[NASL] A year after winning the inaugural NASL title as the No. 6 seeds, the Minnesota Stars are at it again. They won their first playoff game as the No. 6 seeds and begin their semifinal series with the regular-season champion San Antonio Scorpions. But the Stars have more than their title defense on their minds.
They have until Oct. 27 to find owners if they are to remain in the league in 2013 when the New York Cosmos will join.
"With the New York Cosmos coming in next year, it puts us in jeopardy," Stars CEO Djorn Buchholz told the St. Paul Pioneer-Press.
The Stars finished sixth in the eight-team league in attendance with an average of 2,796 in 2012.
