They will be playing in USL D3 that starts play in 2019. They will essentially be the second level of the USL. So in baseball terms they will be AA ball, with USL being AAA to the MLS.

It'll be a dark day in Statesboro when a Georgia Southern football teams only had 5,000 people in attendance

Soccer in Trump country. That would be like putting a NASCAR track on Bankhead. Good luck with that

The black and white folks don't care quite as much about soccer, but the brown folks in Trump country sure do.

Soccer is a niche sport and Tormenta does a pretty good job of filling that niche for the Savannah/South Georgia area. You'd be surprised at how big soccer has gotten in all corners of the US. Atlanta United is in Trump country yet has the top attendance in the MLS in its first season.

Ok, Torments will be USL 3, tied to the Charleston Battery USL Pro, which is tied to Atl Utd in MLS. The USL has multiple levels, pro level is the top.

This is a big move for this team, GS soccer, and the city. Hoping it is successful.

"Soccer is a niche sport" haha only in America. I'm still unsure what's going to happen when people get fed up with CTE.

Still in the planning stage but the renderings do little to present the entire complex. The field house will be shared with one side dedicated to GS the other Tormenta. The bottom of the home side will be somewhat similar in design to a strip mall with retail space for restaurants and gift ships or whatever with road frontage. parking will be closer to the bypass so the stadium will literally butt up against the southern campus edge with the new south campus adjacent with connecting roads yet to be constructed.

Hope this gets past the planning stages for you guys. Shouldn't be that expensive to build either.
