About Amber

Amber was born and raised in Louisville. 

She has been married to Andy for 17 years this May and she has 2 children, Emmalea and Jacob. You’ll see Jacob at more games considering Emmalea is too cool to hang out with her parents now. 

She got into soccer when she met her husband. She became a fan when her daughter started playing. She’s been to almost every game since mid season of the first season and has been a season ticket holder since the 2nd season. 

She is an inaugural season ticket holder for Racing Louisville and can’t wait for the soccer season to start.

About Katie

Katie played YMCA soccer for a couple of years before moving to Sweden and then Switzerland, where her passion for the sport took off. She played every day at recess and would spend hours after school doing drills in the yard and learning through Youtube videos.

Her first club team was a Swiss boy’s team, so she was the only girl. Most of her friends were Barcelona fans, so Katie became one too. She was particularly drawn to Messi since they’re both lefty’s.

Katie’s first live game was Barcelona vs Valencia in 2010 at the Camp Nou when they still had Iniesta, Xavi, Puyol, and Messi among others. A year later, she started following the women’s game and the USWNT in their 2011 WC campaign.

HAO’s rocket versus Columbia and Abby’s infamous header had her *hooked*. She has been a fan ever since and attended the 2015 and 2019 WC Finals with her family.

Currently, Katie is a junior, an Econ/Finance and Spanish double major, and plays D3 for Centre College in Danville, KY.

She is hoping to use that degree and her soccer experiences to find a career that keeps her close to the sport. Recently, she also started customizing shoes with a Racing Lou FC-inspired design and is floored by the attention that it’s receiving!

Katie is hoping to see some fans wearing them at Lynn Family Stadium this year!

About Rebecca

Rebecca became a soccer/football fan in early 2014 after meeting someone from Manchester who explained the game to her.

In May of 2014, she met a charming fellow named Ken who also loved soccer (he was a lifelong fan of the other Manchester team, but this did not derail their relationship). Ken encouraged Rebecca to join The Coopers, a newly formed group trying to get a pro soccer team to come to Louisville.

As soccer became a bit of an obsession, Ken and
Rebecca spent many nights on their deck writing songs that could be sung at future games. Despite the great number of songs they wrote for the first season, very few survive to this day.

Ken, being the boisterous type, was one of the first capos. Since Rebecca wanted to be near him at games, she stood near the drums in the supporter’s section. Then one fateful day, she was asked to play…and she’s been banging away on a barrel drum ever since.
