St. Charles, MO (September 9, 2019) – The St. Louis Ambush professional indoor soccer team have announced their annual Fan Fest for Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 7:05 p.m. CT at the Family Arena in St. Charles.

The popular annual event is free and includes an exhibition game between the Ambush and the Dallas Sidekicks. Doors to the arena will open at 4:30 p.m. November 16 with on-field activities including inflatables by Twist and Bounce, alumni player autographs, photos with the Ambush Brigade Dance Team and music by DJ Pru. Activities will end at 6:00 p.m. The Ambush and Sidekicks will take the field for warmups at 6:20 p.m. with the first kick at 7:05 p.m.

The Fan Fest gives fans who have never been to an Ambush game the chance to check it out for free. Ambush General Manager Brian Roth said, “Fan Fest gives a great opportunity to open the doors to the entire community and showcase our product to everyone at no cost. For those that have never seen a pro indoor soccer game before, it's a perfect chance for them to come check it out. From a production standpoint, we use our Fan Fest game as a dress rehearsal for the regular season for our Staff. We'll see what works and what doesn't work, maybe try a few new things, and get it all ready to go for the Home Opener on November 29th."

Ambush Head Coach Hewerton is looking forward to putting his team on the field for a preseason test. “Dallas is a great team and it’ll be a great test for us to know where we are at before our season opening,” he said. 

Fans will be invited to the field for a postgame autograph session with Ambush Players. Ambush season ticket holders will be able to pick up their season tickets and parking pass that night. On-field activities and the game are free. Concessions and Ambush merchandise will be sold throughout the event. 

The Ambush will kick off their seventh season in November, with their Home Opener slated for Black Friday, November 29, 2019 at 7:05 p.m. CT at the Family Arena. Season tickets for the 2019-20 season are on sale now and start at $168 which includes a ticket to all 12 home games plus a parking pass to each game. Single game tickets will go on sale through Ticketmaster by the end of October. Groups of 10 or more can purchase their discounted tickets now by calling the Ambush office at 636-477-6363.
