What is the USL League Two?

Peoria City was announced as a USL League Two expansion franchise in January 2020, just months before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The team is set to debut in May 2022 as a member of the USL League Two, a North American pre-professional league that provides a platform for players pursuing professional soccer careers.

The players come mostly from colleges, maintaining their eligibility while playing in the league. Ownership of teams comes from organizations within the MLS and USL, as well as leading business and sports individuals.
