With the NASL’s future in the air, it seems like a few influential executives are ready to broker a deal.
According to Big Apple Soccer, U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati, USL president Jake Edwards and USL CEO Alec Papadakis were at the NASL board meeting in Atlanta.
It’s unknown as to why the three men were at the meeting, but there are several possibilities. It could involve NASL teams joining the USL or composing a deal between the two leagues.
The NASL is set to lose three clubs before the 2017 season as Minnesota United is set to join MLS, plus the Ottawa Fury and Tampa Bay Rowdies have already confirmed that they will be playing in the USL next year.
