"The National Soccer Hall of Fame class for 2014 will certainly be a stellar one," said Hank Steinbrecher, Chairman of the Hall of Fame's Board of Directors. "Each and every one on the ballot is more than deserving of the ultimate recognition of being elected into the Hall. I am sure that this year the voters will be hard pressed to select just one candidate. We are proud of all of the individuals who are on the ballot and thank them for their outstanding service to the beautiful game."

Of the 27 players on the Player ballot, Raul Diaz Arce, Marco Etcheverry, Zoran Karic, Victor Nogueira and Cindy Parlow Cone are in their final year of eligibility.

    When outdoor soccer was struggling, indoor soccer picked up the slack with the NASL and MISL during the 80s and early 90s. Some of those players could hold their own with the best that we have on our fields today. It's a shame that the indoor game seems to carry a stigma. There are two people in the Hall who were awesome in indoor and carried their success to the outdoor game: Ron Newman, coach of the San Diego Sockers and the outdoor Kansas City Wiz and Preki...a phenomenal goal scorer indoors and out and then coach for two MLS teams. On the candidates for this year's Hall award are Victor Nogueira. Incredible goalie! Zoran Karic, an awesome forward! And on the Veteran Ballot are Steve ("The Lord of All Indoors"), Tatu, and Kevin Crow. Kevin was an outstanding defensive player for the award-winning Sockers, one of the few US-born citizens to successfully have a career in the indoor leagues. He also played on the USMNT in the Summer Olympics of 1984 and 1988 and he played in World Cup qualifying games over the same period. And then the ones who haven't but should have been nominated: Branko Segota, Waad Hirmez, Paul Wright, Kaz Dayna...
