Today for their first home opener, they won with a score of 5 to 2 and the fans loved every second of it.

"I think it’s awesome, I think Utica has shown that it's a great sports city over the years and I think the addition to soccer is fantastic. I've been a fan of soccer for years and I think this is going to go very well." Said fan Jack Williams

Fans like Mark Spiridigliozzi played soccer when they were in High School, this game brings back fond memories of the past. He even bought season tickets.

"Soccer brings back times for when I played in high school, it’s great for the community coming out here, seeing everybody play, everybody having a good time. I'm looking forward to this game and every game they have here.”

Nick and Michael Linder were always fans of soccer and were excited to see it being played here in Utica.
