Greenville Triumph SC History
In April of 2017, the United Soccer League (USL) D3 was officially established, and shortly after that, league officials began traveling around the country in search of potential cities to establish new soccer clubs. During his visit to Greenville in July of 2017, USL D3 vice president Steven Short stated to local press that Greenville was one of the top candidates for the league. Greenville was not selected.
In January of 2018, the league started naming teams that would compete in their first season in 2019, which would be in 2019. On March 13, 2018, it was formally revealed that Greenville would be getting a USL D3 club, and local business mogul Joe Erwin was named as the club’s primary owner at that time.
After teams from Tormenta FC and FC Tucson, which were previously established in the sport and competed in the Premier Development League, the Greenville squad became the newest member of the Premier Development League. In only its first season of existence, the squad was able to earn a spot in the postseason. On August 9, 2018, the team’s name, which is the Greenville Triumph SC, as well as its logo and color scheme, were revealed.
It was reported on August 27 that the squad will be coached by John Harkes, a former player for the United States national team who had also been the head coach of the USL club FC Cincinnati for the 2016 season. Harkes had previously served in this capacity for the 2016 campaign. A deal with Harkes that is good for three years was reached. GTSC made the announcement that they will be fielding a women’s side on June 8, 2021, with the intention of competing in the new USL W League beginning in 2022.
Greenville Triumph SC Stadium
Greenville, South Carolina’s college preparation school, Legacy Early College, features a stadium with 4,000 seats called Legacy Early College Field on its grounds. The school is located in Greenville. The fact that Greenville Triumph SC, a professional soccer club, calls it their home pitch and plays in USL League One, the third division of soccer in the United States, has brought the stadium the majority of its notoriety throughout the years.
On January 28, 2022, it was revealed by GTSC officials that after a two-year search for a new stadium location, they had landed on a six-acre site in Mauldin, South Carolina at Bridgeway Station. This decision came after the announcement that they had been searching for a new stadium location. The proposed stadium would have a total seating capacity of 8,100 people and may serve as a venue for multiple sports. It is anticipated that the construction of the stadium will be finished in time for the start of the 2023 season if county officials give their blessing to the plan.
