LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville's professional soccer team kicked off its third season with a meet-and-greet.

Players from Louisville City FC gathered at Baptist Health Eastpoint on Friday night to get to know their fans. The event was free and open to the public.

Those who attended got to play a little foosball and take pictures inside a photo booth. Event-goers even had the opportunity to win a jersey and some tickets to a match.

"We're still fairly a new team, so it's great to interact with the community and try to spread the word about the team and the sport in the city," said Tarek Morad, a defender for Louisville City. "So it's been great putting on these events for the city."

Louisville City's opening game is Saturday, March 25.
