[NASL] The North American Soccer League has approved Indianapolis as the Division II league's 12th team. The new team, which will join the NASL for the 2014 season, is owned by Ersal Ozdemir, chief executive officer of Keystone Group. Former Chicago Fire executive Peter Wilt was instrumental in getting the team off the ground and will be its president.

Indy Pro Soccer is in discussions to play its home games at Michael Carroll Stadium located on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI).

The NASL has operated with eight teams in 2011 and 2012. It will add the New York Cosmos for the second half of the 2013 season and Ottawa and Northern Virginia, as well as Indy Pro Soccer, in 2014.

“The NASL is experiencing tremendous growth and the addition of Indianapolis will contribute greatly to that positive aspect of our business over the next few years,” Bill Peterson, commissioner of the North American Soccer League, said in a statement. “We have all witnessed great sporting moments in Indianapolis over the years and in that same vein, the support for this team has been overwhelming. With the strong leadership of Ersal Ozdemir I expect this team to be an overwhelming success and a wonderful part of the sporting legacy in Indiana.”
