Rhode Island Pro Soccer launches social media platforms
The upstart professional soccer club from Rhode Island today announced the launch of its new social media platform, marking another milestone in its development.
The club uploaded their Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts this morning, and they are as follows:
Rhode Island is for us.

The club says in a press release that “Now the Rhode Islanders, including its incredibly diverse football community, can follow the club’s social media for news and information related to the team and Tidewater Stadium. “Fans will receive updates and breaking news as developments occur. Most importantly, Rhode Island Professional Soccer’s social media channels are a portal for the community to engage directly with the club.”
“This is a small but important step in the development of our club and our stadium,” club chairman Brett Johnson said in a statement. “We want this club and stadium to represent Rhode Island and connect with all Rhode Islanders, and we hope to establish that with a content-rich and engaging social and digital media platform.”
The Rhode Island Professional Soccer Club is currently gearing up for its inaugural season at Tidewater Stadium. Work is already underway on the national grid site along the Seekonk River in Pawtucket, with the football-specific site scheduled to open in 2023.
The stadium is part of a larger mixed-use project that will be one of the largest economic developments in Rhode Island’s history. The football club, stadium and surrounding real estate development project is being led by Fortuitous Partners.
Fortuitous Partners is an investment company that invests in real estate developments and operations, particularly in mixed-use real estate projects rooted in sports. Fortuitous Partners has the exclusive rights to bring a USL Championship League team to Rhode Island.
