Help Name Milwaukee’s New Soccer Team
We couldn't agree more.

One fan was nervous about the name being bad. The official Milwaukee pro soccer Twitter account agreed and put the link to submit a name idea for the team. It is a very basic form but does ask why you chose the name. The club doesn’t want random names but a name that reflects the city of Milwaukee. Teams often take on the identity of the city so getting the name right is key. Nothing is worse than a team name that stinks.
New Complex Is For More Than Just Soccer
The stadium for the new team looks amazing. The knock on many new stadiums is that they are large buildings that have limited use. This stadium will be a part of a larger complex that also houses restaurants and a performance venue. Being right off of Marquette University’s campus, their soccer and lacrosse teams will also use the 8,000 seat stadium to play their games. Overall the city of Milwaukee is getting so much more than a soccer team.
It is really cool to have an opportunity to name the team. Got an idea? Help name Milwaukee’s new soccer team by submitting an idea. As of now, there is no timetable for submissions as there is still plenty of time before 2025. However, clubs like to gain a following before the inaugural seasons kicks off. A key part of this is having a team identity. Stay tuned for more news on Milwaukee’s soccer team!
