In 2009, Soccer Master acquired the top-rated online internet soccer retailer, as a sister company to Soccer Master. The NISL will be able to offer merchandise for its member teams to all fans world-wide through its online store. 

“We’re absolutely thrilled to partner with Soccer Master,” stated NISL Special Consultant, Brian Roth, who assisted in closing the partnership. “I’ve dealt with David and his staff at Soccer Master for many years on different levels, both individually and professionally with the KC Comets and St. Louis Ambush, and I’m very familiar with what they do and the hard work they put in, in order to be successful. I’m extremely confident our member teams will be in great hands with Soccer Master and we look forward to long-lasting relationship with them.”
