About the Energy
Energy FC is led by Interim Head Coach Leigh Veidman and is a part of the USL Championship, one of the largest professional soccer organizations in North America. The USL Championship is the top tier of the United Soccer League, above USL League One and USL League Two, which feature an additional 96 clubs combined. Energy FC was founded in 2013 and played its first season in 2014. The club makes its home at Oklahoma City's historic Taft Stadium and is playing its eighth season in 2021.
The league, which features 31 teams in 2021, not only serves as a springboard to Major League Soccer for players but also for franchises. Among the most successful clubs, the Vancouver Whitecaps, Seattle Sounders, Portland Timbers, Montreal Impact, Orlando City SC, FC Cincinnati and Nashville SC all operated in the USL Championship before making the transition to MLS.
