U.S. Soccer Releases Statement Regarding USL & NASL

With movement across the American soccer landscape, U.S. Soccer felt a statement was necessary.
High-ranking members of U.S. Soccer met with representatives from the United Soccer League and North American Soccer League to discuss Division II plans for 2010. In the meeting was U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati, CEO/Secretary General Dan Flynn and Professional Council Chairman Don Garber.

“We had a productive meeting and the discussions will continue,” said Gulati of the meeting in a statement released on USSoccer.com. “In the interim we have asked both groups to submit additional information.”

Both leagues have been asked to submit further information regarding their future plans to U.S. Soccer’s Professional League Task Force by December 9th.

From there, the task force will advise the U.S. Soccer board of any further action that may be necessary regarding the two leagues.
