About Turf and Boards

The Turf and Boards will cover the indoor game with a major focus on the MASL, M2, PASL, WISL, international and amateur.


About our Publisher

Sydney Nusinov was first introduced to the indoor game in 1982 at age eight and it was love at first sight. A long-time fan of his local Baltimore Blast, Sydney started an MISL ‘zine called Goal Kick Blast in high school. Sydney transitioned into the administrative side when he created the first website for the CISL’s Washington Warthogs in 1996. That led to a number of writing gigs that culminated in a move out west to serve as the Director of Media Relations for the Utah Freezz. From 2009 to 2015, Sydney served in the same position for both the Professional Arena Soccer League and the Premier Arena Soccer League, as well as the Major Arena Soccer League. During that time, Sydney served on the PASL’s rules committee and helped develop that league’s logo as well as the MASL’s first game ball. In 2011, Sydney founded the Indoor Soccer Hall of Fame. In addition to launching Turf and Boards in 2017, Sydney has worked for the Cedar Rapids Rampage, Orlando SeaWolves, and the US National Arena Soccer Team, and is co-admin of Facebook’s MASL Off the Wall fan group.
