NASL announces expansion franchise in San Diego

NASL announces expansion franchise in San Diego

"We can't wait to get started and win some games", Hazard said.

The pair are joined by former Chelsea striker Demba Ba, now with Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua, and ex-Lille forward Moussa Sow, now with Al-Ahli of Dubai.

The as yet unnamed club will make its league debut in the spring of 2018.

"All my life as a football player, I lived with competition and competition is going to be good for us and for San Diego", he said. Ba has played with Hazard at Chelsea, Cabaye at Newcastle, and Sow with the Senegal national team.

Bob Watkins, the NASL team's president, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that his group was "soccer specific" in contrast, and is purposely avoiding a downtown venue in favor of a 10,000-seat, privately financed stadium that could open as early as next August.

'Success is our goal - with the club, with the community, with everything that we do, ' Ba said.

Senegalese striker Demba Ba, who is now on loan at Beşiktaş, Chelsea star Eden Hazard, Crystal Palace's Yohan Cabaye and Fenerbahçe star Moussa Sow are investing in San Diego's first professional soccer team. It is a notch below Major League Soccer, which is also considering San Diego for an expansion franchise. 'One of our goals is to sign players who have a strong passion for the game, who are competitive and love to win. "It is going to be up to us to be the best". In the meantime, the club will play at University of San Diego's Torero Stadium.

AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini is the co-owner of NASL side Miami FC, who are coached by Alessandro Nesta.

The club's name, logo and strip are now undecided, but there are fixed plans in place to build a 10,000-seater stadium inside a complex alongside the franchise's training centre.
