Matchday Experience

When We're Home

Pre-match Tailgate

Join us and the Lou City Tailgaters for all your pre-match festivity needs! Tailgating typically starts around four (4) hours prior to kickoff but you may find a few die-hards out there earlier. The tailgate is supporter run and supporter funded. We recommend BYOB and food contributions. If you do partake we ask that you contribute to the general fund. The main tailgate is located at the corner of N Preston St and E Witherspoon St in the Riverside Parking Cobalt Lot.

Pre-match March

About 30-40 minutes prior to kickoff we’ll start the March to the Match. Join us as we march around the tailgate lot, up Preston St, and into the east entrance. Flags will be waving, smoke will be popping, and we’ll be chanting and singing the whole way!

Post-match Celebration

After the match concludes, we have beers at Against the Grain which is conveniently located right outside the Slugger Field gate. Make sure you order a pint of the Coopers-inspired Ball Control! $0.50 from every pour (on home match days) of Ball Control goes to Shirley’s Way, a most excellent local charity helping families of those afflicted with cancer.

Songs & Chants

We’re loud. We’re proud. The drums never stop. Sing with us – and give our song sheet to people who aren’t! If you have any chant ideas that you think would be great for The Coopers, just let us know!

When We're Away

Several locations in the Louisville area have committed to showing the streams for Louisville City FC away matches. Check social media for the club sponsored official watch parties, or check out the match at one of these fine establishments.


Mention the word “tifo” to a casual LCFC fan, you’re still likely to get blank stares. On important match days, though, there’s usually something big going on before kickoff in the Preston End. Home openers, league matches with rivals, playoffs, cup matches – they’re all occasions to show the players on the field that the entire stadium stands behind them as one.

If you appreciate the importance of generating the home atmosphere at Slugger Field, and enjoy the coordinated displays, consider assisting in any manner you feel comfortable with – donation of money is much appreciated, as that of the time and space needed for tifo construction. Just let us know. We welcome you with open arms!
