WESTPORT, Conn. (AP) The Major Indoor Soccer League has shut down after seven seasons and is considering restructuring.
The league, which had been in operation since the 2001-02 season and had nine teams in the 2007-08 season, ceased operation last weekend. That came a few days after commissioner Steve Ryan resigned.
Former league chairman John Hantz, owner of the Detroit Ignition, said Monday that the league is considering restructuring that would allow long-term growth and expansion.
In addition to Detroit, the league had teams this season in Baltimore, Chicago, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Newark, N.J., Orlando, Fla., Stockton, Calif., and Monterrey, Mexico.
