NASL announces expansion franchise in San Diego

NASL announces expansion franchise in San Diego”

Ba has played with Hazard at Chelsea, Cabaye at Newcastle, and Sow with the Senegal national team.

Ba, who is now on loan at Turkish side Besiktas from Chinese Super League outfit Shanghai Shenhua, said: "If you look at San Diego there are not many pro teams, and there are no pro teams in football". He said San Diego's passion for soccer is one of the key reasons behind the investment.

Hazard, now a star for Chelsea, started his career with Lille alongside Cabaye, while Sow also joined the French club for two seasons.

It seems that Hazard has emulated former Blues striker Didier Drogba's decision to become a part owner of an American club, after the Ivorian became the game's first player-owner when he joined Phoenix Rising, who inhabit the rival second tier United Soccer League.

"San Diego is a lovely place and the love and passion the people have for soccer made this an easy choice for us", said Hazard.

"Success is our goal - with the club, with the community, with everything that we do", Ba said. "One of our goals is to sign players who have a strong passion for the game, who are competitive and love to win".

'I look forward to competing against our fellow California clubs and the rest of the NASL, as well as MLS clubs in the U.S. Open Cup. "We are not in the real estate development business and want to use soccer as a ploy to get a real estate project going", Watkins said.

The club will start play at the University of San Diego's Torero Stadium, which previously hosted a women's professional team.

The quartet are set to follow in the footsteps of former AC Milan and Italy defender Paolo Maldini, who is the co-owner of NASL side Miami FC.

The club's name, logo and strip are now undecided, but there are fixed plans in place to build a 10,000-seater stadium inside a complex alongside the franchise's training centre.
