AISL Announces Kick Start 08 Date, 2008-09 Season Theme
This afternoon, American Indoor Soccer League president/CEO Paul Lapointe announced that the league will start its sixth season of play on Saturday night, December 6th, with the leagues annual Kick Start opening weekend.
Lapointe also announced that the leagues schedule and roster of teams for the 2008-09 campaign will be announced at 4PM on Monday, September 8th.
Although we are announcing our schedule later than we had anticipated, we feel that this will give us more time to develop a relationship with the teams in the former Major Indoor Soccer League, with the potential of some inter-league play once they finalize their league alignment and business model, Lapointe said.
In addition, today the AISL unveiled its theme for the 2008-09 season, Our Time is Now. The new theme features a red, white, and blue logo, and was developed by Rich Paschette, league director of operations.
This summer has been the most tumultuous in the thirty-year history of the game of professional indoor soccer, said Paschette. A few weeks ago, I had bounced a few ideas for a theme around with some of my colleagues in the league. However, after contemplating over the issues that the game as a whole has had over the past few months, I felt that it was time for the AISL to make a stand and show that we want to be a player in the pro soccer world, and Our Time is Now punctuates that.[/quote]
Milwaukee, NJ, Detroit and Chicago are joining the new XSL. This is old news? Anyone who reads this site or looked at the league website would know this.
