“This is the moment we’ve all been waiting for. After four years of demonstrating unparalleled passion, tenacity and hard work, Sacramento is ready to secure our destiny as a Major League Soccer city. Thanks to a truly community-wide effort, Republic FC has proven our market strength, started construction on a state-of-the-art downtown stadium, and assembled a committed ownership group with deep local roots and sports expertise. We are thrilled and honored to be named a MLS expansion finalist and look forward to showcasing our bid and community next week in New York. It’s time for Sacramento to shine. It’s time to bring it home.”

Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg says:
