STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

A new team will soon call Statesboro home.

The Premier Development League established a soccer team to play in Statesboro, starting next spring.

The franchise owners announced today the team will play at Georgia Southern's soccer stadium but will also travel across the country to play games. They point to the region's interest in soccer and their loyalty to support all local sports teams.

Darin Van Tassell, team co-owner, said, “Las Vegas and Portland, Seattle, and Houston, now you'll see Statesboro in that kind of mix.”

There is an online contest to name the team.
