[USL PRO 2014 COUNTDOWN] The Wilmington Hammerheads became the eighth USL PRO club to sign a partnership agreement with an MLS club, signing a one-year deal with Toronto FC to receive a minimum of four players on loan during the 2014 season.

Toronto coaches will observe Wilmington training sessions and games, and Wilmington coaches will also attend Toronto FC’s preseason in Florida in February.

MLS/USL PRO Partnerships:
D.C. United/Richmond
New England/Rochester
Sporting KC/Orlando City-OKC Energy FC
Toronto FC/Wilmington

COMBINE UPDATE. Rosters have been announced for the six teams taking part in the USL PRO Combine that begins Thursday at IMG Academy. Eight of the nine scrimmages will be streamed live on the USL PRO YouTube channel by Tourbeau Sports

USL PRO Combine: Rosters

PHOENIX MOVES AGAIN. Under new management, Phoenix FC will play the 2014 USL PRO season in the West Valley at the Peoria Sports Complex, located in the heart of the P83 Entertainment District. It will play its games in the main stadium, which will be reconfigured for soccer for the season. It's the third home for Phoenix FC, which began its first season the 2013 season playing at Arizona State University's Sun Devil Stadium, the women's soccer stadium, in Tempe, but moved for its final games to Reach 11, a youth sports complex, where attendance, already on the decline from the 4,198 fans for its opener, plummeted.

    Where does this leave the NASL if USL Pro teams are partnering with MLS? Sounds like you have a better shot at MLS on a USL Pro team. What's the NASL doing?
