The National Soccer League was founded by Milton Galvan in 2008, in Miami, Florida.
Mr. Galvan started his soccer career playing as a goalkeeper in his native Uruguay. In his early days he played for several professional teams, including the 2020 Uruguayan championship runner up Rentistas.
Mr. Galvan founded the Miami Tango Soccer Club in 1980. The last tournaments won by the Miami Tango before its dissolution were Florida State Champion, in 2004 and US Open Cup Florida Champion, in 2005.
In his Miami Tango days, as a manager and coach, Mr. Galvan observed the lack of federated leagues that were affordable to play in and accessible to all players that shared his passion for soccer.
He started by founding the Miami Soccer League in 2005 and expanding nationwide with the National Soccer League just three years later.
