Are you free this Sunday afternoon? If so, you should head on down to the Eastbay Sports Complex in Wausau at 6 p.m. to watch the championship soccer game between Wausau United and Merrill Lobos F.C.
The teams and game are through the Central Wisconsin Adult Soccer League, or CWASL. Formerly known as “Wausau Hispanic Soccer League” that has been operating in North Central Wisconsin since 2002, it has evolved from serving as a way to bring leisure time primarily to Latin American families, to a regular summer event where people from all over the world can enjoy viewing or playing the game of soccer.
Besides the fact that Merrill will be competing in this championship, Merrill Mayor Bialecki has a friendly wager going on with Wausau Mayor Robert B. Mielke. The losing team’s mayor has to by the winning team’s mayor dinner from the Mexican restaurant of his choice. Bialecki said that if Merrill won, Mielke will pay for dinner at Merrill’s very own Los Mezcales restaurant.
The league typically runs from May through September, and games are played on Sundays at the Eastbay Sports Complex located in Wausau, Wisconsin. There are different amounts of teams that participate in the league each year, coming from several surrounding cities including Antigo, Merrill, Mosinee, Plainfield, Abbotsford, Bancroft, Mattoon and Wausau.
