Definitely where we want to be, need to expand to 5000 seats per USSF DII minimum standards. Working on it https://t.co/T1OqmygPHq— Jake Reid (@JakeReid33) February 18, 2019
For me its simple...invest back into the community and be transparent with the brand. Local ownership key as well. https://t.co/DKPzJyo7SF— Jake Reid (@JakeReid33) February 18, 2019
