Amarillo could soon become home to a professional soccer team from the United Soccer League, according to Soccer Stadium Digest.

As many High Plains residents are aware, Amarillo is in the process of building a new baseball stadium downtown, which will play host to the relocating Double-A San Antonio Missions. But what they may not know is that the stadium is also being designed to accommodate a United Soccer League team.

The United Soccer League is a professional men's soccer league in the United States and Canada. It currently contains teams such as the Colorado Springs Switchbacks, San Antonio FC, the Ottawa Fury and the Tulsa Roughnecks.

The group that owns Amarillo’s new Double-A team already owns a number of minor league soccer teams in addition to multiple minor league baseball teams.
