ELON, N.C. – The Elon University women’s soccer team is set to host Hispanic Heritage Night at Rudd Field on Sunday, Sept. 20, as they take on Charlotte at 6 p.m.
The evening is dedicated to the celebration of Hispanic Heritage month which began on Sept. 15 and goes until Oct. 15. It will be a night full of Latin music, Spanish, good food and the game of soccer. The event will start at 5 p.m. with a free soccer clinic for elementary school children offered by some members of the men’s team followed by the women’s soccer game at 6 p.m., which will include some Latin flavor.
Some of the added flavor to the soccer match includes a Spanish speaking PA announcer, Hispanic food sampling, Hispanic country flags on display around the field, and Latin pre-game music. You will also be able to follow the in-match updates live on twitter in both English and Spanish on the official Elon women’s soccer account at @ElonWSoccer.
Be sure to come out to the match to support the celebration and cheer on the women’s soccer team against the Charlotte 49ers at Rudd Field.
