WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
Quite simply, “ONE CLUB ONE LOVE”, says the Charlotte Independence Soccer Club and Charlotte Independence stands firmly against racism. Period. We respect all players, opponents, coaches, referees, and parents. We love and embrace our differences – our looks, accents, sensibilities, backgrounds, and beliefs. We believe these differences make us strong and the game “beautiful”. We believe in the power of inclusion and oneness to establish a safe and enjoyable environment where the player and character development can be amplified. While our LOVE for the game brings us together, we can only be successful if we play together as one team with one goal. We embody that.
