STATESBORO, Ga. – Today, South Georgia Tormenta FC has announced a friendly wager between Tormenta FC owner Darin Van Tassell and Greenville Triumph SC owner Joe Erwin over which team will win the season series.
It all began when Tormenta FC Owner Darin Van Tassell called Greenville Triumph SC Owner Joe Erwin to suggest that “there should be a wager on our season series.” Erwin’s response was, “by all means, and I’ll make the first overture as to what my Triumph offering will be.”
If Tormenta wins the season series, Erwin will gift a “Greenville’s Best” Gift Basket comprised of: a six-pack of Riot Blonde Ale from Triumph partner Brewery 85, a bag of Triumph coffee from club partner Bridge City Coffee and a smoked USDA Whole Prime Brisket from Bobby’s BBQ in Fountain Inn, SC.
Van Tassell responded with an equally extravagant wager featuring a six-pack of Eagle Creek Brewery’s Blood of the Ibis, a bag of coffee from club partner Three Tree Coffee, and the “best chopped pork BBQ from Statesboro’s famous Vandy’s.”
With the first leg of the series to be played in Greenville tonight, the anticipation is high, with Erwin stating that he was glad to wager such an overwhelmingly valuable package, telling Van Tassell, “It’s fine; I could have included more. Because it doesn’t matter – you’re not going to win it.”
Van Tassell responded that he wasn’t even going to bother putting his basket together, as it wouldn’t be needed.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Legacy Early College. Fans can watch every game of the 2020 League One season from the comfort of your own home via ESPN+ domestically and YouTube internationally.
