McCullers Group founder and CEO Mark McCullers will be a featured presenter at the upcoming United Soccer League (USL) Summer Showcase August 9-11 in Colorado Springs, Colo.

McCullers will address USL owners, league and team executives, as well as prospective markets, clubs, and franchisees, during the league’s annual midyear meetings and community celebration. The USL is North America’s largest and fastest-growing professional soccer organization, with three men’s leagues, two women’s leagues, one elite player development platform, and a national youth platform. The USL counts more than 200 clubs as members.

McCullers’ presentation, Building a Home: The 7 Critical Elements of Stadium Predevelopment, will detail the fundamentals of stadium predevelopment, from vision and site selection to budgeting and funding.

McCullers has more than 30 years’ experience in the sports and entertainment industry, including 15 with Major League Soccer’s (MLS) Columbus Crew, serving as President and General Manager alongside legendary owner and sports entrepreneur Lamar Hunt. In addition to helping build one of the league’s founding franchises, he led the development of Historic Crew Stadium, the very first soccer-specific stadium in the United States.

“The USL is a model league that really understands its value proposition and what it means to grow responsibly,” said McCullers. “It’s been a privilege to work with a number of the league’s owners on new stadium developments and have the chance to share what we’ve learned with future owners as they can continue to build and grow.”

McCullers Group provides owners and developers of sports-anchored real estate developments with planning, project management, and optimization services that help bring their visions to life. The firm’s thoughtful, efficient, profitable approach has helped produce legacy projects and long-term impact in communities across the country.
