Peoria City Soccer breaks attendance record in home opener

(PEORIA, Ill. | May 21, 2023) — Soccer plays in Peoria, and the fans came out to prove it!

Smashing the single-game attendance record, 1,373 supporters came out to cheer Peoria City on Friday night.

The 309, Peoria City’s official supporters group, led the way with chants, cheering and drumming. Many of the 309 loyal showed up to tailgate beginning at 4:00 PM, over 3 hours ahead of kick off!

Fan experience is top of mind for this year’s soccer season. Not only are we committed to putting out a top-tier soccer product led by incredible athletes around the world, we want to make the experience before, during and after the game something to remember.

With food and dessert trucks coming to each game, we plan to do that. Next Friday’s home match will have 5!

Thank you to all the supporters, local businesses, and sponsors who help make all this happen. We look now to get back to training and bringing home the season’s first victory next week!

“Peoria will play home to future stars of American soccer.”
- Jim DeRose, Bradley University Head Soccer Coach
