The Beginner’s Guide To NISA
N.I.S.A (National Independent Soccer Association)
Third tier Professional soccer league in the USA. And it under USL championship but next to USL league 1.
Currently Number of teams: 11 and increasing, hopefully to have 24 by the start of the next season.
Initially in 2017, to act as a feeder league to the North American Soccer League (NASL); however, the NASL backed out and everything was pushed back.
But in February of 2019 , NISA was approved by the US Soccer Federation to become a Professional league.
NISA plays a fall-to-spring season with a winter break; this will allow NISA clubs to fully participate in the international transfer market. Where players are usually released from other teams
Once fully populated, there is to be 24 teams in total. Including two conference teams of 12. East and west, with two divisions of 6 teams per conference.
Per Division =20 games
12 Conference Games
Total games: 32
Nisa teams will have a budget between 1.5 and 3 million dollars.
If you are a player and you want to join any team in NISA, you can easily go to their main website and submit your application for each team on the same page.
Have fun And I hope to see you all on the field.
On June 6, 2017, it was announced that the newly formed National Independent Soccer Association would begin to play in 2018 targeting an initial 8 to 10 teams, later revised to 8 to 12 teams. Initially, the league outlined plans to introduce a promotion/relegation system, once they reach their goal of 24 teams, the first in US professional soccer and in doing so act as a feeder league to the North American Soccer League (NASL); however, the NASL ceased operations prior to those plans being implemented.
On February 13, 2018, NISA co-founder Jack Cummins died suddenly. On May 17, 2018, NISA co-founder Peter Wilt left the NISA to help start up Forward Madison FC in Madison, Wisconsin in USL League One. A committee of club owners has been formed to elect new leadership within the organization.
On August 31, 2018, NISA filed an application with the United States Soccer Federation for sanctioning as a men’s professional league, playing at the third division. On February 16, 2019, NISA was provisionally sanctioned as a Division III league by the United States Soccer Federation. In May 2019, it was announced that clubs were not happy with the silence from the league and that Bob Watkins was no longer the President of NISA and that John Prutch had taken the helm as commissioner. During this same timeframe, the league’s start date was pushed back from August 2019 to a targeted September start date.
On June 10, 2019, it became known that both Miami FC and California United Strikers FC were approved at the recent board of governors meeting to join NISA, while the previously identified club in Central Florida would play in Baton Rouge, Louisiana instead of Daytona Beach, Florida. However, it was unclear whether either of the teams would start before the league’s September start date. On June 27, 2019 it was announced that Oakland Roots SC would have their inaugural season with the league in the spring season, rather than the previously announced NPSL Founders Cup. On August 15, 2019, the league officially announced the addition of Oakland Roots for the 2019 season and Chattanooga FC and Detroit City FC for early 2020.
The inaugural season began on August 31, 2019, with a 3–3 draw for Oakland Roots SC and California United Strikers FC in Oakland.
