Nottingham Forest Comes To Blackbaud.
This is the third consecutive year that the Battery has brought an English side to Charleston for a summer game; in 2010 the Battery hosted Bolton Wanderers and in 2011 the Battery played Portsmouth FC.
Nottingham Forest are managed by Steve Cotterill who managed Portsmouth FC last year. Cotterill took over at Forest in October 2011.
“Everybody at Nottingham Forest are really looking forward to the game in Charleston,” said Cotterill. “The reception received last year was second to none, we made a lot of friends and I am really looking forward to reuniting with them again this year.”
n-Power Championship side Nottingham Forest are one of the most historic clubs in English soccer. Forest, as they are usually called, are one of just two English clubs to have won back-to-back European Cups (now known as the Champions League), having won in 1979 and 1980 under legendary manager Brian Clough.
The Battery was originally scheduled to play Orlando City in Orlando on July 28 – that match has been moved forward to Friday, July 27
