The team will now be part of the Rochester Lancers family."

The new outdoor Rochester Lancers will play in the National Premier Soccer League starting in May, 2017.  “I am excited to help bring back the Rochester Lancers to this area,” said Doug Miller. “After meeting Nick and Marc, I thought as a group we would have the capability to bring back the soccer culture we created with the Indoor Lancers.”
