Brew City United Looks to Score After Pass from Brew City Legends

The Brew City Legends MLIS membership has been transferred to Brew City United after a transition of the Milwaukee MLIS operating rights to a new local group. Brew City Legends owner Denzel Pettigrew, who will retain the Legends name and trademarks, is moving out of state.

"We are excited to welcome the United group to the league, and we would like to thank Denzel Pettigrew and the outgoing ownership for bringing MLIS indoor soccer to Milwaukee," said MLIS Commissioner Dominic Turcotte. "We are anticipating a seamless transition."

Brew City United will move to Uihlein Soccer Park for their remaining five home games, and some dates, including this Saturday's scheduled home game, will have to be changed to accommodate the move.

The Brew City United FC ownership group is composed of seasoned, community-focused sports personalities, including former players, soccer executives, and grassroots supporters. The team will continue to be coached by Lito Zabala, who also acts as one of the organization's directors, and much of the roster will remain intact.

Director of Strategy Nate Thompkins explained the rebrand. "We have decided to start a new business to strengthen the franchise, improve the brand, help the previous owner, and preserve the soccer history in our community," Thompkins said.

"Milwaukee is such an important urban soccer market," said the club's Chairperson Dr. Robert Baker. "That's why we are so excited to be working with Coach Zabala and MLIS to make sure that the next generation is getting a chance to showcase their game on a bigger stage."
