An Iranian-American businessman named Ali Mansouri founded the Los Angeles Blues, which were launched as a USL Pro franchise on December 7, 2010. The Orange County Blues have been competing in Los Angeles-area amateur leagues since 1998 and are affiliated with the United Soccer Leagues W-League team LA Blues. On December 14, 2010, they unveiled their first three players: goalkeeper Oscar Dautt, midfielders Cesar Rivera and Josh Tudela. The Blues played their debut games in the Caribbean on April 15–17, 2011, winning 3–0 over Sevilla Puerto Rico and 2–1 over Antigua Barracuda after a lengthy preseason campaign. Cesar Rivera scored the first goal in the franchise’s history.
To improve marketing and front-office expertise, the Blues hired Steve Donner (former CEO of Orlando City) as vice president of business operations in January 2012. There were 2,432 fans in attendance for the first home game of the 2012 season, up from 696 in 2011’s opener (the Blues averaged 382 during the 2011 season). As part of a multi-year agreement that expired in 2018, the squad was designated as Los Angeles FC’s USL affiliate. Orange County SC was the team’s new name after it was purchased by American entrepreneur James Keston.
There were 20 wins, eight defeats, and six draws in 2018 for the club in the Western Conference Regular Season Championship. They beat Saint Louis FC and Reno 1868 FC on their way to the Western Conference Final, where they were beaten 2–1 by Phoenix Rising FC. Aodhan Quinn and Thomas Enevoldsen were both selected to the All-League First Team after each scored 20 goals.
