Ben Gumpert, Courtesy Sacramento Republic FC

Sacramento Republic FC embraces the city's motto – Urbs Indomita (Indomitable City) – and is living that during the COVID-19 pandemic as the team plays matches that can only be seen on TV and works to provide for the community when not on the field.

On this week's episode of the Visit Sacramento Podcast, Republic FC President and COO Ben Gumpert shares how games are different in an empty stadium, how the team is working to raise spirits in the community, and how he's excited to watch the team build a legacy in Sacramento as it prepares to join Major League Soccer in 2023.
