    Did not see that Hankinson was on a paid leave of absence. Nothing about him being done yet, but it could be that he’s done?

    No idea. I have seen nothing since the original announcement.

    Yikes. Guess those stadium issues were as bad as originally speculated.

    Sigh. MUSC Health (nee Blackbaud) Stadium and it's Three Lions Pub are one of the early treasures of the modern era of soccer history in the United States.

    It's probably better news than the current owner keeping them.

    Sad turn of events. Wonder if they relocate immediately or if they take a year off.

    What a shame.

    But, without a viable stadium solution, it was predictable

    Sucks for Reno I’d imagine to lose Sac to MLS (soonish) and now Fresno (now) in short order...

    Definitely. Between Fresno, Reno, and SRFC, there was a nice little Northern California plus Reno USL group. There is still talk of an East Bay USL team, and I supposed it's possible that SRFC will want an affiliated USL team once they join MLS. (Of course, the East Bay team may become SRFC's affiliate.) But generally I do think the USL should have a Central Valley presence, and Fresno really is the best prospect for that outside Sacramento. Like I said, it's too bad they couldn't work a stadium deal in Fresno.

    Given the fact that USL would like there to be an even number of teams for scheduling purposes (probably), it'll depend on the situation with Ottawa and any MLS2 clubs. They know Nashville is leaving next year to MLS, so if they have an odd number of teams, they'll likely have them prop up in a temporary spot elsewhere while they figure out a permanent location.

    Game over for Ottawa Fury. Their sanction was denied by the CSA and CONCACAF according to sources. They won't be in USL in 2020
