RICHMOND, Va. – The Richmond Kickers and the Richmond Strikers plan to celebrate the life of David Bulow in a pregame ceremony at Saturday’s June 5 match at City Stadium.
Taking place shortly before Saturday’s 6:30 pm kickoff,  the ceremony will be led by representatives of both the Kickers’ organization and Bulow’s Richmond Strikers U19 Boys and Girls Elite Teams. A special tribute penned by members of both organizations will be read aloud over the public address during the ceremony. There will be a collection point inside City Stadium where fans can drop off cards or write memories of David that will be presented to the Bulow family.
Bulow, a long-time fixture in the Richmond soccer community as a player and coach for the Richmond Kickers' professional and youth sides, Richmond United academy teams, and, most recently, a coach with the Richmond Strikers youth teams, passed away on May 6, 2021. He was 41.
