NSC Minnesota Stars capture the NASL Championship

The NSC Minnesota Stars won the first North American Soccer League title against the Fort Lauderdale Strikers on a 3-1 aggregate following a 0-0 draw Saturday, October 29th, on a wet Lockhart Stadium.

Being the lowest ranked seed in these playoffs, the NSC Minnesota Stars went through a tough gauntlet of teams to get to this point. They had to go through the third-seeded FC Tampa Bay, the regular season champion Carolina RailHawks, and finally, the Fort Lauderdale Strikers.

The match tonight was tough for both teams. A rainstorm prior to the match caused the field to be very wet, making the ball tough to play with a simple touch or pass.

The Rowdies are back!

Citrus Sports Group, LLC, the ownership group of FC Tampa Bay, today announced that the team name will be changed from FC Tampa Bay to the Tampa Bay Rowdies starting immediately for the 2012 season and beyond.

Citrus Sports Group reached an agreement with Texas-based Classic Ink, Inc. giving Citrus Sports Group immediate exclusive rights and future ownership of the Rowdies trademark.

“The Rowdies name has been synonymous with the highest level of professional soccer in the Tampa Bay area for decades,” said Citrus Sports Group President Andrew Nestor. “We are thrilled to bring it back for soccer fans in Tampa Bay, around the country and around the globe. The Rowdies were Tampa’s first ever pro sports franchise and claimed Tampa Bay’s first pro championship in 1975 winning the NASL Championship. We are appreciative of Classic Ink and their willingness to work with us on this agreement.”

The club unveiled today a new primary team logo, which prominently features the word Rowdies and is a direct link to the original Rowdies logo. The team’s new website will be located at RowdiesSoccer.com. The team will unveil new uniforms and secondary branding leading up to the 2012 season.

NASL Receives Full USSF Sanctioning
Image
MIAMI, Fla. (March 3, 2012) – The U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) today formally admitted the North American Soccer League (NASL) as a member to continue operating as a Division 2 men’s outdoor professional soccer league in the United States. The NASL’s candidacy for full membership was approved this morning by a vote of the USSF National Council at the USSF Annual General Meeting in Miami.

“We’ve worked tirelessly over the past several years to create a new, sustainable long-term platform for Division 2 professional soccer in North America and the Caribbean. We thank the Federation for their leadership and cooperation in helping us elevate second division standards in order to make our vision a reality,” said Aaron Davidson, Chairman of the NASL Board of Governors.

“After a successful inaugural campaign in which we worked to stabilize Division 2, we are pleased to have the formal approval that fully empowers us to move ahead with our plans to grow our league. We look forward to continuing to play a critical role in the development and maturation of soccer in North America and the Caribbean,” said David Downs, NASL Commissioner.

The 2012 NASL Regular Season kicks off on April 7 with all eight active teams in action on that Saturday night.

Cosmos to play in NASL for 2013 season


The North American Soccer League announced on Thursday that the Cosmos have joined the league and will begin league play in the 2013 season.
The NASL Board of Governors unanimously approved the Cosmos’ membership during its meetings this week.

It has been nearly 30 years since the Cosmos have played in a professional league, last performing in the original NASL in 1984.

It was not immediately known as to whether the club's NASL presence will open up possibilities of playing in Major League Soccer.

It is not immediately known whether performing in the NASL was a prelude play in Major League Soccer, which is gung-ho on adding a 20th franchise, an expansion team in New York City. The league is hopeful of building a new stadium in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens.

While Indy Eleven continues to prepare for its inaugural season beginning this April, the North American Soccer League franchise is also focused on finding a long-term solution for a new multi-purpose stadium that will serve as a home for the club in addition to host concerts and various sporting and community events.

The proposed 20,000-seat outdoor venue in downtown Indianapolis fills a void in the state’s outdoor facility lineup. That void is currently limiting the state’s ability to provide cultural and athletic experiences for millions of Hoosiers who have a passion for soccer, music and other sporting and cultural events.

Indianapolis: New MLS-sized stadium planned

It's not another MLS expansion yet, but why wait so long – says Ersal Ozdemir, founder of Indy Eleven. His plan of building a new 18,500-capacity stadium is already underway, though the club hasn't even played its first game in the second league.

Indianapolis may have one of the world's most modern stadium in town, but the Lucas Oil Dome is far too large for the demand of many events, including domestic football games.

But the newly-established NASL team Indy Eleven have already proven there's a very big fanbase to build upon. Ahead of its first second league season, Eleven already filled 100% of their season ticket offer, selling 7,000 out of 11,000 seats available at academic Carroll Stadium.

Now the plan is to get a stadium the club could call home in the long term. One that would be prepared for a move upwards, to the MLS. As there are no promotions or relegations in the US, one can advance with financial and infrastructural status.

The MLS requires a stadium of close to 20,000 capacity. That's why real estate tycoon Ersal Ozdemir plans to have a new 18,500-capacity stadium up and running as soon as possible. Its cost is hoped to be at around $87 million.

Movement brewing to bring back the Sting

Klopas played in 140 games and scored 62 goals for the Sting.

Rumors of a Sting comeback have been circulating since early September, when the Twitter handle @Chicago_Sting was established with the bio: “Chicago’s true football club. MIA since 1988. Some think it’s maybe time to make a comeback. Chicago’s footballing dreams.”

In September, the Sun-Times contacted former Sting owner Lee Stern, who said he had no plans to revive the team. Stern’s Sting won NASL titles in 1981 and 1984.

Stern did say the NASL had contacted him for advice about running a team in Chicago.

MLS Commissioner Don Garber set to meet with to San Antonio mayor to discuss expansion prospects
Image

It seems everyone wants a piece of the MLS expansion pie.

MLS Commissioner Don Garber will head to San Antonio on Tuesday to meet with mayor Julian Castro and Gordon Hartman, the owner of NASL's Scorpions, to discuss the possibility of an expansion bid, according to a report from the San Antonio Express-News. Garber was reportedly scheduled to meet with Castro in New York in November but was forced to cancel, and will now arrive in San Antonio ahead of Wednesday's friendly between Mexico and South Korea at the Alamodome.

Jacksonville NASL expansion franchise announces Armada FC name, club logo
Image

The brand new NASL franchise in Jacksonville was christened on Tuesday — Jacksonville Armada FC — and was branded with a club logo (above).

The Armada name, which came from a fan competition and survey that yielded more than 1,500 entrants, gives a nod to the region's rich Spanish heritage and strong military connection.

The fan vote was also used to select the club's colors — navy blue, royal blue, gold and white — which are another expression of Jacksonville culture and the city's close links to the area's US Navy and other military installations, which also explains the prominently featured anchor.
