USL will move into Albuquerque in 2019

New Mexico becomes the fifth new club set to play in the USL in 2019 as the league continues its expansion in the South and Southwest.

The ownership group is led by former Wall Street executive Peter Trevisani.

Like many of the recent USL additions, the new team will play in a minor-league baseball stadium. Isotopes Park is the home of the Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes of the Pacific Coast League. Plans for a downtown soccer stadium are in the exploratory stage.

USL CEO Alec Papadakis:
“We are thrilled to welcome New Mexico to the USL family and strengthen the sport of soccer in the Southwest. The exceptional members of USL New Mexico’s ownership group, led by Peter Trevisani, care deeply for soccer and New Mexico, and they are focused on contributing to its economy and youth in a positive way. I am confident this group, and fans across the state, will propel the USL’s latest club toward remarkable achievements on and off the field in the coming years.”
