WILX-TV 10 in Lansing originally reported a week ago that the United Soccer League's League One team would fold.

The Ignite had a successful season on the field in 2019, finishing with a 12-6-10 record, or 46 points.  That record was good enough for second place in the league and qualified them for the USL League One Playoffs.  However, the Ignite lost to Greenville SC on October 12th in the league's semifinals 1-0 at Cooley Law School Stadium.
