SALT LAKE CITY — Utah’s newest professional soccer team, Real Salt Lake’s National Women’s Soccer League, has a new name: Utah Royals FC.
The name, which was announced early Friday morning by RSL, is the final piece to the puzzle for the new women’s team, who earlier in the week named their head coach Laura Harvey. The name and its logo hints to several aspects of the RSL identity.
The logo, which continues with the club’s Claret Red, Cobalt Blue and Victory Gold colors, features the lioness with a crown and Utah’s Delicate Arch.
The club said its inaugural home and away NIKE jerseys will be released in the coming weeks, prior to the Jan. 18 NWSL college draft. The names of front office personnel will also be released at this time. T-shirts with the new logo will be available at both RSL team stores Saturday, Dec. 2 at 10 a.m.
The Utah Royals FC will open up its season on Saturday, April 14 at Rio Tinto Stadium in the NWSL’s sixth season. The NWSL is a ten-team women’s professional soccer league, including teams Boston Breakers, Chicago Red Stars, Houston Dash, North Carolina Courage, Orlando Pride, Portland Thorns FC, Seattle Reign FC, Sky Blue FC and the Washington Spirit.
Information about season tickets and individual game tickets can be found on the team’s website.
