North American Soccer League Announces 2013 Spring Schedule


MIAMI, Fla. January 10, 2013 ̶ The two teams that battled for the 2012 North American Soccer League (NASL) championship face tough rematches of last year’s semi finals when the 2013 NASL Spring Season kicks off on Saturday, April 6.

“I’m eager to watch the intriguing matchups unfold on opening weekend,” said NASL Commissioner Bill Peterson. “I feel this is a schedule that will excite our fans because of the added pressure to win every game under the new format. 2013 will be a milestone year for the NASL and our teams and I can’t wait for it to kick off.”

Eric Wynalda Named Silverbacks Technical Director

US Soccer Legend Served as Interim Head Coach and Team Advisor in 2012



Atlanta Silverbacks have appointed former interim head coach and U.S. soccer legend Eric Wynalda as the team’s technical director, the club announced Monday.

“I’m thrilled to continue my relationship with the Silverbacks, and I’m just excited to try and help the club achieve the success on the field that they’re striving for,” Wynalda said. “I know how serious the organization is about winning a NASL championship and also making a run in the U.S. Open Cup, so I’m looking forward to working with Brian Haynes and the rest of the organization to meet those goals.”

Wynalda, 43, will be filling a new role with the Silverbacks after serving as the club’s interim head coach and team advisor during the second half of the 2012 season. The former U.S. Men’s National Team star helped orchestrate an impressive turnaround for a team that managed only eight points through its first 14 games. The team posted the league’s best record over the last nine games of the season under Wynalda and Brian Haynes, who he hired as the team’s permanent head coach in early August.

Atlanta Silverbacks Unveil New Logo


It may have been a long and winding road for the Atlanta Silverbacks and their fans, but the search for a new logo is over. The club unveiled its new logo at a party on Wednesday night at Brewhouse Café in Little Five Points, bringing a conclusion to a two-month-long process.

“We’re very happy with our new logo and we want to thank everyone who was a part of the process,” said Silverbacks Chairman Boris Jerkunica. “Getting everyone involved was a lot of fun, and I think it made the whole process much more enjoyable. Without the fan involvement, I don’t think we would have come up with such a great logo design.”

The new logo, designed by Wisconsin native Ryan Foose, was one of four finalists in the Silverbacks Logo Design Contest, which began in mid-November. Throughout the final round of the contest, people from all over the world voted for their favorite finalist via the Silverbacks’ website, and in the end, the club ended up receiving thousands of votes.

Top 10 prospect list from the 2012 NASL season


Now that almost every MLS club are in pre-season training, it is that time where rumours are flying around on trialists and potential signings for the upcoming season. While many focus on players coming over from abroad, or what rookies will make an impact from the SuperDraft, the divisions below MLS can provide plenty of potential for those willing to take a chance.

Cosmos Add Kyle Reynish

Reynish Joins Cosmos After Six Seasons in MLS


The New York Cosmos announced today the signing of goalkeeper Kyle Reynish as the club’s second signing this offseason.

The 6-foot-3 Reynish, 29, joins the Cosmos from Real Salt Lake where he had served as the backup to MLS All-Star goalkeeper Nick Rimando since 2007.

“Kyle is a goalkeeper that I have been following for a long time and I am very happy to be able to bring him to the club,” said Cosmos head coach, Giovanni Savarese. “Along with Carlos Mendes, Kyle Reynish gives us a strong foundation at the back from which we can build around.”

After being drafted by Real Salt Lake in the fourth round (43rd overall) of the 2007 MLS SuperDraft, Reynish spent six seasons in Utah and impressed whenever called upon. In three starts during the 2012 season, he recorded a 0.67 GAA, 1-0-2 record and two shutouts.
