USL Soccer, so I guess it’s like minor league MLS
« on: March 11, 2019, 05:50:12 PM »
So I went to the inaugural Legion FC Match yesterday.   It appears they’re in the USL Championship Division.   

They lost 2-nil to Bethlehem Steel FC.   They say there was 5800 there.  Not a bad stadium on the UAB campus.

Bunch of MSL II teams in the USL Championship league.  Might be interesting.



They have a Good Peoples Brewing Deck in one end zone I might try next time.

Beth Steel are generally pretty good, they have traditionally played a good amount of MLS talent on their teams. I feel like they send players up and down more than most MLS teams do.

Interesting.   Legion FC blew a lot of chances.

So I was looking at a full line-up of USL Champonship League teams, and I see the Swope Park Rangers (Sporting KC) on the list among many associated with MLS franchises.   I was only familiar with USL in name and hadn't realized there were so many MLS ties, and also teams located in many major markets.   Adds an air of legitimacy that until now I didn't fully understand.    Swope Park comes to BHAM in April.
