    This may be interesting if San Diego begins play in 2020; the Nashville USL team presumably bites the dust as Nashville begins MLS play. Would USL try to get Ottawa out to go from 36 to 34 teams? Would anyone change conferences?

    With a 2021 start date, East Bay (Oakland) and Chicago are scheduled to join USL-C also. Presumably Austin Bold dies in the wake of Austin FC; what remains to be seen is if one of Saint Louis or Sacramento move up in 2021 as well, or if MLS even just goes straight from 26 to 29 (Austin, Saint Louis, Sacramento) or even 30 Las Vegas/Indy Eleven/whomever).

    awesome news!

    stoked SD will finally get an outdoor pro soccer team again.
    Best thing about it, decent people behind it with Landon Donovan and the USL Sacramento start up guy.

    Excited. happy, and ready to plop down a season ticket deposit but you'll forgive us for still being cautious after the numerous false dawns that we have seen.

    Yeah I mean how many have we had in just the last few years? SoccerCity, 1904FC, Albion, and I’m sure I’ve forgotten a few.

    That said, this seems far less pie in the sky since it’s has known successful quantities fronting it, an actual venue, etc...

    Albion is still playing. Four years of NPSL action under their belt, but no mythical angel investor to propel them up the tiers.

    USL San Diego is awesome news. I received a phone call from USL San Diego's front office, yesterday to thank me for signing up for the newsletter. When I ask about season seats they told me to read the newsletter. I ask about the names under consideration for the club. Especially about "San Diego FC". Which I was informed that it's one of the favorites. I told them that I had created a crest for the club when they were looking to get into MLS. He then encouraged me to post it on social media. So here you go, my idea for the San Diego Football Club.
