About The Ledgehogs
Our roots trace back to 2017, when a small group of friends loosely organized to attend Louisville City’s epic post-season matches, and celebrated the Boys in Purple’s first USL Championship from the vantage point of a baseball stadium suite.
The group kept the fun going through the next couple seasons in the ballpark, despite sightlines and beer lists that were not ideal for watching soccer. When Louisville City leadership announced plans for the new Butchertown stadium, our group explored the various season ticket seating options and ultimately landed at the “ledge tables,” which while providing an optimum view of the pitch, also foster a laid back, social atmosphere that befits our group.
With the opening of Lynn Family Stadium in 2020, we harkened the spirit of our new Butchertown home, and adopted the Ledgehogs name and identity. Both Louisville City FC and Racing Louisville FC recognized the ‘hogs as an official supporters group in 2021.
While the stadium location inspired the formalization of our group, Ledgehog membership is open to anyone. After all, “Livin’ on the Ledge” is about more than a seating area… It’s a vibe.
