Cat 5 is the heartbeat and the driving force of both Tormenta FC and Tormenta FC 2. The supporters in this group are some of the most passionate, energetic fans Tormenta FC has.
We are on our feet, waving flags, singing, and banging on drums all 90 minutes. We do everything with energy and passion and the intent of motivating our boys in blue and magenta.
Tormenta FC loves all of its supporters and fans, but joining a Supporters Group can really elevate one’s typical game-day, experience. The Supporter Section is the heartbeat of the stadium, the driving force behind the TFC every day, and the soul of game-day. Here, we support and promote all things Tormenta FC.
We are working hard to provide the Supporters Groups the best benefits and game-day experience - from tailgating space to early stadium entry, we want members of the Supporter Section to rock on game day.

Tormenta FC Smoke Device Policy:
All smoke devices must be a “cool burn” device, which burns at a safe temperature. It must have less than a two-minute release time and have a non-incendiary trigger. It must indicate a moderate level of smoke density and not a high-density smoke (military HD smoke). Sport Smoke and Enola Gay products currently meet these standards. The home team must purchase, store, and distribute all smoke devices. Supporters are not permitted to bring their own smoke devices into a venue.
Approved Timing and Method Use:
Devices can be deployed at the player walk-out, after a home goal, and at the end of match with a home win. Additional deployments must be approved by Tormenta FC and the League prior to the match. All use must follow the manufacturer’s safety and warning instructions. Devices can only be deployed in approved locations and cannot be deployed in general admission areas. Smoke devices cannot be held during the discharge of smoke. Teams must employ the use of a bucket, which the smoke device is deposited in once it is fired. The bucket should also have a lid to cover the bucket in case the smoke needs to stop.
Recommended safety gear should be employed when handling or around smoke devices. This gear may include gloves, masks, or eye equipment. All local and state regulations must be followed in the discharge of a device. The club/venue must meet with the fire marshal before any smoke device is allowed to be used to agree and document the conditions under which smoke devices can be used. Consideration should be given to weather, specifically wind and its direction, and humidity. The club and League reserve the right to discontinue the use of smoke device at any time, if it is deemed unsafe or is interfering with play.
Teams with supporters who wish to use smoke must have the sign a smoke device policy document. Each team will be provided with a template from USL League One. The team and the parties who wish to use smoke devices must sign this policy before any use. This policy must include a waiver, which excludes the team, venue, and USL League One from any liability associated with the use of a smoke device. Only persons who are in good standing with the club may be eligible to use smoke devices. These signed documents must be submitted to USL League One before smoke can be used in any venue. Any use of smoke device in a venue prior to the signed policy being submitted to the League will result in a fine. Travelling Supporters are not permitted to use smoke in an away venue.
In the case that a violation of the Supporters Group Code of Conduct were to occur, and is deemed severe enough by the Board of Directors, the membership of the violator may result in withdrawal, suspension, or expulsion. All disciplinary actions will go into effect immediately, and the duration of the punishment will be up to the discretion of the Board of Directors.
Tormenta FC and the United Soccer League thank you for adhering to the provisions of this Spectator Code of Conduct. Tormenta FC retains the right to change or modify this policy at any time.
