Real Salt Lake Major League Soccer

Real Salt LakeWe congratulate Real Salt Lake for winning the 2009 MLS Cup championship.

Real Salt Lake is owned by Sports Capital Partners; Dave Checketts is the principal owner. Checketts has a long history in major league sports management.

Competition for the team was keen. The league selected Salt Lake City for several reasons, including Checketts experience and Utah's unique demographics. The league found that Utah has a significant soccer fan base already in place and has the nation's highest per-capita participation in organized soccer (estimated at more than 200,000 players).

Key Real Salt Lake players include Jason Kreis, the all-time leading scorer in league history.
