Greenville, SC - At the Greenville Chamber’s
129th Annual Meeting last night, President
and CEO Carlos Phillips announced that
the United Soccer League (USL) is in talks
to bring professional soccer to Greenville
beginning in the 2019 season.
The USL – one of the most prominent
Division II soccer leagues in the world – has
announced the launch of a new Division III
(D3) league to bring a proven, professional
soccer experience to new cities around the
country.
The league will initially launch in 8-12
markets. USL officials visited Greenville in
2017 and began discussions with the Greenville
Chamber along with several other
organizations and community leaders.
The league now is in talks with
potential local ownership and discussing
viable locations to construct a first-class
stadium. Plans call for the team to play in an
existing facility in the Greater Greenville area
for the 2019 inaugural season consisting of
about 14 home matches and several exhibition
matches scheduled from March to
mid-September. “Having a USL D3 franchise
in Greater Greenville would be a win for the
entire Upstate,” said Phillips. “Communities
around the country are seeing first-hand
how the presence of a USL franchise helps
them recruit companies and attract and retain
young professionals – the key demographic
for pro soccer, as well as a critically important
group in growing a vibrant economy.”
Greenville County is an ideal market for
the USL with a population of 500,000, key
demographics and a strong corporate presence
from companies like BMW, Michelin, GE,
TD Bank, Fluor and Samsung.
The Upstate boasts more than 8,000
youth soccer players, and 22 teams compete
in Greenville County’s recreational adult
soccer league. During the past five years,
South Carolina ranked second nationally for
growth in youth soccer participation for girls
and fifth nationally for participation in boys’
soccer. Clemson University and Furman
University are home to both storied and
nationally ranked men’s and women’s college
soccer teams.
