The process of naming our club started with the community. We spent months with people from across the region, listening to stories about who we are, why we choose to reside here, and, most importantly, why we love Tampa Bay.
Listening to our community
We always knew this was bigger than soccer – building a community and a culture where every person joining us feels united under one club banner. And to make sure we knew exactly what it would look like, we traveled around Tampa Bay to hear from residents and community leaders.
The story behind our name
Our community huddles garnered incredible insight about what matters most to soccer fans in this wonderful community.
We thank the thousands of you who spent time with us in person, virtually or filled out our surveys. Your robust feedback enabled us to confidently adopt a name and brand that will unite us all under one club banner.
