GRU & KW Company Roadtrip!

FC home opener and had a whole lot of fun doing it! We had a full bus of soccer fans heading into Toronto; after picking up a small Guelph contingent, the bus drove to Shoeless Joes where we were able to join in the revelry of the large amount of Toronto FC fans that gather there before a match each week.

Although the rain drove some people off-GRU and KW Company were not put off and joined in the march to the stadium. KW Company sported a fantastic sign, and GRU came prepared with a large banner that two of our members diligently prepared. We were able to unfurl the banner right in front of a TV camera, and were also able to drape it near the south end.

We hope that the momentum will continue to build! Make sure you check us out on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to hear about future events.

GRU & KW Company Welcomes the TFC Season!

On March 4th, members of17015686_10158270451115075_1554940537689266535_o Grand River Union and KW Company gathered at Shoeless Joe’s in Kitchener-Waterloo to enjoy beer, fellowship, food, and footy! Shoeless was kind enough to give us a great space to watch the game, and allow us to be the rowdy bunch of
soccer supporters that we wanted to be!

Although TFC didn’t come away with the 3 points that we were hoping for, that did not stop us from enjoying the game and the experience of coming together in our common love of the sport. Keep an eye on our Facebook page, and/or subscribe to our google calendar for information about future events: we will continue hosting viewing parties, and are excited about organizing a joint bus trip with the KW Company to attend the Toronto FC home opener! Interested, contact us!
