New pro soccer team coming to Windsor

WINDSOR — Starting in 2022 the Future Legends Sports Complex in Windsor will be home to the Northern Colorado FC, a new professional soccer team that will play in the United Soccer League’s League One.

The club is the second professional team intent on playing home games at the complex, which is being built on a 118-acre site at 801 Diamond Valley Drive. Late last year, the Orem Owlz announced they would move from Utah to Windsor as part of an eight-team Pioneer League that is tentatively scheduled to begin play on Memorial Day in 2021.

Northern Colorado is set for an inaugural season tentatively running from March through October 2022, according to a news release from the Future Legends Sports Complex development and ownership group.

The USL’s League One is the third tier of the U.S. soccer pyramid, below the USL Championship and the top-tier Major League Soccer.

The new team is majority owned by Future Legends CEO Jeff Katofsky and his family.

“Northern Colorado is the heartbeat of sports and outdoor recreation. We could not have chosen a better place to bring professional soccer and baseball, and could not be more proud and humbled to be welcomed into this community,” Katofsky said in a prepared statement. “USL’s League One provides professional soccer that is competitive and entertaining, and we’re thrilled to join a group of phenomenal teams.”

Northern Colorado FC will release its full name and logo later this year. The team plans to solicit input from fans on its branding. 

“It’s an exciting day for League One,” said USL Senior Vice President Steven Short. “Under the leadership of the Katofsky family and the talented staff at the Future Legends Sports Complex, Northern Colorado FC will be a strong addition to the League One family, and we look forward to seeing all that they can accomplish in our growing league.”
