The Charleston Battery is expanding the food offering at its minor league pro soccer games thanks to a new partnership with the Hall Management Group, whose restaurant roster includes Halls Chophouse, Slightly North of Broad, Rita’s Seaside Grille and High Cotton, along with catering arm Halls Signature Events.
Fans who attend games at the Battery’s Patriots Point stadium on July 7, Aug. 6, Sept. 7 and Oct. 2 will be able to stop by the Battery Pavilion inside the stadium to order “favorites off the menus of S.N.O.B., High Cotton and Rita’s Seaside Grille,” a press release said.
“Hall Management Group and their portfolio of award-winning restaurants are historic staples in the Charleston community,” Battery director of business development Ryan Knapp said in the release. “Bringing the best that Charleston has to offer to fans at Patriots Point has been our focus from day one. With our new partnership, we’re excited for Hall to provide tasting menus from their famous restaurants for fans to enjoy at Patriots Point throughout the season.”
Since moving to Patriot’s Point this season after spending two decades in Daniel Island’s Blackbaud Stadium, which became the first soccer-specific stadium in the U.S. when it opened in 1999, the Battery has made an effort to attract fans with a locally focused food and beverage offering. The stadium already offers food from Home Team Barbecue and Coastal Crust, and the team recently debuted a specialty beer brewed by Rusty Bull Brewing Co. called the Striker’s Wit that will be available at all remaining home games.
The Battery, currently in sixth place in the Eastern Conference’s Atlantic Division, will take on the second place Pittsburgh Riverhounds Wed., July 7 at 7:30 p.m., the first night of the partnership with the Hall Management Group. For more information, visit charlestonbattery.com.
