In a clear sign that Rhode Island FC is a team for all Rhode Island, the club announced today that it has secured season ticket deposits from fans in all 39 cities and towns. The club previously announced it had sold 2,500 season ticket deposits in the first week of sales, breaking all known USL Championship records. Rhode Island will play its inaugural season in 2024.
“We continue to be blown away by the support we’ve received from every corner of the state, and we intend to live up to our club name and be a team for all Rhode Island. Just a month after unveiling our club name and team crest, we have secured season ticket deposits from fans in every one of the state’s 39 cities and towns,” said Rhode Island FC co-founder and chairman Brett Johnson.
Rhode Island FC visited all 39 cities and towns on the day it unveiled its name and crest. The statewide tour helped introduce the team to fans across the state and built enthusiasm in local communities for the 2024 USL Championship season.
“We saw throughout the World Cup that Rhode Island is one the best soccer communities in the United States, and that community is showing up again to support their local professional club. Rhode Island FC is indeed a team for every Rhode Islander and we look forward to welcoming fans from all 39 cities and towns to Pawtucket when we take the pitch in 2024,” said Rhode Island FC president Brett Luy.
Earlier this month, the club announced it will open its club headquarters in downtown Pawtucket and begin hiring front office staff early next year. The club intends to hire more than 30 full time employees in its front office before the end of 2023.
