AC Syracuse Pulse forfeited its National Independent Soccer Association game at the Michigan Stars FC on Saturday.
Playing in its first season in the league, AC Syracuse has had financial issues, according to NISA.
The Stars were awarded three points for the forfeit.
“The league recently became aware of a financial issue with AC Syracuse Pulse ownership,” a league spokesman said. Since then, NISA has been working vigorously with the club and resolved the issue. In an effort to give the club time and space to stabilize, the club will not be traveling today to play Michigan Stars FC. The game will be treated as a forfeit, and the Stars will be awarded three points.”
AC Syracuse also will be issued an undisclosed fine by the league.
“AC Syracuse looks forward to hosting California United Strikers FC next Sunday, May 1,” a NISA spokesman said. “The league and its clubs apologize to the supporters of both organizations.”
