A new “modular and temporary” soccer stadium planned for central Tampa:

VSI intends to build a modular stadium (circa 6-8,000 seats) in central Tampa for the purpose of playing all VSI Tampa Bay Flames USL Pro League home matches, commencing 2013 season. The facility will remain in situ until the completion of the Flames main stadium (28,888 seats), again in central Tampa and which is scheduled for early 2016.

The Flames are currently in detailed discussion with NUSSLI a leading global operating supplier in the field of temporary and modular constructions for the purpose of designing and building its modular stadium.

Sacramento Republic player channels Charlie Adam with 50+ yard goal

Add this strike to the list of impressive goals of 2015.

Sacramento Republic’s Rodrigo López showed off some crafty goal scoring in his team’s game against Vancouver Whitecaps 2.

That almost gives Stoke’s Charlie Adam a run for his money.

Sacramento, which play in the American lower division USL, were champions of the league in 2014 and López was the playoff MVP.

Sacramento are angling to be one of the additions to MLS in the coming years, but if López keeps hitting balls like that he maybe be jumping back up to the league sooner than later. (He had a stint with the Portland Timbers in 2011 and Chivas USA from 2005-07)
