USL-Pro rebrands, drops the Pro

USL-Pro has undergone a host of changes in recent years.

The third tier of the American soccer pyramid has seen one team (Orlando City) jump its way all the way up to Major League Soccer and another (Sacramento Republic) make a strong push for a similar move. The league has become a hosting ground for MLS-affiliated secondary clubs — including one of our own, Sounders 2, which is set to begin its inaugural season in March.

S2 will do so in the newly rebranded, newly renamed USL — without the Pro.

The league has also debuted snazzy new, team-specific logos, similar to what MLS did last fall:

S2 opens its season against defending champion Sacramento on March 21 at Starfire Sports Complex.
