[powerpress] We told you that we were taking off this week, but Bryan, Boston and Brad decided to give their thoughts on the current Division Two (D2) sanctioning issues with the US Soccer Federation. Hear the guys elaborate on the situation, give the background of both leagues and why D2 matters.
Highlights from this week’s show.
Bryan, Boston and Brad layout the current situation of US Soccer Division Two Professional sanctioning. The United Soccer League (USL) and the North American Soccer League (NASL) have each applied to fill the second tier of professional league in the United States.
The current D2 league (NASL) has struggled with losing teams to MLS, financial difficulties, league moves or ownership hardships. Seven teams remain in the NASL, but the league is hoping to find several additional teams to help meet USSF league sanctioning criteria.
The current Division Three (D3) league (USL) has grown by leaps and bounds expanding to 30 teams for the 2017 season. However, several clubs are run by MLS franchises and may not meet several standards including staff, stadium or city population sizes.
US Soccer has much to consider and the guys will elaborate on how it can impact the American soccer landscape and our local club.
Bryan also makes another promise that he might not be able to keep. Stay tuned.
