Current season

Real Monarchs is the reserve team of American soccer club Real Salt Lake that plays in the USL Championship. [2] The team currently play their games at Zions Bank Stadium in Herriman, Utah. [3]

History

RSL Academy coach Freddy Juarez was named Head Coach on December 23, 2014. [4] The Monarchs played the LA Galaxy II to a scoreless tie in their USL debut on March 22, 2015 in Carson, California. [5]

At the end of the 2016 season, Freddy Juarez was promoted to be an assistant coach for the Monarchs' parent team, Real Salt Lake and Mike Petke was brought in as his replacement along with Mark Briggs and Jamison Olave as his assistants. On March 29, 2017, Petke was promoted to Real Salt Lake's head coach following the dismissal of Jeff Cassar and Briggs was announced as his replacement.

On June 19, 2017, the Real Monarchs broke the All-Time USL Record with nine consecutive victories by beating Reno 1868 2–1 at Rio Tinto Stadium.

The club won their first ever trophy on October 7, 2017, claiming the USL's regular season title with a 1–1 draw against Whitecaps FC 2.

The 2018 Season finished with a first round playoff exit after Head Coach Mark Briggs was replaced by interim coach Jamison Olave.

Beginning in 2018, Real Monarchs will play home matches at Zions Bank Stadium, a 5,000-seat soccer-specific stadium in Herriman. The stadium is adjacent to the training facilities and academy for Real Salt Lake.
