On January 11, 2019, Kerry Geocaris and Melissa Cruz-Cuene announced a new Women's Premier Soccer League team in Green Bay, called the Glory. Geocaris, a Green Bay native, had previously played for another WPSL team, the Milwaukee Torrent, and cited a lack of competitive women's soccer opportunities in the Green Bay area as a major factor in forming the Glory. The team was announced to play in the newly-formed Midwest Division as one of 29 expansion teams for the league. Chad Johnson was named coach, and the team was announced to play at Capital Credit Union Park, though they later moved to Aldo Santaga Stadium at University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
