In 2018, Baltimore sports fans may be able to watch professional soccer matches very close to home.
According to the Washington Post, the United Soccer League team that’s currently playing in North Carolina as the Wilmington Hammerheads is seriously pondering a move to Baltimore. They would likely adopt a new name (May we offer a suggestion: the Baltimore Crab Cakes?) and play at Towson University’s Unitas Stadium.
(Actually, the WaPo reports that the team would most likely be named Baltimore FC. For “Baltimore Football Club.” Snore.)
If it happens, the Baltimore TBAs will join the city’s professional indoor soccer league, the Baltimore Blast, making this a very football-friendly town.
