Salt City SC
Salt City SC (formerly Ogden City S.C.) is the first pre-professional league franchise to be owned and operated by a youth soccer state association. The team has participated in USL League Two (Formally PDL) since the Summer of 2018. The team consists of athletes from all over the country looking to take the next step in their development as they continue their soccer careers. The team plays its home games at America First Field & the Zions Bank Real Academy.
USL League Two is the leader in pre-professional soccer in North America. The League holds a vital role as it continues to provide the elite platform for those pursuing professional careers domestically and internationally. Throughout the United States and Canada, League Two franchises continue to provide top pre-professional players the opportunity to train and compete at the highest level while maintaining their collegiate eligibility. With ownership of teams coming from the likes of MLS and USL franchises as well as leading business and sports individuals, League Two serves as the leading development platform for the game both on and off the field.
League Two is more than the leading national pre-professional league. League Two is the defined and proven pathway for players to progress to the ranks of professional soccer, while its clubs become fixtures in the communities where they operate.
