Pro Soccer Coming to Lansing

By  | 

Lansing is getting a professional men's soccer team equal in size and ability roughly to the Lansing Lugnuts baseball team.

The National Premier Soccer League has awarded a franchise in its 60-team league to Lansing, owned by former WILX TV sports reporter Jeremy Sampson.

The web site soccerinlansing.com has all the details about a contest to name the franchise. A site for home games has not been selected yet nor has a head coach been chosen. The 16-game season begins next May.
