Charleston Battery secures new land on Daniel Island for team and youth club
The Charleston Battery has secured additional land on Daniel Isalnd in order to develop a mult-field soccer complex on the south end of the island.
The Charleston Battery Foundation partnered up with Daniel Island Town Association that will include a 25-year lease for the space located two miles from MUSC Health Stadium.
The location will be used by the Charleston Battery and its newly reformed youth club, the Charleston Battery Soccer Club.
The professional club will use the space for additional training and as a host site for visiting Major League Soccer and United Soccer League teams. The youth club will be able to use it year-round for soccer activities.
“Securing a partnership with Daniel Island is immense for us,” said Charleston Battery Chairman Eric Bowman. ”The facility is conveniently located to the Battery's home stadium, which will serve as a constant reminder of the level that our elite youth players are trying to reach. We're proud to be the only club in Charleston with direct pathways to professional teams on both the girls and boys side, and the location of the new complex strengthens that idea.”
This partnership is a part of Charleston Battery Soccer Club’s plan to secure quality facilities across the Lowcountry.
"Securing these fields on Daniel Island is a step in the right direction towards providing any child who wants to play an opportunity," said Bowman.
