photo_15FC Denver is proud to announce an exclusive partnership with the number one soccer pub in the Denver Metro area; the British Bulldog. The British Bulldog has long been known amongst those in the Denver footy scene, but has recently undergone a reemergence under the tutelage of its new owners, the Little Pub Company (LPC). The LPC purchased the Bulldog over a year and a half ago and have instilled class and great service to what has always been an aesthetically cool locale.

Our partnership ranges from the big (upcoming tournaments, events, player referral, jersey recognition) to the more minute (discounts on food purchases, video watching availability, etc) and is geared towards the growth of both organizations and, possibly more importantly, promoting the love of the game in Denver and beyond. Our organizations share a uncannily similar desires to share our passion of the game with the broader community.

By combining efforts in several like-minded areas’ we can have a broader and more wide-ranging influence. One area that FC Denver is excited to put its support behind is the new Rapids Supporters group that the British Bulldog has organized called the “Bulldog Supporters Group” or “Bobbies” for short. FC Denver will be joining and chanting alongside the Bulldog Supporters group in the new Supporters Terrace Section of Dicks Sporting Goods Park.  Be sure to check back on the blog in the coming days for more information about getting involved with the Bulldog Supporters Group.

Our first official club event @ the Bulldog will be our FC Denver Spring 2010 Preseason Club party next Thursday evening March 4th from 6:30 – 9pm. We will also be organizing once or twice a week get-togethers at the Bulldog after games/practices so everyone can get to know Jon Forget (Bulldog GM), his friendly crew of employee’s, and all the great beers and food they have to offer.

We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship between our footy-loving organizations.

Here’s to the the Bulldog and FC Denver!!!
