FC New York Gains PDL Affiliate

Lancaster Rattlers becomes feeder club for FC New York

FC New York Press Release - www.fcnewyorksoccer.com

Thursday, June 3, 2010

NEW YORK, NY - FC New York recently announced its first USL Premier Development League affiliate will be the Lancaster Rattlers, based in Lancaster, California. The two clubs will exchange best practices, while Lancaster will act as a feeder club for F.C. New York.

“Gerry Brunner and the Rattlers have been great," FC New York President Doug Petersen said. "They truly understand what we can achieve. We believe in the partnership and their area of geographic influence.”

For players in the Southern California region, being with the Rattlers potentially brings them only a step away from the professional ranks of F.C. New York.

USSF D2 Update; New Standards Set for League, Current and Future Owners



The much anticipated USSF D2 meeting on Monday took place in New York without much fanfare or negotiations according to sources involved with teams that participated. The meeting was in general amicable and US Soccer did allow discourse.

Those attending the meeting from the federation were Sunil Gulati, Dan Flynn, and Brian Remedi. Team owners attending were: Austin Aztex owner Phil Rawlins, Carolina Railhawks owner’s Bob Young and Selby Wellman and his son Brian, Crystal Palace Baltimore’s Pete Med, FC Edmonton owner Tom Faph, Miami FC/Traffic US president Aaron Davidson, Montreal Impact owner Joey Saputo, NSC Stars GM Kris Bjerkness, Rochester Rhinos owner Rob Clark, FC Tampa Bay majority owner Andrew Nestor and Vancouver Whitecaps president Greg Kerfoot and USL owner Rob Hoskins. Those not present were Jeff Cooper of AC St. Louis, representatives from Puerto Rico who were said to be frustrated and felt that they most likely will not meet the new USSF standards and the Portland Timbers who will be moving on to MLS next season. Vancouver and Montreal have been actively involved with these discussion because the Whitecaps and the Impact would like to discuss the possibility of keeping a team in the D2 league for developmental purposes. Atlanta’s Silverbacks Boris Jerkunica was not in attendance either which may be telling with his involvement with the league in the near future.

USL Restructures Professional Division
USL PRO Featuring Top Quality Competition to Debut in 2011


Designed to help ensure the long-term stability of professional soccer in North America, United Soccer Leagues announced the merger of its First and Second Divisions into a single league property for 2011 - USL PRO.

Team owners and league officials are meeting in Tampa, Florida today to lay the groundwork for the 2011 debut of USL PRO, which will be governed by team owners and present the highest level of competition in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean outside of Major League Soccer (MLS).

USL PRO is a national league featuring a regional competition model to build natural rivalries and reduce travel-related costs. The U.S. Soccer Federation-affiliated league benefits from the leadership of the dedicated and experienced professional staff at USL’s Tampa headquarters as well as the developmental support of USL’s proven and integrated system of leagues.

USL PRO will consist of as many as four geographic regions in 2011. Teams scheduled to compete in USL PRO in 2011 will be announced in the coming weeks.

NASL Concludes Successful AGM and Finalizes USSF Application

The North American Soccer League (“NASL”) recently concluded its 2010 Annual General Meeting held in Miami, Florida on November 7th and 8th. The meeting was highlighted by the approval of two additional teams for the 2011 season - the NSC Minnesota Stars and the Atlanta Silverbacks - and their inclusion in the application to the United States Soccer Federation for sanctioning as a Division II league. The completed application, which was originally submitted with six teams on September 28, 2010, was submitted to the Federation immediately following the conclusion of the meeting.


The application also includes San Antonio (which will commence play in 2012) and an additional team to be announced (which will commence play in 2013). The NASL is looking forward to favorable consideration of the application by the Board of Directors of the USSF at its meeting on November 21 in Toronto, Canada.

“This is an exciting time for the NASL as it nears the finish line in its two year quest for second division sanctioning from the USSF. We were encouraged by fans to return second division soccer to Atlanta after a two season hiatus and are thrilled that over twenty years of continuous professional play in Minnesota will continue in 2011 and beyond ” said Aaron Davidson CEO of the NASL.

Club owners and general managers will continue working on developing the schedule for the 2011 season over the coming weeks. The NASL plans to release the opening weekend schedule of games later this month.

FCTB Exercises Options On Four Players


FC Tampa Bay has kept four additional players from the 2010 squad under contract. The club elected to exercise contract options on forward Aaron King and midfielders Mozzi Gyorio, Long Tan and Jonny Steele. Steele’s option was picked up back in August due to the structure of his contract.


Tan had been training with the Vancouver Whitecaps in its MLS camp as a result of the July 2010 trade between Vancouver and Tampa Bay, which brought Ricardo Sanchez and Jonny Steele to Tampa Bay. Steele was in training recently at Hearts, currently third place in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League of Scotland, and MK Dons of League One in England.


FC Tampa Bay also confirmed that the club has declined its option to keep defenders Gordon Kljestan and Joe Donoho and midfielder Kwame Adjeman-Pamboe. The club also holds options for next season on defender Graham Tatters and midfielder Stanley Nyazamba but has not made a decision in regards to the two players yet.


In October, FC Tampa Bay declined its 2011 contract option on Ricardo Sanchez but the club has made Sanchez a new long-term offer and continues negotiations with Sanchez.


Quick 2010 Stats on Players:
•Gyorio played in 18 matches for FCTB, including nine starts with two goals and two assists in his first year as a professional.
•King ended the 2010 season as FCTB’s leading goal scorer and third in USSF D-2 Pro League with 12 goals. King played in 28 of the 30 matches with 12 starts, playing in 1,196 minutes.
•Steele joined FCTB in July 2010 after a trade from Vancouver Whitecaps FC. Steele started in nine of the 10 matches played, scoring one goal and assisting in three.
•Tan played in 25 of FCTB’s 30 matches this season. Tan was ranked fourth on the squad with eight points after scoring three goals and two assists.

Crystal Palace Baltimore to Sit Out 2011 Season

Crystal Palace Baltimore announced today that they will not be fielding a team in the North American Soccer League (NASL) during the 2011 season in order to restructure with an intended re-launch for the 2012 NASL season. The re-launch will include a complete re-branding of the club to coincide with opening a soccer facility in downtown Baltimore.

In addition, the club announced that it is ending its four year relationship with Crystal Palace FC of England’s Championship Division. Crystal Palace Baltimore was the first trans-Atlantic partnership of its kind in North America but the relationship between the clubs could not survive the financial struggles that resulted in Crystal Palace FC entering administration in England.


The club is currently working with the City of Baltimore to secure a venue for 2012 and beyond. “We want to be downtown and believe doing so will allow us to better connect to our fans and the City” said Pete Medd, part-owner and President of Crystal Palace Baltimore. “We would like to thank our loyal fans who have stuck with us despite not having a place to call home and we are committed to giving them what they deserve and what all of our future fans in Baltimore deserve; a venue that honors their loyalty and commitment to the club.”

FC Edmonton Names New Head Coach


FC Edmonton is pleased to announce the signing of its new Head Coach, Harry Sinkgraven. Sinkgraven comes highly recommended by former FC Edmonton coaches Dwight Lodeweges and Hans Schrijver.

“When Dwight and Hans first told us about Harry, we felt like he would be the perfect coach to pick up where the two left off,” said General Manager Mel Kowalchuk. “Harry has gone through the same Dutch coaching program as Hans and even has experience working with both Dwight and Hans back in Holland. We’re happy to get him signed and expect the transition to be almost seamless.”
