The Barton St. Battalion are an independent supporters group founded for the purpose of supporting the yet to be announced professional Hamilton Soccer Team. Expected to be announced in 2017, a new professional Canadian league will be launched across the country with Hamilton to be receiving one of the new soccer franchises.
Since being founded in February of 2016, the Battalion have built a positive relationship with the Tigercats and look to build a strong fan base within the city. While it may be early to begin supporting a team yet to exist, we are a group that stands for supporting soccer while reflecting the ambition of Hamilton itself. An official announcement is not needed to showcase our passion for the game as we help build the strong soccer community that Hamilton already harbors.
As a soccer fan or Hamiltonian, we hope you’ll join us.
