Lansing Ignite

USL League One officially welcomed Lansing Ignite FC as a founding member of the new professional league, which will kick off play in 2019. Led by Majority Owner Tom Dickson, President Nick Grueser and Vice President and General Manager Jeremy Sampson, LIFC becomes the only professional outdoor soccer team in Michigan.

“With the Lansing Ignite Football Club, the City of Lansing’s second professional franchise, we’re putting the Capital City on the map in the national sports landscape,” said Owner Dickson. “A little over two decades ago, the nation saw how great of a sports city this is, drawing over a million fans in the Lansing Lugnuts’ first two record-setting seasons and going strong ever since. The soccer fans of Mid Michigan – kids, families, Lansing United, backed by The Ransom – have shown that there’s a huge appetite for the sport in the region.”
