Flower City Union is a men's professional soccer team that in December 2020 announced they would be playing in the third-tier [WWW]National Independent Soccer Association beginning with the 2022 season. Home games are played in the Rochester Community Sports Complex (the former home of the Rhinos on Oak Street).

The 2022 season home opener was March 26; the team struggled to a 2-3-18 league record and last place in the 9-team NISA, although they did post a win in the first round of the US Open Cup.

For 2023 the team merged with the former Syracuse Pulse and played some home games in Syracuse (as well as a few road games) as the Salt City Union. An 8-3-13 league record placed them sixth; entering the playoffs as bottom seed the team scored three upsets to take the NISA championship..

Flower City 1872

In March 2023 the Rochester Lancers announced that membership in [WWW]United Women's Soccer, under which the Lady Lancers had competed, would be transferred to Flower City Union. The women's team competes in the East Division of UWS' East Conference, finishing 14th of 16 teams with a 1-0-5 record in 2023. (The "1872" in the name honors the year in which Susan B. Anthony was arrested for voting in a federal election.)
