TAMPA, Fla. -- The United Soccer League and Future Legends Complex today announced the addition of Northern Colorado FC to USL League One. The club will begin play in the 2022 season. With the announcement, the club becomes the second addition to the league for the 2022 season alongside fellow League One entrant Central Valley Fuego FC.
“It’s an exciting day for League One,” said USL Senior Vice President Steven Short. “Under the leadership of the Katofsky family and the talented staff at the Future Legends Sports Complex, Northern Colorado FC will be a strong addition to the League One family. We look forward to seeing all that they can accomplish in our growing league.”
Northern Colorado FC is majority-owned by the Katofsky family and Future Legends ownership group, who are the lead developers and co-founders of Future Legends Sports Complex. The club will play in a state-of-the-art multi-purpose professional sports stadium at Future Legends Complex, a new 118-acre sports and entertainment facility currently under construction and set to open in spring 2022.
“Building Future Legends Complex, with the goal of sports for all ages and skill levels, has been a dream of mine for decades. Northern Colorado FC is a huge part of that dream, showcasing professional soccer and making it accessible,” said Northern Colorado FC Owner and Future Legends CEO Jeff Katofsky. “We want everyone who comes to visit Future Legends and see Northern Colorado FC play, whether they come from the local area or across the nation, to feel that they can reach their dreams too.”
