Everything you need to know about Saturday’s game is below…

On Thursday, your Lubbock Matadors players and Notorious participated in a Kicking & Reading program at City of Lubbock Godeke Branch Library. Matadors read to the kids then played soccer. All participants received a Matadors Bookmark and a ticket to Saturday’s game. Like we said, we love our community!

On Friday, we have your Pre-Game meal plans taken care of, join Lubbock Matadors partner Parry’s for Dine to Donate. From 5-9pm on Friday, Parry’s will donate 20% to the Lubbock Soccer Association. Great food and helping a great organization like LSA.

A block from the Stadium is CR 2300 where the Lubbock Matadors will set up the popular pre-game block party from 5-7pm. Similar to last year, we’ll have Tents for shade, Mijo’s Food Truck, great Two Docs Beer, Kids Games, Live Music, Free Chiropractic Sessions and more. Party is FREE for all Fans. Fans who are 21+ will buy a $10 Beer Pass to get Two Docs Beer during the Two Hour Party. Pretty darn good deal, do the math! Get to Pirate Stadium early and join the Matadors for a great party before heading into Pirate Stadium for the game.
