to Outlink’s fine work!
- After the match window is over, you’ll get a lovely email from us to remind
you to donate directly to Outlink. No one takes a cut here!
So let’s raise the cavalry and help us charge towards a better future for
LGBTQI+ Calgarians! Pledge today!
