The Fargo Force[1] [2]is a Tier 1 junior ice hockey team in the West Division of the United States Hockey League (USHL).




In early 2007, Fargo was granted a USHL team, intended as an anchor tenant for the then-under-construction Urban Plains Center.

The team, in conjunction with the WDAY radio station and Forum Communications held a name-the-team contest to decide what the team would be called. After the choices were narrowed to Fargo Force, Fargo Phantoms, and Fargo Fire, the Force name was chosen. Twelve people submitted the Force name; as a result, they won a dinner with head coach Dean Blais and each received two season tickets to the Force's inaugural season. [3]

As a result of the Force's entry, the area's previous hockey team, the Fargo-Moorhead Jets of the North American Hockey League announced they were leaving the area in April 2008 [4], and folded later that year. [5]
