Hey Falcons,

There's so much coming up! Pride is around the corner, as well as summer soccer. Let's get into it.

  • Saturday Pickup ends May 29: Join the Falcons for pickup at the outdoor fields at Palumbo Rec Center on Saturday nights from 7pm - 9pm through the end of May. We will break into a few games for different levels or groups if we have a large group. Read pickup guidelines here.
  • Philly Pride & Outfest: The official Philly Pride has been pushed back to September 4th this year. The organizers hope the delay will allow more meaningful in-person events to be held, as more Covid restrictions may have been lifted by then. Updates on planning and events can be found on the Philly Pride Presents Facebook page. On the flip side, OutFest, which usually happens in October, has been cancelled for 2021.
  • Falcons Pride Events in June: Though the city won't officially be celebrating yet, the Falcons plan to hold a few socially-distant events during the month of June to celebrate Pride. We are planning a soccer tennis tournament, drag soccer/show, and a watch party for a Union game. Keep an eye out for more information on these events soon. Funds raised during our Pride events will support the Falcons and the Attic Youth Center, which supports LGBTQ youth in Philadelphia.
  • Upcoming Tournaments: The Icarus Cup will take place this July 10 and 11 on Drexel's campus. There will be 3 divisions and games will be 7v7, two 20-minute halves. If you're interested in playing on a team with the Falcons, let us know here so we can plan our teams. // Due to ongoing Covid restrictions across Europe, we've decided not to go to Copenhagen this summer for World Pride and the EuroGames tournament. This just gives us more time to plan for Gay Games in 2022... Hong Kong, here we come!
  • Falcons Summer League: Falcons leagues are almost here! We are working on securing a field for our summer league. We expect to start the first week of July and run through late August. Keep an eye out for sign-up information in late May/early June!
  • Falcons Membership: In June, we will open registration for membership for the second half of the year. The fee will be $30. Membership will be required to participate in summer league, pickups, and any Falcons teams.

Phew! If you have any questions or suggestions, please reach out to me at communications@phillyfalcons.org or to any board member.

Yours in soccer,

Colleen
