Originally established in Section 204 ahead of the RailHawks’ inaugural season, The Depot is the home of the RailHawks’ most passionate fans — standing, chanting, drumming, and singing as they urge their team on to victory for the full 90 minutes. In 2011, The Depot moved to its present location in Sections 309-310 of WakeMed Soccer Park. Beginning with the RailHawks’ final game of the 2015 season Friday, October 30th and for future seasons, the South Stand will now be dedicated as a supporters section.
While the Triangle Soccer Fanatics have always taken up residence in the Depot, the new supporters section in the South Stand will bring together all the RailHawks’ hardcore fans including the Oak City Supporters, the RailHawks’ newest supporters club.
As an added benefit to fans, season tickets in The Depot for the Carolina RailHawks’ 10th Anniversary Season will now include a membership in either of the RailHawks’ registered supporters clubs with each season ticket purchased. Fans will be able to select a membership in whichever club they prefer to join and receive all the benefits those individual clubs confer on their members above and beyond the normal benefits of being a season ticket holder.
TSF and OCS have been working with the RailHawks to develop plans to add a number of amenities to the South Stand that are targeted directly at the supporters including new concessions, in-stadium concession delivery, alternate seating options, and infrastructure to support dedicated capo stands and tifo banners for the supporters’ use. In addition, to further fuel the growth of its independent supporters clubs, the RailHawks will now contribute a portion of every ticket sold in The Depot to a matchday fund which can be utilized by the supporters clubs to fund the materials such as banners, flags, instruments, and other supplies they need to build an unassailable home-field advantage for the RailHawks.
RailHawks fans who prefer to sit in other sections of WakeMed Soccer Park can also help support the supporters by choosing to add a supporters club membership to their season ticket at a discounted price of $20, a 33% savings off a regularly-priced supporters club membership.
