Officials and staff from across the United Soccer League ecosystem convened this week in Louisville, Ky. for the 2022 USL Mid-Year Meetings, bringing together league and club executives for a collection of seminars, social events and local activations in addition to Board of Governors and Executive Committee meetings across the USL Championship, Super League, League One, W League, and League Two.
As part of the three-day event – centerpieced by the USL Summer Showcase on Wednesday night between host Louisville City FC and Phoenix Rising FC at Lynn Family Stadium (7 p.m. ET | ESPN2 | Preview) – the USL and LouCity hosted a youth soccer clinic at the Lynn Family Futsal field led by Championship legend George Davis IV, and welcomed fans to The Kickoff at Noble Funk Brewing that featured a live edition of SiriusXM FC’s USL All Access hosted by Mike Watts and Devon Kerr.
Here's a look at some of the sights and sounds from the week’s events.
Great to be in Louisville for the @USL_HQ Mid-year League meetings. Fun outing to @ChurchillDowns last night with all of the owners and operators of soccer clubs from around the country. Thanks to @loucityfc for hosting! #SummerShowcase pic.twitter.com/bs1H6XkK4N— kevin willer (@kwiller) July 20, 2022
"It is a good opportunity to showcase what we're doing here. In my opinion this is the bar in the USL Championship." @loucityfc head coach Danny Cruz on the inaugural USL Summer Showcase, which has brought league executives to Louisville for mid-year meetings. pic.twitter.com/jYrr1LOtYr— Paul Miles (@PaulMiles840) July 20, 2022
