With newly acquired head coach Preki in tow, the Sacramento soccer project has swung into full gear.
On Thursday evening following a match between the Sacramento All-Stars and the San Jose Earthquakes reserves, Sacramento Republic FC was unveiled, showing off the new name and crest for a team entering USL Pro next season.
The crest features a star in the middle of a badge logo, which according to the club symbolizes the city’s stature as capital of California. The logo also features a bear on it, which is the official California state animal.
Republic FC will begin next season as just one of four teams west of the Mississippi River in USL Pro, along with fellow expansion side Oklahoma City FC, Phoenix FC, and the Los Angeles Blues.
What do you think of this news? Do you believe Sacramento can support a soccer team? Do you see the Earthquakes forming a partnership with the club next season?
