The Roustabouts are the main supporters group of the Tulsa Roughnecks FC, a men’s soccer team playing in the USL. The Roughnecks play at ONEOK Field in downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma. Roughnecks FC are in their inaugural season and the Roustabouts will have watch parties, tailgates and other events throughout the year to bring soccer fans together.
What is a Roustabout? In the oil field, a Roustabout is the person who supports the Roughnecks on the rig. They do whatever is needed on the rig and must be versatile and willing to do whatever the crew needs.
We love the Roughnecks, and we love soccer. Most of all, we love Tulsa. Our desire is to see the sport we can’t get enough of become a force in the city. We express that through our support of the Roughnecks. We want all of Tulsa soccer to succeed and compete at the highest level possible. No matter the league, level, age or gender, we love Tulsa soccer.
With our hearts on our sleeves and voices in the stands, the Roustabouts will fill ONEOK Field with songs, scarves, flags and banners. Our Blue and Orange passion flows onto the pitch anywhere our Roustabouts go. Adopting principles from the supporters groups in the MLS, Premier League and across Europe, the Roustabouts bring part festival, part mosh pit, part revival meeting, part Christmas morning, filled with people from every part of the community and every walk of life. The Roustabouts turn every game into a celebration of its love of Tulsa, of soccer and of the hard-working Roughnecks. If you like your sports passionate instead of passive, if you’re proud of the 918, if you appreciate “the beautiful game.”
About The Rig
The Roustabouts stand in Section 101 & 102. Inside The Rig you will find the most die-hard supporters of the Roughnecks. Drums, flags and scarves are common things found on a Roustabout. Chants, songs, heckling and colorful commentary are all led by the Roustabouts. Plan to stand the entire game, as the energy level will be at 100 percent from start to finish.
Roustabouts members, whether they have purchased a ticket in The Rig or a season ticket elsewhere in the stadium, are allowed to enter The Rig when they show their current-year member card to the steward at the top of entrance 101/102. If you are not a paid Roustabouts member, you must have a game day supporter’s section ticket to stand in The Rig.
