Igniting the Future of American Soccer: Join the Revolution with the National Soccer League™ (NSL)

A lifelong devotee of the beautiful game, Scott "Matchmaker" Michaels witnessed with dismay the commercialization sweeping through American professional soccer. For Scott, soccer is more than just a sport—it's a passion shared by billions, and he believes it should remain firmly rooted in the hearts of its fans.

Motivated by a desire to restore the essence of the game, Scott embarked on a mission to launch the National Soccer League (NSL). With a fervent commitment to empowering supporters and preserving the purity of soccer, Scott envisions the NSL as a beacon of fan-centricity in a landscape increasingly dominated by corporate interests. As the specter of the 2026 World Cup looms large, Scott is determined to reclaim control for the fans, ensuring that the spirit of soccer remains untainted.

Leveraging his experience as an entrepreneur and international soccer agent, Scott sought to establish the NSL as a platform to connect fans, team owners, and players in unprecedented ways. His goal is to create a stage where fans were the true stars, reviving original teams from American soccer's golden era to infuse new life into the sport. Understanding the need for innovation, Scott opted for a unique tour and licencing business model , hosting matches in winter and spring to enhance fan engagement and minimize commercial distractions.

The NSL emerges as a league driven by the people, reflecting Scott's commitment to democratizing soccer ownership and fostering a sense of community among supporters. However, his mission is ongoing, as he invites fans from diverse backgrounds to join him in shaping the future of American soccer. Together, they aspire to revolutionize the sport, ensuring that fans remain at the forefront and that America takes pride in its soccer legacy once more.

Soccer in America, despite global prominence, faces hurdles: mismanagement in the U.S. Soccer Federation, closure of 150 plus clubs since the '1990s, and MLS challenges with high costs and over commercialization. Foreign player dominance and limited domestic growth persist. MLS struggles for viewership despite market control. High costs create exclusivity, hindering accessibility. U.S. Soccer regulations stifle fan ownership and investment.

However, hope arises with the NSL, we believe in a new professional soccer ecosystem that transcends boundaries, fostering a culture of meritocracy competitive soccer. Every match is a battleground where talent and hard work reign supreme, pushing players and teams to strive for excellence. In our world, success is earned, not bought, and we're here to level the playing field.

The data is compelling: 27% of U.S. sports enthusiasts, 83 million people, show a keen interest in soccer. Compared to the global average of 40%, American soccer has remarkable growth potential. With 3.5 billion soccer fans worldwide, the U.S. has vast untapped potential. Yet, only 30 elite soccer clubs exist in North America, highlighting a significant gap between demand and supply. The future holds promise. We aim to bridge this gap, unlocking soccer's true potential in the United States.


The NSL distinguishes itself from traditional soccer leagues through a range of exclusive features. As the sole globally operating professional soccer league independently governed and tour-based, it prioritizes fan value. Our initial plan is to turn the existing league tour-based to grow the sport, an idea birthed by studies that show that tour-based models can optimize and amplify a non-core sport quicker than a city-based model. 

The NSL's innovative tour-based model simplifies team ownership complexities, drawing inspiration from successful tour-based leagues like UFC, PLL, U.S Open, UFL and PGA. By staging matches across various cities, NSL fosters inclusivity and excitement, aiming to revolutionize American soccer. Matches are strategically scheduled in winter and spring, enhancing attendance and ensuring ideal playing conditions. Embracing technology, NSL plans digital platforms, data analytics, and fan engagement technologies, aiming to create an immersive experience while avoiding direct competition with established leagues.

Soccer should be a sport for all, devoid of politics, activism, bullying or discrimination. That's why we're committed to creating a safe and inclusive environment where every fan feels welcome. With a zero-tolerance policy towards discrimination, the NSL is a beacon of integrity and respect in the world of sports.

The NSL isn't just another soccer league; it's a movement that empowers fans to become more than just spectators – to become true stakeholders in the game they love. Imagine the thrill of owning a piece of your favourite team, where your passion translates into tangible contributions to their success. That's the power of fan ownership, and it's at the heart of everything the NSL stands for.

Fans wield the power to drive change in the game. Globally, many independent fan-owned soccer clubs exemplify this strength, showcasing the collective impact of supporters. These clubs embody community spirit and grassroots involvement, emphasizing fans' crucial role in soccer.

As guardians of tradition and advocates for inclusivity, these clubs inspire pride and belonging among fans, highlighting the significance of fan engagement in shaping soccer's future.

The NSL aims to forge new opportunities for American talent. Currently, the chances for Americans to play top-level soccer in major leagues are nearly one in a million, mainly due to the industry's limited size and foreign player dominance. We've identified numerous American players with exceptional skills who have been overlooked by the current system. We advocate for talent assessment based solely on ability rather than socioeconomic status.

The league is keen on partnering with youth academies, scouting networks, and player development programs to create pathways for these players. By leveraging technology and hosting a national NSL showcase, funded by the league, we aim to uncover hidden talents within US soccer. With top-notch coaching, we're confident we can nurture these talents into elite players, raising the game's standards.

We're breaking down barriers to make soccer more accessible to everyone. From low-cost ticketing options to complimentary NSL tickets for underserved communities, we're ensuring that no fan is left behind. And with free NSL game broadcasts on YouTube and Facebook which has collectively over 5 billion monthly users as of 2024 , we're bringing the excitement of soccer to fans around the globe partnering with fans and creators.
