This year's USL Hall of Fame inductees - Charleston Battery Coach Mike Anhaeuser (Coach), Charlotte Lady Eagles President Patrick Stewart (Builder), former Hampton Roads Piranhas star Mercy Akide-Udoh (Player) - were also honored.

USL PRO’s Harrisburg City Islanders, the PDL’s Laredo Heat and the W-League’s London Gryphons were recognized for completing 10 seasons in the league. USL also honored its clubs and teams for their success on and off the field, rewarding excellence in USL PRO, the W-League and the PDL.
