Sounds like Pro Soccer’s Coming to Bremerton

September 16th, 2008 by cstark

UPDATE: You can read an updated version of this story here.

THIS WAS THE EARLY VERSION:

It’s not a done deal, but it finally looks Robin Waite of Tracyton is going to bring professional soccer to Kitsap County.

Efforts to bring the United Soccer Leagues Division I team now called the Sounders to this side of the water didn’t work out, but Waite’s confident he’ll have a USL Premier Development League franchise operating at Bremerton Memorial Stadium by May of 2009. A public meeting was held last Thursday, and there wasn’t any opposition.

Waite and the Bremerton School District are working on a lease agreement. Waite has promised to replace the existing scoreboard and says he’ll add a video screen later.

I’ve got calls into the school district and USL and hope to have a story ready for our print editions on Wednesday.

If you want more information about the USL and PDL specifically, check out the league’s website here.

    I don’t expect Beckham to be coming over to Kitsap, but pro soccer in Bremerton is a good idea whose time has come.
