IT’S IN THE CARDS


As part of its marketing partnerships with Sky Blue FC and Philadelphia Independence, Sports Vue is creating a series of player autograph cards for each team. Cards of selected players will be distributed at home games throughout the summer.

The full color 4x6 cards feature the player’s photo on the front, and some “bubble gum card” type facts on the back, along with another photo.

“Anyone who knows the game, and those who follow it, knows that fans love giveaways, and these keepsake cards are a perfect complement for the fans of Sky Blue FC soccer,” said Sky Blue General Manager Gerry Marrone.

The first card give away was Sunday June 6 when Sky Blue played the Philadelphia independence at John Farrell Stadium on the campus of West Chester University. The first 1,000 fans attending received a card of Independence midfielder Lori Lindsey. Fans attending Sky Blue's home game when the two teams meet again on June 19 will receive a card of Sky Blue midfielder Heather O'Reilly.
