I was excited to hear the news last week that my former UFL colleague Bill Peterson was named Commissioner of the NASL.
Bill was the architect of much of what the UFL did right in year two. We worked together, along with several other talented colleagues, to launch some of the following:
- UFL season ticket holders receiving on field access
- Fan clubs and included perks
- Fan access to practices and training camps
- Widespread Twitter usage
He was constantly pushing us to do more, to be more aggressive, and to take chances.
“The roots of the NASL triggered a soccer explosion in North American in the 1970s and I am delighted to be leading this new chapter as we take the league and its teams forward into an exciting future.” - BP
