We aren’t the biggest supporters group in the league, but we are growing. Besides, what we lack in numbers, we make up in passion. The home-opener against the Rochester Rhinos was a pretty big success on the pitch and in the supporters section. We got lots of positive feedback from DDLFC staff, players, and casual fans. Below are some of the pictures and comments that I could find via social media.
The first one was taken by a fan in the main stands and was Tweeted during the match. It’s taken from far away (presumably with a cell phone), but it shows all of us and our sign behind the south goal.

This next comment comes from a guy who has been following DDLFC for a while, but made his first venture into the supporters section against Rochester. (We agree with his statement wholeheartedly!)

Here are three nice shots of us taken by stellar photographer and Oranje Legion member, Jeremi Blurton. The first is a close-up in the daylight before the match started, showing flags, vuvuzelas, and Brian’s giant flogger.
Here we are gathered together to applaud the lads’ efforts as they leave the field. I think we look like a more formidable group like this. Want to try to sit closer together during the next match?
This last one not only looks cool, but it came with a special message. First, the picture:
Now the message:
This was our first soccer game ever and we sat in the supporter section. It was amazing, and this photo is when the Lions scored against the Rhinos near the end of the game. Just amazing time when it happened!! Hopefully you like the picture!
We helped to make someone’s first soccer game “amazing”. I can’t tell you how much it means to hear this. This is the effect that we can have. Let’s keep it going. I challenge each of you to bring someone else to their first match and have them stand with us.
