USL adds stadium design provider to roster of preferred suppliers

The United Soccer Leagues (USL) has announced Odell as its preferred stadium design provider. Financial terms of the two-year agreement have not been disclosed, but the partnership will make Odell a preferred supplier for all related properties, including the USL, USL Division III, the Premier Development League (PDL) and the Super Y League.
