MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Wave indoor soccer team will stay in downtown Milwaukee.
Wave representatives say the team has signed a two-year contract with the Wisconsin Center District to continue to play at the U.S. Cellular Arena, which has been home to the Wave for the past 10 years.
Goalkeeper Nick Vorberg says the arena provides a great atmosphere for the team and allows the fans to get close to the action.
Coach Keith Tozer says the Wave has some great memories at Cellular Arena, including championships. Tozer says the arena is considered the best playing field in the Major Indoor Soccer League.
The Milwaukee Wave is the longest running soccer franchise in North America and has earned six World Championships.
