That is probably a few years off. I am sure there will be lawsuits and shenanigans that will hold that process off.

Out of curiosity, what will be "Xtreme" about it?
Never make anyone a priority that makes you an option.

National Indoor Soccer League Will Begin Play In November

NATIONAL INDOOR SOCCER LEAGUE WILL BEGIN PLAY IN NOVEMBER

Five Teams Will Be Part of the Inaugural NISL Season




September 9, 2008 – The National Indoor Soccer League, the newest incarnation of indoor soccer in North America, has been created and will begin the 2008-09 season in mid-November. The NISL was formed after the Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) dissolved in May and includes four former MISL teams. The NISL will operate under a reformed business model that transitions away from the MISL’s single-entity structure and provides greater efficiencies that will allow for long-term growth and expansion of the sport.


The NISL will consist of five member clubs including the Baltimore Blast, La Raza de Monterrey, Orlando Sharks, Philadelphia KiXX (all of the former MISL) and the Rockford (Illinois) Rampage (the 2007-08 American Indoor Soccer League champions). With the Baltimore Blast and the Philadelphia KiXX, the NISL will feature two of the most successful former MISL teams. Baltimore defeated Monterrey to win the 2008 MISL Championship and the Blast and KiXX combined to win six of the last seven titles. In addition to the teams’ on-field successes, Baltimore and Philadelphia have led the MISL in attendance each of the last four seasons.

Important Information:

Each NISL team will play an 18-game schedule (nine home games/nine away games) beginning in mid-November and concluding the first weekend in April.

The complete 2008-09 schedule and playoff format will be released in late September.

The NISL will use the same rules as the MISL which featured a multiple-point scoring system, four 15-minute quarters and unlimited substitutions.

The League has formed a working relationship with the United Soccer Leagues (USL) and will become a member of the United States Soccer Federation (USSF).

Anyone come across a league website or logo? I assume the Baltimore press conference is still ongoing or just got over.
