Little known fact soccer is huge in the Trump suburbs of the ATL area. I have no idea why folks pigeon hole soccer fans politically. My daughters play soccer so did my cousin and nephews and none of my family would vote for a democrat with a gun to our heads ..(which might happen if Hitlerly won) I kid I kid....sorta.

RE: 5,000 Seat Soccer Stadium Coming to Statesboro/GS
Figured I'd dig up a month old thread for this. Birmingham was just awarded a USL team to begin play in 2019, preceded by a PDL team in 2018. No mention of ewhere the team would play, not sure if the city would want them in whatever they finally decide to do with UAB football. Right now UAB plays at Legion Field, and it has hosted a number of international soccer matches, but 60k seats will be a bit much for USL....

A current team in town that plays in the NPSL(fourth tier) plays games at Samford's soccer field.

Be interesting to see what they build for this new team, I like what Statesboro has planned.

On a personal note, it sucks that I no longer live in Mobile and get to experience everything happening there, and I live nearly an hour outside Birmingham, so I don't get the real experience of that either. I love my small town life, but miss the city amenities.

Just heard today they're building a new soccer facility at the Circuit of the Americas outside Austin for a new USL team out there.

I'd rather watch paint dry than watch a soccer match. Having said that when it comes to Sun Belt soccer...Go Eagles!

The Cajun Track/Soccer complex that was recently redone has a seating capacity of 5000.

Pro soccer is very fluid right now. AFC Mobile as been approached about possibly joining USL D3 beginning play in 2019. AFC Mobile is currently is the GCPL which is tier 5, the USL D3 would be tier 4, I think. AFC Mobile currently plays in a 5,000 seat stadium, but it is field turf, and I'd rather see soccer played on actual grass.

AFC Mobile had games this past season with over 1,000 people, and set league records all season long for the GCPL.

Where i live now (Raleigh) we have NCFC, maybe a 8k seater? In the NASL (tier 2), one of the more likely candidates for next MLS expansion, are the Mobile team and others like it hoping to eventually see a relegation system? Or are they comfortable with rising on occasional expansions in the normal us franchise system?

I personally would like to see relegation, evenn if just in the USL system. MLS will never go for it, but no reason why it can't happen within the USL, tier 2-4.
