The island territory of Puerto Rico has a team in America One that was founded in 1976. They originally were an all-star team from the Puerto Rican league that would play in the US Open Cup annually. A few teams in the States complained about their admittance because their status as a territory or a country for sports is always a question, and an agreement was formed that the Puerto Rico Soccer Club would begin playing in the America Two league in 1976 but could not participate in the US Open Cup as an all-star team. Since that time FIFA has classified Puerto Rico separate from the United States and they cannot participate in the Open Cup. By and large they’ve played in America One, but they spent one special season in the Premier League in 2000. The team's badge is completely inspired by their flag on a long shield. The team's uniforms also take inspiration from the flag with bold red and white stripes with navy shorts for the primary, and an all navy kit for the change. The stripes are still present however they are pinstripes on the change kit. On the neck is the island's motto: "Juan es su Nombre."
