MOST COMMENTED

[NPSL] The National Premier Soccer League has named Dr. Joseph Machnik as the national amateur league’s director of officials. Machnik oversaw officiating in MLS's offices for many years and has been a regular contributor on Fox Sports as a soccer analyst.

Machnik will work with local assignors to assign referees for all NPSL games, issue notices to members regarding cards and suspensions, oversee disputes being reviewed by the Discipline/Rules Committee, and review and update NPSL referee documents.

“In Joe Machnik, the NPSL, our teams, and our supporters are adding one of the country’s top soccer leaders to the league’s front office," said NPSL Commissioner Michael Hitchcock. "Joe brings a great deal of experience and expertise to the NPSL that will benefit the league on and of the field."

Machnik worked for MLS and SUM for 15 years and served as a FIFA and Concacaf match commissioner. He has been a college coach (LIU and New Haven), World Cup assistant coach (1990 U.S. team) and league commissioner (AISA). Since 1977, Machnik has been the president and director of the No.1 Soccer Camps.
