You, the fans, have spoken, and we now have a list of final name possibilities for Tulsa’s newest, outdoor professional soccer team! In conjunction with Tulsa World Media Company, fans were able to participate in a Name Your Team Contest and suggest official names for the new USL PRO soccer franchise that will begin play at ONEOK Field in the spring of 2015.
From all the submissions, four names have been chosen from the most popular suggestions. Those four are:
Oil City FC
A second phase of the contest will now take place, with fans having the chance to vote for their favorite name. After voting concludes, the official name of Tulsa’s newest soccer team will be revealed.
Following completion of the second round of the contest, one fan who submitted the winning name will be chosen as a Grand Prize Winner. The winner will receive four season tickets to the team’s inaugural season, a parking pass, an official personalized team jersey and other prizes.
USL PRO is the strongest and most experienced North American men’s professional soccer league below and in support of Major League Soccer, both on and off the field. Entering the 2014 season, USL PRO will have 14 teams with Tulsa and Colorado Springs already announced as new teams for 2015. Other cities in the league include Oklahoma City, Los Angeles, Charlotte, Phoenix and Pittsburgh.
