Reno Awarded United Soccer League Franchise
The Reno Aces have announced they will have another team competing at the downtown ballpark soon - a professional soccer team.
The controlling interests of the team - mainly the Aces brass - announced Wednesday, the United Soccer League has awarded a franchise to Reno and they'll hold a press conference next Wednesday to officially introduce the team.
As of right now, there's still no name for the franchise and other details will be revealed at the press conference, although it is expected to begin competing in 2017.
This is a little recent USL action from their website –it’s currently a 24-team league that functions as minor leagues for Major League Soccer
