LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- For the second straight year, Louisville City FC has won the USL Cup.
LCFC defeated Phoenix Rising 1-0 in front of a sold out crowd of more than 7,000 at Lynn Stadium.
They became the first team to win back-to-back in the USL.
Fans found it hard to contain their excitement.
"To be here again, and to be in a great position to win it, it just feels great," James Pizzolato said.
The two titles making history, earning one at Slugger Field in 2017 and the second at Lynn Stadium, but LouCity is still waiting for a home of their own.
It's been nearly five months since the groundbreaking of the soccer stadium in Butchertown.
Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer told WHAS 11 News that construction is on track.
“Financing has been set, the piling is going into place right now, so construction is underway, the site is cleared,” Fischer explained.
This year, the team also did some construction of their own.
Coach James O'Connor said good-bye in June, and player coaches took over for two months until John Hackworth was hired to take the lead.
“It speaks to how great these guys are, how hard they worked, and I mean we're ready for it,” Pizzalato said.
The four-year-old team team has already tallied four straight trips to the Eastern Conference Finals and, now, back to back trips to the USL Cup Championship.
Along with the stadium, fans believe a dynasty is being built in Louisville.
“Everything that I've ever wanted by moving here to Louisville is having a club where my children will go to games and their children will go to games so having that stadium, that place to call home, just cements the fact that Louisville City FC will be here for 40, 50, 60, years past whenever I'm gone,” said Jordan Cooper.
