“Baton Rouge is one of the larger markets in the United States without professional soccer, and a USL club with men’s and women’s teams would be a tremendous addition to an already vibrant community and passionate sports town,” Justin Papadakis, United Soccer League Deputy CEO, said in a statement.



Speaking of which, has anyone heard anything new regarding the USL team in New Orleans? Felt like there hasn't been any news on that lately.

Maybe St George can convince them to start a franchise here? Make all that land at Harveston/Bluebonnet a big multi use complex with a stadium for football, track and soccer and municipal offices for St George.

Don’t make the same mistake as Birmingham and put it downtown. Build a SSS in the burbs somewhere.

Last I heard they were looking for a main owner investor from the area but no one has stepped forward. People speculating they are waiting on Benson to make a move but doesn’t look likely. I’d be surprised if they have a team here.
