Colorado Springs Switchbacks

The Colorado Springs Switchbacks Football Club is one of the newest professional soccer clubs competing in the USL (United Soccer League), playing their inaugural season in 2015.

The Switchbacks were founded by owner, Ed Ragain, a successful engineer and businessman who founded and built a Colorado based engineering firm into an international engineering leader. Ed’s company, ME Engineers, has designed many of the largest sporting venues, health care systems, and airports around the world. He has personally written the broadcast lighting design guidelines for FIFA, MLS, NFL, MLB, NBA, and the Olympic Broadcast Systems.

The United Soccer League (USL) has been organizing professional and amateur soccer under the umbrella of the US Soccer Federation (USSF) since the 1980’s. Unlike other professional sports in the US, the USSF provides overall guidance and plan for the development of the sport in this country. From competitive youth leagues all the way to the USL, MLS, and Men’s/Women’s National Team, the USSF is the governing body.


“Our team is doing great things in Colorado Springs— powered by strong partnerships. As a client of CB Insurance, we’ve appreciated their quality of service, value, and unmatched level of expertise.”

– Nick Ragain, President
