Are USL’s Wilmington Hammerheads moving to Baltimore?

 

From Goff over at WaPo:

 

United Soccer League, an ambitious third-tier circuit that is thriving in several medium and large markets, is eager to place a team in Baltimore for the 2018 season, multiple sources told the Insider.

 

The most promising scenario has the Wilmington Hammerheads moving from the North Carolina coastal town to Charm City, taking a year off for marketing and logistical purposes and beginning play under a new name in 2018 at Towson University, which is located 10 miles north of downtown Baltimore.

 

The league has also fielded inquiries from separate potential investors with Baltimore ties, making the city a candidate for expansion as well as relocation, one source said.

 

Among the possible names being floated for a new team is FC Baltimore and Baltimore FC. Aside from Towson, the University of Maryland Baltimore County emerged as a possible home venue, but the sides couldn’t work out a plan for major renovation of the small grass facility in Catonsville.

 

For player development purposes, all 20 MLS teams have a USL affiliate. D.C. United, for instance, is aligned with the Richmond Kickers and the Hammerheads serve New York City FC. It’s unclear what NYCFC would do while a Baltimore team is dormant in 2017.

"FC Baltimore [or] Baltimore FC"

 

I want to mock the creativity there, but honestly it's better than "Baltimore CrabClawz" or "Real Baltimore United Spurs" or other goofy things we'd likely see.

 

Should be "SC", though.

The New York Cosmos have furloughed their employees and terminated all player contracts.

 

But other than that, everything's cool.

WaPoD.C. United planning to launch USL team in 2018

 

D.C. United has submitted an application to the United Soccer League to own and operate a secondary squad in the Washington area starting in 2018, the Insider has learned.

 

If approved, United would join a growing number of MLS organizations with direct involvement in developing young players in a competitive league and running a second pro team. This year, 11 of 20 MLS clubs fielded teams in the USL, a 30-member circuit two rungs below MLS.

 

United has begun a preliminary search for a playing venue, with Maryland SoccerPlex in Boyds and the University of Maryland’s Ludwig Field under consideration.

Not a repeat headline from every other decision US Soccer has made since, like, 1994.

Congratulations xenophobes, you're a bunch of morons.



Says Timothy Burke on Twitter? Who also cited an article that mentions nothing about the guy, or his legality?

Far as I can tell he hasn't played on a team since 2015.

Touché. Upon some actual digging turns out the dude retired after this past season and has moved into coaching. Whether that's here in the States or not, who knows?

Pitchforks down folks, nothing to see here.
