NSL Appoint Boris Vukovic to Executive Board

The National Soccer League appointed Boris Vukovic as the newest member of its Executive Board. Boris will occupy one of the three Board Member positions. Having served the League as a referee and referee assignor, Boris is well suited to contribute to the League's growth.


In order to make room in the Board's structure, NSL President Ante Loncar appointed George Gorecki to take over the vacant Secretary position.

Warta U-23s Tournament of Champions Winners

Adria advance to State Cup final, Gazelle fall in semis

RWB Adria outlasted AAC Eagles (Metropolitan Soccer League) in a penalty shootout to reach the championship match of the Illinois State Cup. The teams were knotted at 1:1 and Adria were more accurate from the penalty spot.


Gazelle SC, however, failed to reach the final to make it an all-NSL affair. They dropped a tightly fought 2:1 decision to Morelia (CLASA).


The final will be played on Saturday, July 20, at Wheeling HS, 900 S Elmhurst Rd in Wheeling. Kickoff is at 7.00 PM.

RWB Adria - Region 2 Champions!
