My first time and why it won’t be the last Royal’s match I attend

There is rarely enough time in a day or week for me to do all the things I want and need to do, I imagine your life is much the same.  I can say this, I will make more time in my schedule for the Utah Royals going forward. I can’t say i will attend every match but I can say that every match I can attend I will and if you are a RSL fan, or just a soccer fan in general I will recommend you do the same.

The biggest reason I am throwing my full support behind the Utah Royals is simple, they are entertaining to watch and easy to cheer for.  The game is a little bit slower and points maybe less technical (but not much) but it is a cleaner style, tackles are done with the intent of getting the ball, not taking an opposing player out. So while there are fouls, they are less frequent and that leads to less interruptions and better flow and flopping is a whole lot rarer than one tends to see in the men’s game.

Another reason is what I saw on my way to and from the match, that was families a whole lot of families going to the match.  The Royals’ tickets are less expensive than RSL tickets, this means it is easier for families to attend home matches and that is a great thing. Before, during and after the match I looked around the stands and it simply made me smile at the pure number of young girls there to cheer on their heroes.
