El Paso USL soccer team asks public to name team

El Paso USL soccer team "Name the Team" contest

El Paso’s newest USL team needs a name.

The deadline to submit a name suggestion has been extended by 15 days.

Earlier in March, it was announced that El Paso would join the United Soccer League.

The public is encouraged to send their recommendations for the team’s name by April 20.

"We are having fun engaging fans in the Borderplex with the team naming process. The responses we received to date are thoughtful and playful, and reflect the region's enthusiasm for professional soccer. We'd like to hear more from the community, so we encourage everyone to participate," said Alan Ledford, President of MountainStar Sports Group.

Fanss can log on to and enter their nominations.

“It’s time to engage El Pasoans in the process and we are excited to launch the Name the Team contest,” said Alan Ledford, president of MountainStar Sports Group.

The top-ranked names will be voted on by the public. The selected name will be announced in the summer.

The winner will receive two season seats for the 2019 season, two official jerseys, and will have their picture taken with the team during the 2019 season.

The criteria for selecting a team name include name popularity based on public entries and voting, creativity, how well the name represents El Paso, and family-friendliness.

El Paso USL soccer will debut in March of 2019. Those interested in placing a Season Seat Deposit to be among the first to select their season tickets can do so with a $50 per seat deposit at or may call 915-235-GOAL. Ticket prices and packages will be announced in the coming months.
