A new NASL club based in Orange County was announced in May and the name has now been unveiled ahead of the 2018 NASL season. The club will be California United FC, with the official logo and branding announced in the coming weeks.. 
"The more we thought about who we are and what we want to achieve, the more we kept coming back to that word: 'United,'" said president and general manager Michael Collins, who played an integral part in the decision-making process that led eventually and organically to the name California United Football Club.
The club is hoping to have a sharp focus on player development and scouting, while giving local players a chance to showcase their abilities. 
"A lot of really talented players go off the rails because the support's not there and life gets in the way," added Collins, a former midfielder who blazed a trail through the American indoor and outdoor scene in the 1980s and 90s, earning a pair of caps with the U.S. national team. "We want to find these players and give them a fair chance to recalibrate their careers and ambitions at our club."
Owner Pete Capriotti added: "We're going to do things differently, and that will all grow from how we treat our players, putting them at the heart of everything we do here and creating opportunities for them.
"We are taking our efforts to the base where soccer culture is vibrant, and truly resides. We'll be the player-centric and community-oriented option, and we'll give everyone an honest look. We want to help players fulfill their dreams, and we want local amateur clubs to benefit together with us in this combined endeavor."
Cal Utd has signed a letter of intent to play their home games at Cal State Fullerton's 10,000-seat Titan Stadium. The venue boasts a natural grass playing-surface and has hosted numerous FIFA-sanctioned international friendlies. It ranks among the top soccer-specific stadiums on the West Coast.
