Reno 1868 FC Crest

Reno 1868 FC is still months away from hitting the pitch but as of today, they are one step closer to doing that.

The team announced on Wednesday that they have appointed Andy Smith as the club's first general manager.

Smith will lead day-to-day operations and manage the 1868's relationship with Major League Soccer affiliate San Jose Quakes. Smith will also handle soccer related business with the United Soccer League, who the 1868 will be a part of.

The GM is new to Reno but not new to soccer. Smith has spent his last four years as the President and General Manager of the Atlanta Silverbacks .

Reno 1868 FC is set to hit the pitch at Greater Nevada Field March 2017.
