The annual "Meet The Team" event is always one of the nicest outings of the year. The 2011 version was held today at Chitown Futbol in Pilsen. A large fan turnout gathered to meet and greet players and staff for autographs, play video games, and other soccer themed activities. The turnout appeared to dwarf the attendance at previous season's Meet the Team events.
The Fire reserves played to a 0-0 draw against NSC Minnesota in the morning at Toyota Park's practice field. Both Bratislav Ristic and Marko Maric saw game action. Victor Pineda also played at right back instead of holding midfield where he is usually slotted.
