LAS VEGAS STRIKERS OPT OUT OF COMPETITION
After providing the Las Vegas Valley with affordable, quality, family entertainment for 4 consecutive years (2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006), the Las Vegas Strikers managing partners has made the difficult decision to forgo participation in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) indefinitely. “It was a real difficult decision for us,” said Strikers General Manager Steve Lazarus, “but unfortunately we have not been able to resolve issues facing the organization.
Although the Strikers will no longer be able to participate in the National Premier Soccer League, its supporters can still catch its members in action locally with the Tyneside United Soccer Club. The Tyneside United Soccer Club is an amateur soccer team, based in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, and is arguably the most successful soccer club in Nevada. Tyneside first got its start competing in the Las Vegas Premier Soccer League and were the reigning champions, winning the Premier League Title six (6) consecutive years in a row. In 2002, they became the first Nevada club to win the USASA Region IV National Cup Championship, and they represented the state at the National Finals in Oakford, Pennsylvania. In 2003, its members established the semi-professional team, the Las Vegas Strikers, who competed in the National Premier Soccer League in 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006.
Tyneside United is now a member of the Las Vegas Major Soccer League, which is affiliated with the United States Amateur Soccer Association (USASA). The league has been established in the Las Vegas community for over over two decades and the level of competition continues to grow each year. The league is comprised of some of the best local amateur men's club teams in Nevada and compete weekly from September to May.
The goal of the organization is to provide the Las Vegas area with a display of quality soccer at the highest level, while at the same time showcasing their local talent and providing an opportunity for that talent to advance through the U.S. soccer system. This past year the club received radio coverage on the local AM Station affiliates, plus newspaper coverage both at home and on the road. Tyneside United hopes to continue its success and establish a reputation for the club.
