WINDSOR, Colo. – Future Legends Complex will welcome Northern Colorado Football Club (NoCo FC) of the United Soccer League’s (USL) League One.
The club is majority-owned by the Katofsky family and Future Legends ownership group, who are the lead developers and co-founders of Future Legends Complex. With its inaugural season set for 2022, Northern Colorado FC will play in a state-of-the-art multi-purpose professional sports stadium at Future Legends Complex, a new 118-acre sports and entertainment facility set to open that same year.
Northern Colorado FC will join USL League One and play against teams across the country, with their first season tentatively running from March through October 2022.
“Northern Colorado is the heartbeat of sports and outdoor recreation. We could not have chosen a better place to bring professional soccer and baseball, and could not be more proud and humbled to be welcomed into this community,” Northern Colorado FC owner and Future Legends CEO Jeff Katofsky said. “USL’s League One provides professional soccer that is competitive and entertaining, and we’re thrilled to join a group of phenomenal teams.”
A full team brand, name, and logo will be developed and announced in the coming months, with the input of local soccer fans and community members.
“It’s an exciting day for League One,” said USL Senior vice president Steven Short. “Under the leadership of the Katofsky family and the talented staff at the Future Legends Sports Complex, Northern Colorado FC will be a strong addition to the League One family and we look forward to seeing all that they can accomplish in our growing league.”
Future Legends Complex will be a sports, entertainment, and retail destination in northern Colorado, with more than 20 outdoor fields and diamonds, a four-acre bubble dome with turf and hardcourt inside, dorm-style lodging for tournament participants, hospitality options, restaurants, and other amenities on-site.
