Ferrell drew laughter from the crowd of supporters, local politicians, media and MLS Commissioner Don Garber and US Soccer President Sunil Gulati, jokingly saying “we will go undefeated in our inaugural season. I don’t know how hard that is to do, but we have a pretty good chance. And if not, you can come up and tackle me in the parking lot, OK?”
The club, which was announced in 2014, is set to join MLS action in 2018.
Check out the awesome renderings below.
We cannot wait to see some MLS action going on in this beautiful stadium. What star signings will the club make before 2018?
