GOAL! Milwaukee Wave to join another indoor soccer league
MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Milwaukee Wave has reached agreement with the Professional Arena Soccer League (PASL) and will join that league. They will also continue to play at the U.S. Cellular Arena for the 2014-15 season.
The PASL currently has 20 teams according to its website. Those teams are in cities including Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Detroit.
“We are very excited to announce that Professional Indoor Soccer will be back in Milwaukee this season. I like the PASL economic platform a lot. In the past, the Wave operated like the New York Yankees. PASL puts all teams on a more even playing field. These new operating rules put in place are critical to our financial success. Furthermore parity should create a more exciting on-field product,” said Mike Zimmerman.
“Being a part of this league expansion is epic! Having a field of teams that stretches through all of North America is great for this sport. We are especially looking forward to claiming the Championship cup from the Chicago Mustangs, an instant rivalry in the making, said Sue Black.
According to the Wave website, the search for a new head coach continues and will be revealed in the coming weeks along with a 2014/15 schedule.
