    Yes, it sounds like there are plans for ANOTHER professional indoor/arena soccer league to start up. The Arena Soccer League. Here are some tidbits:

    Chicago Sting - https://www.facebook.com/Chicago-Sting-100221905505902

    I did a search within this forum and couldn't find any other mention of this league so apologies if there is another thread regarding this league.

    As with anything, time will tell.

    The Chicago Sting logo reminds me of the Chicago Stingers that played in the old USISL days back in the 90's. Drew a few hundred fans per match. Cheap knock off of the original Sting team that I am sure few people will remember. The alphabet soup of Leagues continues.

    They want to play 36 games per season??? That’s crazy for a startup league!

    Why are both these startup leagues using the old NPSL ball? Is there some discount at Kendis?

    I think the Kendis balls were pretty cheap. They bounced high and my friend and I joked that when you put it down it would roll away because they were oblong.

    anyone who doesn't use the rocket red is an ignoramus anyway.

    The original MISL didn’t even use the rocket red ball during its last four seasons.

    That rocket red ball was iconic. I don’t know why the MISL stopped using it.

    I pretty much hated the NPSL (MPS and a big step down from the MISL) but I have to admit that star ball looks great in any logo.

    To me, the NPSL ball looked just like a cheap knock off of the NASL ball.

    They are both great designs. Better than 99 percent of any other balls used by American leagues.

    The rocket red ball from the MISL is also top notch, but really wouldn't work as an outdoor ball

    Tradition. Outdoor balls have been mostly white. Also visibility on a larger field wouldn't be great.

    Did you ever see the Premier League ball? It's not white any more. How is an orange ball how to see on a large field?

    I think the orange ball stands out a lot better on bright green fake grass than real grass.
