Illinois Fusion is pleased to announce our new partnership with the Bloomington Normal Chapter of the American Outlaws (AO).
Nationally, AO supports the USA Men's National Team (USMNT) and USA Women's National Team (USWNT) by attending games or watching match games at sponsoring locations if they can't attend in person. Locally, they meet at Pub2 for all USMNT games and also support local soccer through their adult teams and more. Membership is $25 a year and comes with a host of benefits, but you don't have to be a member to join them for a game, events or our team. At our most basic level, they are here to support and grow soccer locally.
