On Wednesday, our indomitable leaders, led by Republic FC CEO Kevin Nagle and Mayor Steinberg, made their final presentation to MLS, demonstrating to Commissioner Garber and the league’s Expansion Committee why Sacramento deserves to be awarded MLS rights.
They were greeted outside of MLS Headquarters by a crowd of cheering fans who made the 2,819 mile trip to New York to show that Sacramento is ready to #BringItHome.
Below, read coverage from local and national media outlets, as well as reaction from Wednesday.

Growing up in a small Central Valley town in California was rarely considered “cool”. We were often overlooked as players, clubs and communities, and now we have an opportunity to change that. Soccer isn’t just about the large tv markets and cities. It's about creativity and community and Sacramento and the Central Valley are authentic to that. Thank you to all of you who are supporting it. Let's go @sacrepublicfc #bringithome
