Milwaukee Torrent Become Full Members of the NPSL
Milwaukee Torrent will become full members of the NPSL for the 2017 season after competing in a provisional conference last season. The Torrent will call Hart Park home next season, as they come off a 6-0 record in league play and an overall record of 11-1-2 in all competitions.
NPSL Soccer News: The National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) has announced that the Milwaukee Torrent have officially become full members of the league after playing in a provisional conference last campaign. Milwaukee will again compete in the league’s Midwest Region during the 2017 season.
“Congratulations to Andi Davi and the entire Milwaukee Torrent organization as they’ve moved to become full members of the National Premier Soccer League,” NPSL Chairman Joe Barone said. “We welcome Milwaukee Torrent’s contributions as we continue to grow the NPSL and the game in Wisconsin and the surrounding region.”
The Torrent finished the 2016 season with a 6-0 record in league play and an overall record of 11-1-2 in all competitions. Captain James Weber led the club with 12 goals and nine assists.
“We couldn’t be more proud of our inaugural season,” Milwaukee Torrent owner Andi Davi added. “It was our first year; we sold over 500 season tickets and won our conference. Every home game was a highlight.”
The Torrent will play its home matches at Hart Park, a 4,000-seat facility, next campaign. Hart Park is located near many bars and restaurants, which Davi hopes will give their fans and guests an even better experience.
“We want to attract more people to our home games,” said Davi. “The goal is to have at our games a four digit number in attendance and of course we want to win our conference again.”
Davi gave much credit to the club’s two supporters’ groups, the Flood and the Milwaukee Barons. He praised their passion and involvement with the club and the NPSL. The Torrent aims to have four-figure attendance at every home match in 2017, in addition to winning their conference for a second time.
“It’s great to be a member of the NPSL, one of the biggest leagues in the U.S.,” Davi added. “You can compete on a nationwide level inside the league without the need of joining one of the many smaller regional leagues. Being a part of a league that has existed since 2003 makes us proud and shows us that we did things right here in Milwaukee.”
