If there is a single word that describes the direction the new Fort Worth Vaqueros soccer team is taking, it would certainly be community.
Before the new National Premier Soccer League club even had a name, its goal was to reach out to the Fort Worth community and get it involved in the team.
It was the community that picked the name Vaqueros.
It was the community that picked the logo.
It was the community that picked the two scarves that Vaqueros fans will wear and wave.
The community will pick the music in the stadium.
The community first attitude is the product of owner Michael Hitchcock’s vision for Fort Worth and its new club, which began play May 9th at Fort Worth’s historic LaGrave Field featuring a post-game Fireworks Show.
“We knew from the beginning that we wanted this to be a team that truly let the supporters take charge in shaping the club’s identity,” Hitchcock said. “The fans and Fort Worth leaders have embraced that idea and have provided meaningful decisions in the club’s identity and future.”
