Nine Can’t Miss Things to Do During a Defiance Match

Matchdays start 90 minutes before kickoff and end with player autographs. Fill every moment with awesome.

1. Defiantly Tacoma Happy Hour
Start matchday with a short climb up to R Bar. Every single match has $2 beers with Fast Track Fridays (presented by Lunazul) and Saturdays’ Defiantly Tacoma Happy Hour (presented by Alaskan Brewing).

2. The Fire Place and a View of Rainier
Up on the deck above the NW corner is the largest outdoor fireplace in an American stadium. Put that fire at your back and look towards the southeast corner of the pitch – hello, Mt. Rainier.

3. We R Tacoma Team Store
Of course you’ll find the same kits the Men in Black wear, but there’s also plenty of gear to show your Defiantly Tacoma spirit with shirts, caps, hoodies, and more.

4. Mary Bridge Children’s MultiCare Family Pavilion
When your kids are full of energy there’s one way to solve it – the playground. Slides, ladders, and a rope bridge are there to keep the little ones fit.

5. Wave the Flag of Defiance
Every match behind the South Goal and the supporters you can borrow a Tacoma Defiance flag to wave in support of the team and our community.

6. Halftime Shows that Make You Want to Stay in Your Seat
Games like “What’s in the Bag”, a skit involving a real squid, performances by Epic Sax Gorilla – Cheney Stadium halftime shows are as memorable as the matches.

7. Cider House Rules
Hot soccer summers sometimes call for a lighter adult beverage. Our newest drinking establishment has hard seltzer, chilled wines, and of course local ciders.

8. Find Jack: Bear of Defiance
Most bears avoid crowds, but Jack is your new best friend. Jack didn’t learn soccer during his time at the Tacoma Hotel. Now he loves to take in a game, usually with a beer in hand.

9. Post Match Autographs and Selfies
Every match, right underneath the posters in the West Concourse, you can meet players just after the final whistle.
