Coming to Greenville: Triumph
Today’s post in my “Coming to Greenville” series features Greenville’s latest professional sporting team. Curious? Find out more!
Greenville Triumph Soccer Club
It was announced earlier this year in March that Greenville, SC, will soon be home to professional soccer team!
United Soccer League CEO Alec Papdakis shared that he believes the Greenville group, “will develop a successful and passionate team for our growing Southeast contingent as we aim to develop regional rivalries across the United States.”
The United Soccer League Division III franchise officially got its name in August: Greenville Triumph Soccer Club. The team’s colors are fresh green and navy blue, and its crest incorporates the region’s proximity to the Blue Ridge Mountains and rivers.
Doug Erwin, vice chairman and chief brand officer of the team, explains that the “Triumph” name speaks to Greenville’s triumphs to create one of the most envied communities in the country.
“Triumph means you’ve won. You’ve overcome obstacles, opposition and competition to achieve a goal,” he said. “The ability to pick yourself up when you’re knocked down is fundamental in sports and life – every bit as inspiring as it is in the case of communities and neighborhoods,” Erwin says.
Greenville Triumph Soccer Club will begin playing in March 2019 in the inaugural season of the United Soccer League (USL) D3. For additional information, merchandise orders and season ticket priority deposits, visit GreenvilleTriumph.com. Fans can also follow the team on Twitter and Instagram at @GVLTriumph and on Facebook at Greenville Triumph SC.
