Have a picture with Milan, please forward to
so it can be added to our collection.
On Friday, April 3, NEW United SC Coach Milan Misuta passed away after a long battle with cancer, surrounded by his friends. Milan loved soccer, coaching and just being at the soccer fields. He was often spotted at the complex even when he was not coaching or training. His presence on and off the field will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, Milan.
NEW United Soccer Club along with Milan’s local and statewide soccer family are planning a celebration of Milan's life, likely in late July or August.
This is what is planned thus far.
1. A celebration of Milan’s life involving a soccer game and picnic out at USA Youth fields hopefully including NEW United Soccer Club and the Bavarian Soccer Club from Milwaukee.
2. A Plaque on the NEW United Wall of Honor
3. Field at USA Complex to be named after him.
4. A NEW United Scholarship for players that need assistance and potentially coaches that are pursuing additional education.
Date and details will be forecoming when we are able to do so. If you would like to be involved with the memorial celebration, email firstname.lastname@example.org, include 'Team Milan' in the subject line.

Coach Milan is battling his second round of lung cancer and currently undergoing chemotherapy. He is not allowing his treatments to take him away from the beautiful game and spends time around the game and the kids as best he can.
All benefits collected will go to support Milan's incurring medical bills.
Come up and let's show our 'soccer community' support!
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the outpour of support during my cancer battle. I so enjoy being part of the NEW United community and this was something very unexpected but deeply appreciated. I am receiving treatments and doing well, even able to make it to the fields for short visits. I look forward to when I am able to be with the teams full-time and continue growing my friendships with the NEW United families.
