The High Country Soccer Association is proud to announce that Booneshine Brewing Company is the new title sponsor of the Adult Soccer League. Booneshine replaces Appalachian Mountain Brewery, which has sponsored the league for the past 10 years.

“We are excited about our new partnership with Booneshine,” said HCSA Executive Director Rick Suyao. “AMB have been a fantastic partner over the past 10 years, and we appreciate everything they have brought to the adult league, but Booneshine, being right next to the Ted Mackorell Soccer Complex, is just a natural fit. There are so many partnership opportunities we can collaborate on.

This spring, there are four adult league levels: Gold, Silver, Bronze and 35+. Booneshine Adult League player skill levels range from recreational players and women of all ages (Bronze and 35+) to highly competitive players and college alumni (Gold Division). HCSA currently serves over 300 adult football players (in addition to providing youth training) in the NC High Country. The Boone-based football club is always looking for new ways to continue to grow the local football community to include all players and skill levels.

“At Booneshine Brewing, our mission is to make the High Country a better place,” says Tim Herdklotz, co-owner and president. “Supporting the High Country Soccer Association fits the mission perfectly. We look forward to the partnership.

The Booneshine Adult League is a 7v7 league played on half a regulation football pitch. Each team consists of 7 to 10 players. If you don’t have a team, visit the HCSA website at www.hcsoccer.com and register as a free agent to be placed on an existing team at the level of play you have requested.

The entry deadline for the Booneshine Adult League is March 8 and the season runs from March 15 through early May. Each team will play a minimum of eight league games, with each league having a playoff format based on the number of teams in the league.
