Oakland Roots Sports Club joins USL Championship

We're stoked that Oakland Roots Sports Club announced yesterday that they will be joining the USL Championship for the 2021 season. The USL is the largest and fastest growing professional soccer organization in North America with teams throughout the United States and Canada. Roots will represent The Town across the country and around the world with matches on ESPN+, ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes.

“We are excited to join the USL Championship in 2021,” said club Chair Steven Aldrich. “Playing in the Championship is a great opportunity for Oakland Roots to continue our journey of using soccer as a force for social good. We can’t wait to showcase the passion, pride, and commitment of our players, fans, and The Town to an even wider audience next year.”
