JAXUSL is a Jacksonville-based group of investors and executives who have acquired the rights to a USL expansion franchise with the intent of beginning play in 2025. The new club will be the first in Northeast Florida to feature both men’s and women’s professional soccer.
The USL Championship currently features 27 professional, community-driven clubs across the United States with plans to add expansion teams in Iowa, Rhode Island, Louisiana and more. The USL Super League will bring professional women’s soccer to new markets and create opportunities for women on and off the field.
JAXUSL’s lead investor is Ricky Caplin, one of Northeast Florida’s leading entrepreneurs and principal of the Caplin Ventures. Florida sports legend Tim Tebow is a supporting owner of the club, bringing experience as a professional athlete, investor and philanthropist. Joining Caplin and Tebow in JAXUSL are experienced professional soccer executive Steve Livingstone and local community innovator Tony Allegretti. As founders and managing partners, Livingstone and Allegretti will oversee the day-to-day operations of JAXUSL in establishing and growing the USL expansion club.
The USL Championship team intends to kick off in 2025, contingent on securing a home venue on the First Coast for the club. JAXUSL is actively engaged with local stakeholders and has identified multiple potential locations for the development of a 15,000-capacity stadium and a world-class training facility. Details about the stadium and training facility will be announced in the coming months.
JAXUSL offers a complete portfolio of valuable partnership opportunities around the foundation of the clubs and facilities, that can meet a variety of partner goals including naming rights, brand association, fan and youth engagement and event activation.
JAXUSL’s mission is to find creative solutions and activations to not only meet our partner needs, but to exceed our partner’s expectations and form long-lasting associations.
