MASL SET FOR 2016-2017 EXCITEMENT
KANSAS CITY (Oct. 28, 2016) – The 2016-2017 regular season Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) schedule launches tomorrow, October 29th with four games on the schedule. The Kansas City Comets host the Cedar Rapids Rampage and the Dallas Sidekicks host the El Paso Coyotes at 8:00 p.m. ET. Following that, the Tacoma Stars open their home schedule against Soles de Sonora at 9:00 p.m. ET and the San Diego Sockers host the Turlock Express at 10 p.m. ET.
The MASL has once again partnered with GoLive Sports to broadcast MASL games throughout the season. Fans can find links to each game on MASLSoccer.com, as well as on GoLiveSportsCast.com.
In another effort to further the fan experience, the MASL has added two members to the league’s communications staff, Jeff Husted and Manuel R. Medina.
MASL Commissioner Josh Schaub said, “Bringing on Jeff and Manuel broadens our ability to communicate with fans throughout North America. We look forward to them bringing our fans in depth written analysis and video content to bring new levels of engagement among our interested supporters. The future of the MASL is looking bright after these additions.”
Jeff Husted has been involved with arena soccer since helping to launch the Missouri Comets in 2010. Since then, he has worked with various outlets to cover arena soccer, Women’s World Cup and the National Women’s Soccer League.
Manuel R. Medina has been covering soccer for over a decade, with bylines from two World Cups, a Copa America, a Gold Cup and the Summer Olympics. He has spent the last few years providing communications for Atletico Baja and Xolos de Tijuana before that. Medina is excited to be working on spreading the MASL message with our expanding Spanish-speaking fan base.
The MASL was formed in 2014 by teams from the Professional Arena Soccer League and Major Indoor Soccer League. The league represents the highest level of professional arena soccer in the world, and features teams across North America, with teams playing coast-to-coast in the United States and Mexico.
