2015 WPSL NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP MVP AWARDS

Jerry Zanelli with 2015 WPSL National Champions Chicago Red Stars Reserves

July 29, 2015

Commissioner names MVPs from both teams

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – WPSL Commissioner Jerry Zanelli has decided to forgo choosing just one MVP from the WPSL Championship final and instead has nominated all the players from both the Chicago Red Stars Reserves and SoCal FC.

“Both teams played extremely well,” Commissioner Zanelli said. “The final featured two teams that were well-coached with great players, and every position was being played as it should. They were all outstanding and I think this is the only fair way to do it.”

The WPSL has long been recognized as an innovative league, operating outside the norms of many other national soccer leagues. One example is the All-Star selection process, where each team in the various divisions are given the opportunity to nominate up to six players, depending on their final position on the division table.

Zanelli also cited the typical process of nominating either strikers or keepers as the MVP one of the mains reasons he decided to go a different direction. In a sport where the backline and the midfield play a huge role in the overall result, he says he felt those players are often ignored in traditional MVP selections.

“All of these players got here through hard work and dedication,” Zanelli continued. “They gave up their summer vacation to train hard and play towards the national championship, and the result is that they secured a spot at the WPSL National Championship final. They deserve to be praised.”

The commissioner also would like to congratulate Oklahoma City FC for hosting an outstanding championship weekend, which included the WPSL U-20 tournament, and would like to thank everyone involved in making it a successful weekend.
