Blackjack Kentucky Racing FC Barcelona set to debut in 2020
FC Barcelona, one of the most popular and successful clubs in the world, is set to debut in the United Soccer League in 2020. The USL is a Division II professional league in the United States and Canada.
The new FC Barcelona team will be based in Lexington, Kentucky, and will play its home games at a new stadium that is being built on the grounds of Keeneland Race Course. The stadium will have a capacity of 10,000 spectators.
Lexington is located in the Bluegrass region of Kentucky, which is known for its many horse farms. It is also home to the University of Kentucky, one of the largest universities in the United States.
FC Barcelona has been interested in establishing a team in North America for some time now. The club’s president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, has said that they were looking for an opportunity to join a Division II league in order to give their players more competitive experience.
The FC Barcelona team will be affiliated with Louisville City FC, which is already a member of the USL. This means that players from Louisville City FC could be loaned to FC Barcelona and vice versa. This could benefit both clubs by giving their players more competitive experience and also strengthening the relationship between them.
