The NMIFA Co-ed Soccer Summer League kicks off tonight for a summer full of action. The first game is tonight at 5:15pm at the CPA Airport Field.
The summer league lasts for eight weeks, with games played on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons. Each team will play one game per week.
Games will start at 5:15pm on game days and will consist of two 35-minute halves with five-minute halftimes.
Players in the co-ed league hail from the NMIFA Men's, Women's, and Youth Leagues. Some of the players from the Men's and Women's National Teams also play.
Brad Ruszala, starting forward for the CNMI Men in this year's annual Marianas Cup, looks forward to competing against his counterpart on the CNMI Women's Team, Brenda Schultz.
“Last year's co-ed season was a great opportunity to go out and stretch my legs once a week and I'm really looking forward to winning my first co-ed game. Maybe I'll have more luck this year”.
Teams were picked last night, but it is not too late to play. The registration form can be downloaded at http://nmifa.blogspot.com. Completed forms can be dropped off at the NMIFA office located on Beach Road in Garapan or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
