Record Crowd Watches Vipers Tie Chelsea

40,462 Fans filled the seats of Greensboro FC Stadium to watch the 5-0-0 Vipers play the 3-0-2 Chelsea side to a 3-3 draw.
Even though the result was slightly disapointing, the night is significant and symbolic for the Greensboro Franchise. Just 5 seasons ago the team broke into the league, and now it is clear that the Vipers are a force in the USA league, and will be for the years to come.
Greensboro visits Black M.O.B. tomorrow, then come back to Greensboro for a 3 game homestand. Greensboro has a great chance to be 9-1-0 after the next 4 games.
Owner Chris Fields to the fans "Your support has always been top notch, and your effort tonight was no different. We hope to see all of you and 6,000 more of your closest Vipers friends in 2 days when we return home."
