I’ll have plenty of opportunity to gush about the actual game tomorrow when I’m more collected, but here’s what Twitter thought of Louisville City FC’s first ever game, goals, and win yesterday at Louisville Slugger Field. From the Pregame Pint (skip ahead about 10 minutes) to the post-game parties, it was a hell of a day and we’re so excited for what’s to come: Read more »

Pretty big day down at Sixth Street: today, Louisville City FC finally revealed its home and away kits for their inaugural season, and announced three(!!!) new player signings.

Concurrent with the kit reveal was the identification of three new sponsors: Humana, Your Community Bank, and El Jimador tequila. Humana is obviously a huge get as a team sponsor. We don’t have any idea what that might mean in terms of dollars, but having a Fortune 100 company with its name on your chest is a pretty big deal. Your Community Bank is a nice touch on the back, even if they are from Indiana, and El Jimador is a Brown-Forman brand that also graces MLS touchline screens everywhere. All in all, a nice haul for a third tier expansion franchise, no?

Without much fanfare or Freddy Adu, the USL released its Media Guide earlier this week. Inside, you’ll find snippets about all 24 teams, though information about each team varies. Notably not included are team rosters, which makes some sense as those are probably still being finalized as we speak. Some other interesting tidbits I pulled out of the media guide:

Our more or less weekly roundup of USL news. Best enjoyed with coffee or the beer your friends left in your fridge last weekend.

The first weekend of USL games is in the books for 2015, everyone! There were only three games, but they featured real teams with uniforms and everything! Here’s more:

  • Seattle Sounders FC 2 4:2 Sacramento Republic FC. And it wasn’t really that close. Tough way to start for the defending USL champs, and maybe a shot fired across the rest of the Western Conference that SSFC2 is totes legit.
  • Charleston Battery 3:2 Toronto FC II. Tworonto will probably feel a little hard done by this result, as they were up 0-2 within fifteen minutes of kickoff, but credit to the Battery for somehow battling back and getting to the top of the Eastern Conference table to start the season. Charleston’s Taylor Mueller, who has a great first name, scored the game winner in stoppage time.
  • L.A. Galaxy II 0:0 Real Monarchs SLC. Yawn, amirite? One of the kind of unfair things about these “2” teams is that first team guys go on rehab assignments there, so A.J. De La Garza featured in the back on this one. LAGII are under the impression they dominated the game but couldn’t finish chances, but that’s what they all say.

Bonus: Old man fights are hilarious.

Lots of Louisville City FC-related news happened in the last week or so. I obviously didn’t write about any of it. Here’s my attempt to placate your thirst for LCFC news in blurb form:

  • University of Kentucky 0:0 Louisville City FC. No one scored, but all reports indicated that LCFC dominated the ball for most of the game.
  • Louisville City FC 5:0 Lindsey Wilson College. A pro team played an NAIA team and the scoreline pretty much reflects that. Sorry, LWC.
  • Louisville City announced they’re going to have an announcement to show us the team kit just two days from their first game. I’m glad we finally get a kit, but I kind of wish there was more opportunity to buy it before the first game. Oh well, expect it to be cool!
  • Brickyard Battalion 3:1 Louisville Coopers. Prior to the friendly against Indy Eleven, the Coopers played a friendly against their supporters, the Brickyard Battalion. Reports from the game sound like we actually played pretty well but BYB had a team roster of about 50 and had a penchant for playing 12 men at a time. WE’LL GET YOU ON THE RETURN LEG, HOOSIERS.
  • Indy Eleven 1:2 Louisville City FC. City wrapped up its preseason unbeaten with an away friendly win against NASL’s Indy Eleven.
