The Scouting Report
On December 31, the Milwaukee Wave boot 2012 to the sideline while taking on the Wichita Wings in a New Year’s Eve showdown. Behind a stifling defense led by goalie Nick Vorberg—whose 6.38 goals allowed per game sits as second best in the league—the Wave have coasted to a 4–2 record thus far. In those six games, forward Luan Oliveira leads the club with 12 points, and Jonathan Greenfield adds his own shot of offense from the defensive side with 11 points.
The longest running professional soccer franchise in the United States, the Milwaukee Wave debuted in 1984 as one of the six charter members of the American Indoor Soccer Association. Now, nearly three decades later, and as part of the Major Indoor Soccer League, the club builds upon a history that already includes six league championships–most notably, back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012.
Off the field, the Wave's positive impact ripples into the community through an educational program, Making Waves, which sends players to more than 70 schools annually to discuss why healthy habits are good and why mistaking a referee for a zebra could be bad. The club maintains those community-inspired good vibes during its home games at U.S. Cellular Arena, where frequent promotions and mascot Brad Beach keep fans of all ages entertained.
