(St. Louis, Missouri) -- Major Arena Soccer League owners took action on several items in an effort to build upon a successful first season during the league’s recently completed meetings hosted by the St. Louis Ambush at Mercy Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri.
Owners decided to reorganize the leadership structure of the league, appointing a board of five members to oversee the league, while Kevin Milliken, the Commissioner of the inaugural season, has been moved to the league’s Vice President of Business Development and Jonathan Ramin will serve as Vice President of Operations. “Merging two leagues, especially in the short period of time it was done, is no easy task. All of us owners communicated the areas we felt needed to be addressed and we made some tough decisions as a group. This was time well spent”, said Mike Zimmerman, President of the newly appointed Board of Directors for the 2015-16 MASL Season. “The league is progressing forward and we look forward to a very bright future, but we must continue to sand down our rough edges just like any new business."
“We listened to the fans’ concerns about having two scoring systems, and decided immediately upon the need for a unified scoring system,” said Jonathan Ramin, VP of Operations for the MASL.
The league’s schedule and playoff format was also approved at the meeting. Each team will play a 20-game regular season schedule, with the top three teams in each division advancing to the post-season.
The league’s 20-game season will kickoff November 1, 2015 and completed by February 28, 2016 with Playoffs beginning March 1, 2016.
