News in Brief: Minneapolis City SC joins NPSL, Draft Season, and more

by on 14 December 2016

Minneapolis City SC (and friends!) join the NPSL

On Wednesday afternoon, Minneapolis City SC announced that they’ll be a part of the NPSL for the 2017 season. Our own Kyle Eliason has the backstory, complete with info about a couple other Minnesota teams making the jump.

It’s draft season in MLS

Minnesota United is awash in drafts at the moment, and no, we’re not talking about sub-zero air seeping through the windows. The Loons took part in an expansion draft on Tuesday and now look forward to the waiver and re-entry draft. So far, so good it seems!

What’s going on with the NASL?

First, the good news. Pedro Heizer reports that the Fort Lauderdale Strikers have new ownership and were to begin talks with players on 12/14. The bad news? What was left of the NASL continues to fall apart, with reports that Jacksonville Armada have terminated all player contracts.

Detroit City FC, on a bike

Take that Portland and Minneapolis bike hipsters. Detroit Bikes now makes a Detroit City FC-themed bicycle. You know you’re jealous.
