[NASL 2014 COUNTDOWN] The NASL's Atlanta Silverbacks have added Henry and John Hardin, brothers who run SCI Companies specializing in human resource outsourcing, as part of its new ownership group along with longtime chairman Boris Jerkunica and longtime vice chairman John Latham.

Since joining the NASL in 2011, the Silverbacks have been owned and operated by Traffic Sports, along with Jerkunica and Latham, who each held minority interests. Traffic is also the owner of the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers and Carolina RailHawks and sought to find local ownership in Atlanta.
 
"The introduction of a new local ownership group is tremendously exciting for both the Atlanta Silverbacks organization and the local soccer community as a whole," Jerkunica said. "Finding local ownership has been a long-term goal of ours. I couldn't feel more honored to be a part of such a passionate and committed group of investors, which we'll be actively looking to add to in the future."

ROWDIES SIGN WAGNER. The Tampa Bay Rowdies signed left back Blake Wagner to a two-year contract, plus a club option for a third year. He played two seasons with the San Antonio Scorpions after stints with FC Dallas, Real Salt Lake and Vancouver in MLS over six seasons. He was a member of the 1995 U.S. Under-17 World Cup World Cup team.
