Louisville – Metro Council President David James (D-6) releases a statement on behalf of the Louisville Metro Council after learning of the death of Wayne Estopinal, a founding owner of LouCity FC:

“On Thursday night, we honored LouCity FC for winning their second USL back to back championship. It’s a sad day. We on the Metro Council are saddened to hear about the death of Wayne Estopinal.

While he was a professional architect, we are fortunate that his love of sports and love of something new would bring Metro Louisville a vision. He joined with others to bring forth a vision that brought us LouCityFC. It was an idea that was something new, something exciting for a city on the move.

We want to extend our thoughts and prayers to his family and friends as they grieve his passing, a passing that came too soon in a very accomplished life. He will be missed.”
