Leicester Blue Sox will be celebrating their 10th Anniversary in 2016 with a series of special events throughout the season.
Opening Day - Sunday 17 April
Leicester Blue Sox will open the season at home against the Long Eaton Storm on Sunday 17 April.
On the day, we are hoping to start the season with some razzmatazz at Western Park. Following some recent funding from sponsors, we hope to unveil new vertical banners which will become regular features at games and special events, in addition to new seating for our players.
Additionally, the date marks the start of the season for our littlest sluggers when our Little Sox programme will take to the field for the first time in 2016.
Western Park Festival - Saturday 9 July
After a year away, Leicester Blue Sox will be returning to the Western Park Festival as part of our mid-season 10th Anniversary celebrations.
We are planning an exclusive range of 10th Anniversary give-aways, merchandise and apparel which will be exclusively available at the Western Park Festival.
Full details will be announced in the coming months; in the meantime you can bookmark this event via the below Facebook invite:
Legends Game + 10th Anniversary celebration/2016 awards evening - Saturday 1 October
To round off our 10th Anniversary season, the club is planning a day and night event on Saturday 1 October
The day event will comprise a 'Legends game' featuring a team of star Blue Sox players of the past against the current Leicester Blue Sox first team.
Celebrations will then continue into the evening at the Goals Soccer Centre Sports Lounge, where we will hold a ticket-only reception to mark our 10th Anniversary with all sections of the club, past and present.
The event will also incorporate our 2016 awards, which for the first time in our history will cover all sections at the club on one special night - making it a true Blue Sox Family occasion.
Our committee is working hard behind the scenes planning these events and we will update you with more details as they become confirmed.
