About the MISL

 

About The MISL
United Soccer Leagues acquired the Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) in May, 2011 and began operating North America’s most storied and tradition-rich professional indoor soccer league for the 2011-12 season. The MISL represents the top level of professional indoor soccer in North America and consists of seven franchises for 2013-14. The league roster includes franchises in Baltimore, Missouri, Milwaukee, Pennsylvania, Rochester, St. Louis and Syracuse.

The Game
MISL indoor soccer was developed to appeal to sports fans around the world. The fast-paced, fiercely competitive game is played on artificial turf on a hockey-rink-sized field surrounded by dasherboards and Plexiglas with eight-foot high by 14-foot wide goals receded into the end boards. Creative dribbling, pinpoint passing, acrobatic goalkeeping and rugged defensive play are all skills demonstrated by MISL players. A typical MISL game features end-to-end-action resulting in approximately 60 shots and 11 goals per game. Each game includes four 15-minute quarters and will feature multi-point scoring in which all goals scored will be worth two points, except those goals scored on shot attempts from on or beyond the 45-foot arc surrounding the goal, which will be worth three points. Other unique characteristics of the MISL include action-packed power plays and free substitution of players while play continues.

The Season
The 2013-14 regular season begins in November and concludes in March.
