The folks over at Free Beer Movement have undertaken a pretty amazing series for American soccer supporters – they’re looking at all the supporters groups in MLS.
The folks at Free Bear Movement describe the project:
We continue to expand our coverage of American soccer culture with our series “Better Know a Supporters Group,” just like Steven Colbert’s “Better Know a District” from “The Colbert Report”. Our goal: to feature each of the MLS teams’ supporters groups. We’ve sent e-mails to each and every SG in Major League Soccer and soon you’ll be able to check all what each is all about and what awesomeness they have to contribute to our growing American soccer world. When we devised this idea a while back it was cool to be able to see what each supporter group is about, but in light of the terrible, one-sided, anti-American, condescending profile of Philadelphia’s Sons of Ben SG by the British GQ (not even going to link to it to give them the site hits) we think its all the more important to give supporters groups in Major League Soccer the proper exposure and voice they deserve.
Among the first SGs up for examination are two of the Revs’ more visible groups – The Midnight Riders and The Rebellion. Check out Free Beer Movement’s profiles of each group. If you’re still looking for a supporters group to join (or two), give a gander and see if one (or two) is a good fit for you. And then be sure to check back to Free Beer Movement regularly to see what the other SGs around the league are all about
