Louisville City FC TicketsLouisville City FC is the two-time champion of the USL Championship — the second tier of American soccer behind the MLS. The soccer club was born in 2015. When Orlando City SC moved up to MLS, the club’s co-owner decided to invest in a new Louisville franchise to fill the void in USL left over from its departure. Louisville City quickly proved to be a powerhouse in the USL. It finished second in the conference and made the conference finals in both of its first two years. The next year marked an important breakthrough. Louisville City won its first regular season conference title and captured its first championship with a 1-0 victory over the Swope Park Rangers. In 2018, Louisville became the first team to repeat as USL champions in back-to-back season with a victory over Phoenix Rising FC.StubHub is a reliable source for Louisville City FC tickets to all home and away games.
