FC Buffalo's soccer team sending Fan Faces to support the Beauts in Lake Placid

by Mario Forno

National Premier Soccer League team FC Buffalo is supporting their fellow Buffalonians, the Buffalo Beauts. FC Buffalo will be sending cutouts of their players, staff members, mascot, and even some of their fans to the Lake Placid bubble to cheer on the Beauts. The NWHL's bubble season takes place in Lake Placid from Jan. 23 -- Feb. 5. 

"FC Buffalo is proud that Buffalo is fortunate to have one of the six NWHL teams," said FC Buffalo co-owner Nicholas Mendola." The Beauts are a founding member - and a four-time finalist no less - in the backyard of one of the best hockey towns in the world. As a club in a rising sport who underwent intense precautions to play in two tournaments last summer, we understand the tremendous challenges of playing the sport we love safely during a pandemic and we want to do everything we can help to support the Beauts in their quest to become the first team to win two Isobel Cups. Let's get it!"  

Much in the same way that the Beauts have players from across the globe, FC Buffalo has players of a wide variety of nationalities. The soccer club includes players from Kenya, Jamaica, Italy, Canada, and the USA, among others. The support that the Beauts are receiving from the team is another example of why Buffalo lives up to its "City of Good Neighbors" moniker. 

"We are very thankful for the support that FC Buffalo has shown the Beauts," said Buffalo GM Nate Oliver. "It's wonderful to have partners within our own city who believe in women's hockey, and who are encouraging us to bring another championship home to Buffalo."

Beauts Fan Faces are available to order until Jan. 15 at nwhl.zone/tickets.
