Real Colorado Foxes is an American soccer team based in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, United States. Founded in 2008, the team plays in the USL Premier Development League (PDL), the fourth tier of the American Soccer Pyramid, in the Heartland Division of the Central Conference.

The team plays its home games at Shea Stadium, where they have played since 2009. The team's colors are red, black and white.

History[edit]

The Foxes joined the PDL in 2009,[1] and played their first ever game on May 9, 2009, against Kansas City Brass. The Foxes won the game 3-2, with the first goal in franchise history being scored by Chris Salvaggione.[2]

In 2011, the team qualified for its first Lamar Hunt US Open Cup by winning the first 4 games of the regular season. The Foxes then advanced to the second round by knocking out USASA’s DV8 Defenders of Redwood City, California with a 5-0 convincing victory to fall short to Kitsap Pumas, another seasoned PDL side in Bremerton, Washington, by a score of 3-1.
