Utah Royals History

The Royals are a new team for NWSL in 2024, but not exactly a new team.

Originally the Utah Royals were founded in 2017 after MLS side Real Salt Lake effectively acquired FC Kansas City and relocated the club to Salt Lake City.

The club played two seasons in NWSL, missing the playoffs each time. In 2020, COVID-19 canceled the regular season, but the Royals hosted the 2020 Challenge Cup. This was the first professional team sports event to return to play in the US that year. However, Utah lost in the quarterfinals.

Later that year, in the NWSL Fall Series, Utah finished dead last. And that turned out to be their last action in the league. Controversies with ownership caused the team to fold, and in an Uno-reverse-card moment, all player assets were transferred to a new team back in Kansas City.

In 2023, the Royals were re-established by RSL, set to kick off again in 2024. They’ll share America First Field with the MLS club, with the club’s all-time leading scorer, and former USWNT player, Amy Rodriguez serving as the first manager in the new era.
