The Indoor Soccer Hall of Fame will announce its 2022 Class on Thursday.

The names of six inductees will be revealed from a list of 11 players.

The 11 finalists are Andy Chapman, Chico Borja, Michael King, Jan Goossens, Jorgen Kristensen, Sean Bowers, Paul Wright, David Doyle, Fred Grgurev, Paul Kitson and Jean Willrich.

Grgurev is a former member of the Rochester Lancers. He never played indoors with the North American Soccer League club, but he competed for the New York Arrows, which was stocked with many Lancers players.

The ISHOF previously announced that former Wichita Wing standout Borja, who died on January 28, 2021, would be one of the six inductees. Borja also performed for the New York Cosmos.

Founded in 2011, the ISHOF, will increase its membership at 40, which includes players, coaches, and administrators.

This will be the first new class of the ISHOF since 2019, when seven players and three coaches were inducted.

“The COVID-19 pandemic was very destructive certainly, but also very disruptive,” ISHOF founder Sydney Nusinov said in a statement. “After a long wait, I’m very excited to unveil the new members this Thursday.”

The mission of the Indoor Soccer Hall of Fame is to forge a common history for the unique sport of indoor/arena soccer, to celebrate its past, and to set the standard for future achievement. For more information, visit the Indoor Soccer Hall of Fame at http://www.indoorsoccerhall.com.
