Reno 1868 FC announced that they will be ceasing operations immediately.
This hurts. This hurts way more than a gut punch. I feel like a lot has been taken away from me. Not like that is anyones fault. I’m not angry. I’m not depressed yet. Losing this team is like losing a lot for me. It’s not just losing all of the content that i make surrounding the team. It’s losing a lot more than that. There are friends that I only see at Reno 1868 FC matches. I may never see them again. It’s hard to explain but it’s losing the community that surrounds the team. Thats how I feel right now. There are ways that the fans can still save the team. It doesn’t seem like that is likely. If it does happen the team will probably not stay in their current form. This sucks. We were just getting started. It’s not difficult to see coming. Fans were having talks about this as soon as the USL postponed the season. Honestly Reno 1868 FC has never been profitable (as far as I know). I think that was a factor in the team folding. I think that will be a key factor in trying to save the team. Again this sucks. Really sucks. I think moving forward our efforts as fans and supporters will be to “save the team”. I am not done yet. This team shall live on. If nothing else just trying to secure the name and playing non-league I’ll consider a win.
