Return of professional soccer to Wilmington could be postponed


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A return of pro soccer to the Port City is still in the works, but things might be postponed. Christopher Mumford, a member of the “USL to Wilmington” group, says more time is needed to finalize the playing venue and a local investor group. The group is hoping to play at Legion Stadium, but they also want to build a food hall on site. The City of Wilmington has asked for a more detailed plan regarding the potential food hall as well.

Earlier this year, WWAY spoke with Mumford regarding the possibility of professional soccer returning to the Wilmington area. You can see the interview and view the full story on soccer’s potential return here.
