DEVELOPING: NPSL Commissioner Responds To Pensacola City Situation (Kinda)

((HT: Michael Hitchock's Twitter))

Although not to direct question, the Commissioner of the NPSL has responded in a series of Tweets to the situation in Pensacola

Dear @NPSLSoccer fans: No one is more frustrated with the PCFC situation than me. With all the positive momentum for the NPSL right now 1/2

The owner of PCFC has let down the NPSL, the South East members & most importantly his players. We are getting all the info & addressing 2/2

The @NPSLSoccer is a not-for-profit corporation whose mission it to grow the sport of soccer in US in a sustainable way. Run by the members.

Consistent with the NPSL structure & philosophy, South East conference members will work together with NPSL on PCFC issue. Thx for support!

1/2 Official Statement: @NPSLSoccer is extremely disappointed to hear that Pensacola City FC has decided to cease operations immediately...

2/2 Statement: League remains committed to the Pensacola soccer community and looks forward to working with fans & supporters in the future.

OSG Sports has asked the Commissioner about the 7 games on the schedule that PCFC were to play and how the schedule is reconfigured...

And, in an amazingly similar to Tweet number 4 above, he replied:

South East Conference members are working with NPSL on PCFC issue. Consistent with NPSL structure

More when we know more... and, maybe, more details...
