Five years ago, a small group of people got together with an idea of creating a soccer supporter’s group that would help grow the sport of soccer in San Antonio and hopefully bring a professional soccer team to the city they call home. This was the birth of the Crocketteers.

Five years pass and the Crocketteers boast over 1600 members, formed 9 adult and youth soccer teams, and support NASL 2012 Regular Season Champions the San Antonio Scorpions.

A lot has changed in five years. One example is the evolution of the Crocketteers scarf. You can find all the previous editions of the scarf on the new Discontinued Scarf Catalog page. Those scarves may no longer be available but the latest version can be snatched this Saturday at the opening tailgate of the Scorpions 2014 season. They are already available for purchase on the Merchandise page.

A big change this year is the way you purchase tickets to stand in The Garrison with the Crocketteers. For ANY Scorpions home game this year, you can purchase tickets directly from the Crocketteers by going to our Ticket page. Then, join the Crocketteers at their FREE tailgates to pick up your tickets.

One last thing, throughout the 2014 calendar year the Crocketteers will be having SPECIAL EVENTS that everyone is invited to! Some events already held this year include two Adopt A Highway cleanups, the Mexico vs South Korea tailgate and game, a Houston Dynamo vs Montreal Impact Crocketteers road trip, and the huge 400+ tailgate preceding the Scorpions 1 – 1 draw against MLS side FC Dallas. With the World Cup this year, you know the events will only get bigger! Check out the calendar for updated entries and join in the anniversary celebrations!

Prepare yourselves for the start of the 2014 season this Saturday. Your Gameday Preparation article will be waiting for you.
