History

The Nevada Wonders were founded in 2003 to compete in the USL Premier Development League (PDL), considered the fourth tier of the American soccer pyramid. A Carson City, Nevada group, led by Randy Roser, were awarded the franchise in December 2002 to begin play in the following season, coinciding with the recent transition of former tier three USL D-3 Pro League team, Northern Nevada Aces, voluntarily becoming an amateur team and joining the newly founded Men's Premier Soccer League in 2003.

The Wonders would be coached by the former Aces coach, Paul Aigbogun, and would play their home games out of Carson High School.[1]

The club would play three seasons in the PDL before folding.
