What is the Fight’s history in Conshohocken?
2009 – Present
In ’09, The Fight needed to find a better stadium and location to play. What we found was the A.A. Garthwaite Stadium, also known as the “A Field”.
We also look to promote and partner with local community organizations such as: St. Clair CPA’s and Conshohocken Health & Fitness.
