NEW ENGLAND

National Independent Soccer Assocation

New England - the cradle of liberty. It’s where our first American revolution took hold. Strong, proud, & independent, it embodies many of the best things about this league. It is a fitting place to lay our foundation.

As one of the thirteen original colonies, Connecticut has always been on the leading edge of history. When it comes to the game, she’s no different. One of the smallest states in the union, it’s also one of the best soccer markets in America. A fierce supporter of our National teams, it’s the home of one of the largest American Outlaw chapters in the world. Young, prosperous & diverse, it’s a place where more than 120,000 youths are being raised in the game. And while it’s a top thirty media market, it’s one of the top ten when the game comes on.

From Salisbury to Stonington, it’s 3.5 million people united by the game. And NISA is proud to call it home.

PHILADELPHIA

National Independent Soccer Assocation

They’ve been playing since 1881 in the City of Brotherly Love. It’s where they founded the first professional soccer leagues in America back in 1894. Three years later, they brought home their first national championship. By 1924, when our first Olympic Soccer Team took the field, fully half the squad were Philadelphians.

It is the home of American soccer history. It’s the birthplace of our traditions. It’s the Fever, the Atoms, the Fury and the Charge. It’s Bob Rigby bringing soccer to the cover of Sports Illustrated. It’s the Sons of Ben. It’s the International Unity Cup.

It’s a city in love with the game - six million people, young, diverse and thriving. And NISA is proud to call it home.
