Wednesday May 10th, 2017

The NASL will announce a new team for 2018 in Orange County, California, has learned.

The team’s majority owner will be entrepreneur Pete Capriotti, and the team will play at Titan Stadium at Cal State-Fullerton. What's more, while a contract has yet to be signed, there is a significant possibility that the new NASL team will be coached by former U.S. great Eric Wynalda, who has been in detailed talks with the ownership group.

Orange County will be the second new NASL team on the West Coast after the start this year of the San Francisco Deltas.
