The long nightmare is over — Sacramento Republic’s offseason is officially in the books, as the team began preseason camp Monday morning.
With this, we’ll see more news, info, and yes, games. Buckle up, the first step of the 2020 season is right here.

I still cant believe this. My idol growing up. No one will ever have the heart this man had on a court. The will to win every game he played. RIP KB pic.twitter.com/uvKBHzJhYs— Rodrigo Lopez (@Lopez_Roro) January 26, 2020
- Signings around USL Championship: Foster Langsdorf has moved from T2 to Reno 1868, so look for him attempting that goofy goal celebration, while Zachary Herivaux returns to San Antonio FC, this time on a permanent deal. And all-time leading division scorer Dane Kelly remains in the Eastern Conference for 2020, as he’s joined the Charlotte Independence.
- New USL Show: This is a few days old, but if you’re jonesing for a bit of an overall wrap on what’s going down, check out the latest USL Show.
