While not everyone in Landfall, NC is a soccer enthusiast, for those of us who are and who enjoy professional sports the Wilmington Hammerheads should not be missed. Wilmington was awarded its first professional sports team in 1996 and, competing in the USL Second Division, are in their 14th season. The Hammerheads, a locally owned and operated franchise, are a significant part of the local community.
The Team makes its home at Legion Stadium, a county owned and operated complex, which seats about 6,000 and includes handicapped seating for 40. There are 4 acres of paved parking, fully equipped concessions, and field houses for home and visitors as well as a press box with public address system.
The Hammerheads also have a a Camp and Clinic Program giving over 500 kids from Wilmington, NC and beyond professional instruction from their players and coaching staff and providing positive role models for these aspiring young soccer players.
The regular season runs through mid August, so there’s still time for Landfall real estate owners to get a ticket and cheer on what could very well be a playoff team this year! For more information log onto wilmingtonhammerheads.com and join the fun!.
