RGV Barracudas FC is an American soccer club based in Hidalgo, Texas. Founded in 2004 as an amateur team,[1] the men's indoor squad made its professional debut at the Barracudas Sports Complex as the Brownsville Barracudas in the Major Arena Soccer League during the 2014–15 season.[2][3] The club signed Luis Ángel Landín the following year, and that season advanced to the Division Final vs. Las Vegas Legends after his golden goal against Atlético Baja at Tijuana.

After taking the 2016–17 MASL season off to regroup, the Barracudas will return for the 2017–18 season as the Rio Grande Valley Barracudas, playing the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo.[4]

The club's colors are blue and white; their home uniform, sponsored by Pirma, is a royal blue shirt with a white collar and faded, barely visible stripes, and white shorts with blue socks.
