On Monday,the Monitor, a news outlet based in McAllen, Texas, posted an article that talked about the local Rio Grande Valley Vipers organization being awarded a USL franchise to begin playing in the third-tier of American soccer in 2016.
The article states that the Dynamo are not looking to own and operate a franchise of their own. This seems to point to the Vipers becoming the affiliate of the Dynamo. It's unclear as to what role the Houston Dynamo of MLS will have in the creation and operation of the USL team, but the article says that Houston supposedly will "control soccer operations."
The USL has not released a statement about the Vipers and there is no indication on the league website or the Dynamo website that this deal has happened.
If true, the Vipers would be the second USL team in Texas, joining the Austin Aztex who are playing their first year in the league in 2015.
