The 2013–14 Major Indoor Soccer League season is the third under the United Soccer Leagues banner, fifth under the MISL name, and the sixth season overall. Also it's the 35 season of professional Division 1 indoor soccer. The season began on November 15th and concluded on March 2nd. Each team played a 20-game schedule. [4]

News[edit]

On December 4 the MISL Board of Governors approved video review of three-point goals. The decision states: "Referees will be able to use the reviews to determine the position of the ball in relation to the 3-point arc when the ball was struck. Reviews will not be used to determine if the ball crossed the goal line." The first game the new system was available was the December 6 game between the Pennsylvania Roar and the Rochester Lancers.[5]
