USL/TOA Situation

October 24th, 2009 by gward

A spokesman for U.S. Soccer declined to comment on the situation surrounding the USL and a possible TOA breakaway league.  Apparently the federation was holding meetings with the two groups, hoping to come to an amicable agreement.  There is not much information out there regarding this issue. 

However, several of our sources believe that there should be some resolution by November 20th.   

We were told by one TOA member that Fleischman-Hilliard (St. Louis) has been hired by the association to handle their public relations and marketing needs.  We were also told that only one release had been published since NuRock acquired the league.

“Major League Soccer has had conversations with TOA clubs (including the Vancouver Whitecaps) but no arrangement is on the table.”
