THE SIDELINES : U.S. Soccer League Envisioned

From Times Wire Services

The United States Soccer Federation wants to bring back a national professional outdoor league.

Federation President Alan Rothenberg announced Wednesday that a 16-member committee has been appointed to develop plans for an outdoor league.

The last nationwide professional league was the North American Soccer League, which folded in 1985. This year, the American Soccer League and Western Soccer League, which operate in several former NASL cities, operated as the American Professional Soccer League.
