Dayton, November 21 2013 – The Dayton Dutch Lions FC and several staff members have been nominated for seven USL awards for the 2013 season.

The great seasons of both the Men’s Professional team – a winning record and qualifying for the playoffs for the first time since they joined in 2011 – and the Women’s team – winning the Regular Season Conference Championship – puts the club in the spotlight.

Recently former 2013 Head Coach Patrick Bal of the Men’s team and Sid van Druenen of the Women’s team were also nominated for Coach of the Year in USL PRO and the W-League.


President Mike Mossel commented on the nominations: “it is good to see so many nominations. It shows we are being recognized and that we are on the right track as an organization. Our plan with our Men’s and Women’s team was to improve a little bit every year off and on the field, but we made a big jump this year and are looking for another one next year. I am also pleased that several individuals are nominated but they could not have done the job without their colleagues.”
