NSC Minnesota Stars Soccer Team to Name First Player Today
The NSC Stars will issue a press release today at 11:00 am announcing their very first player signing. The team will also post a video interview on the team’s website www.nscminnesota.org.
While I’m excited for the first signing and I appreciate the forewarning on the release, I’m not sure why the team continues to make big announcements on Fridays, the worst day of the week for press releases. It’s widely understood that Mondays are the best days and often times Friday press releases and the excitement that goes with them gets lost into Friday afternoons and the weekend. We will chalk it up to growing pains for now, but lets hope for more Monday and Wednesday releases in the future.
IMS will also have a story immediately following the release.
NSC also announced the game times of their home games yesterday. When the original schedule was released this week, USSF made a statement in their release that said each individual team would be announcing their game times in the near future. The NSC Stars will start all games at 7 pm except the July 4th game, which will have a 7:30pm start. You can find the schedule here. Team general manager Kris Bjerkness told IMS yesterday that the team was concerned with consistency of game times therefore going with a general 7 pm start.
Vote for Your Favorite Jersey Color!
By the way, if you’ve not seen it or received an email from the NSC, they are having a contest to see what color the team’s kits should be. You can go here and vote for the your favorite color. I have to admit, I sort of like the Sunshine. It’s unique and it sort of reminds me of the Swedish National team colors, and I’m not even Swedish.
