Dear Sky Blue & NWSL Fans,
I wanted to take this opportunity to convey my enthusiasm about the upcoming season as I step into the role of Interim General Manager for the club. Obviously, this has been a time of great transition for Sky Blue, and I am honored to accept this challenge from ownership as we navigate towards a positive future for the organization. We all share a great sense of optimism from the front office to the field and are dedicated to getting results this season, both on and off the pitch.
We look forward to sharing more stories of our players with you, highlighting them as professional athletes and as individuals off the field as well. I think we’ve all seen and felt the tides of change within the sport as we approach another exciting World Cup this summer, that’ll surely bring a new generation of fans into our world who we’ll welcome with open arms.
I also want to take a moment to thank Tony Novo for his unwavering dedication to the club for so many years. He was an ubiquitous part of Sky Blue and his passion and enthusiasm will carry on.
Coach Reddy has big plans for this season, and we all eagerly anticipate Saturday’s season opener in D.C. when we face off against the Washington Spirit. The players are ready, the club is ready, and we can’t wait to get this 2019 season started!
To the longstanding fans, and to Cloud 9, thank you for staying on this ride with us. I officially purchased my Cloud 9 membership last evening, and encourage you all to find ways to support your favorite club(s) as well.
We all have a major role to play in the success of our league, whether supporter, player, or sponsor so I want to thank all of you for standing by us, watching us move forward this season and keeping the positive momentum building. It is a privilege to take on this important responsibility and I am honored to be here in this role.
I can’t wait to see you all at Yurcak Field this season, or in venues around the league. Please be sure to say hello when you see me!
Yours in soccer,
