Rowdies Begin Road to the USL Cup

This season, the Tampa Bay Rowdies made the transition from the NASL to the USL, with a potential jump to Major League Soccer in the franchise’s future. The switch has already proved successful for the team as the boys in green and gold clinched not only a playoff berth, but also home-field advantage in the first round.

You got us to the playoffs, now we need you to cheer us on to the Cup. This is our year! We’re going to bring home the championship and we need our fans with us all the way.

Rowdies owner Bill Edwards

Cheer on the Rowdies and help fill Al Lang

The quarter final match takes place on Saturday, October 21 at Al Lang Stadium in St. Pete. Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased online or by calling 727.222.2000. 

The Rowdies are no strangers to championship glory — they took home the NASL Cup back in 2012. They’re primed to make a run for the USL cup. Hoisting up the cup at the end of the year could help to open some eyes in the MLS as they consider multiple pitches for expansion teams.

In celebration of the team’s success, the Rowdies debuted a new pop up team store at the Sundial in downtown St. Pete. It’s the new hotspot to gear up for the unpredictable journey to the USL Cup.
