Republic FC Acquired In Effort To Bring Major League Team To Sacramento

In a big announcement Monday morning,  Sac Soccer & Entertainment stated the they will formally acquire the Republic soccer team, however no financial terms have been released yet.

According to the Sacramento Business Journal, this means that if Sacramento does receive a Major League Soccer franchise, it would bear the Republic’s name, crest and colors.

The merger comes a few months after Sac Soccer & Entertainment announced a bid for an MLS expansion franchise without consulting with the Republic.

The Business Journal also states that MLS will announce two new expansion teams later this year and that ten cities have submitted bids.
