INDOMITABLE CITY. INDOMITABLE CLUB.
Sacramento Republic FC is built for Sacramento and built for MLS. We exist to make the Sacramento region into the most inspiring, energetic and rewarding place to live, work and play. We celebrate, and elevate, the people, projects and places that provide Sacramento its soul and swagger.
Our motto is urbs indomita – Indomitable City. Indomitable Club. The club’s commitment to position Sacramento as an “indomitable city” is evident through its community investments and efforts to procure an MLS franchise and soccer-specific stadium in The Railyards.
Founded in 2012, Republic FC played its inaugural season in 2014 and went on to win the 2014 USL Championship. Since our first match, the club has broken nearly every USL record including attendance and corporate partnership sales.
As we look to join MLS, there are several key advantages that speak to the strength and viability of our market:
