The end of a trilogy is here but the beginning of the fun is 44 days away. In bringing you this series on the members of FC Edmonton‘s Supporter Group, the River Valley Vanguard (RVV), I easily could have done a countdown right to the beginning of the season on May 4th. The series is done so early to try and bring some recognition to some of Edmonton’s finest soccer ambassadors. Whether it is the Eddies or the RVV who throw a pub night, the hope is if you know the name behind the faces you will feel more comfortable to introduce yourself to them and ask questions. As a “family” we all joined together and resurrected FC Edmonton. As a growing family we can help make the Eddies the strongest foe in the Canadian Premier League (CPL). Without further adieu, the final four introductions.
I have been basically a life long soccer fan dating back to the Drillers of the original NASL in 1979 and have followed all the incarnations of pro soccer in Edmonton. Watching England and Germany soccer as a kid gave me the bug and Liverpool is the Premier League club I support.
I’m Adam. I moved to Edmonton from Medicine Hat in 2008 and never left. I always loved soccer and went to my first game in 2012, and bit the bullet and bought season tickets in 2013. My other side is Schalke 04 so having colours in common is convenient. Fun fact about me: I’m fluent in French too
Hi I’m Tobi. If you’re on twitter you probably know me as @FTofD (currently Tosaint Ricketts in a bespoke FC Edmonton kit). I’m from the Philippines but have lived abroad for most of my childhood and moved to Edmonton for university close to 12 years ago. Went to the first FCE friendly—a 3-0 win over Montreal’s reserves—in 2010 and haven’t looked back.
Hi I’m Noah and I’m an addict. Jk. I am a first year FCE fan attending my first game last year but I immediately fell in love with the team and since then have gone to every FCE event that I can and have tried however i could to bring FCE back. Bring on 2019!
52 days away from the Club’s home opener at Clarke Stadium, everyone is ready to breakout the chant book and go hoarse in support of the Eddies. If you have never been to a FC Edmonton game, put it on your to-do list. I speak from personal experience in saying that soccer does not need to be your favourite sport to thoroughly enjoy an afternoon or evening watching the Eddies play footie. If you need a little more encouragement to attend a game, sit by the RVV - they made a season ticket holder out of this non-soccer guy!
