“THERE’S NO BETTER SPORT IN THE WORLD TO UNITE A COMMUNITY AND IGNITE PASSION THAN SOCCER, AND RHODE ISLAND IS ONE OF THE GREATEST MARKETS ON THE PLANET WITHOUT A PROFESSIONAL TEAM. OPPORTUNITIES DON’T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THAT, AND I’M BLESSED TO BE INVOLVED WITH SOME AMAZING SOCCER TEAMS AROUND THE WORLD, BUT THERE IS NO OPPORTUNITY THAT I’M MORE COMMITTED TO THAN BRINGING MEN’S PROFESSIONAL SOCCER TO RHODE ISLAND.”Brett M. Johnson, Chairman
RHODE ISLAND FC
We are Rhode Island Football Club – a group committed to bringing men’s professional soccer to Rhode Island as part of the USL Championship. We aim to be a club that represents all Rhode Island, and provides community and entertainment through the shared enjoyment of professional sports. We are invested in our community as we build our home stadium at Tidewater Landing in Pawtucket, and believe that our region is primed and ready to welcome a professional club to Rhode Island.
Led under the leadership of Co-founders Chairman Brett Johnson and former MLS player and Rhode Island native Michael Parkhurst, the club’s executive team is leading the development and investment to create one of the best clubs and stadiums in North American soccer; creating a place and experience for lifelong memories for Rhode Islanders.
