Bill 49-17

A Resolution In Support of an MSA Football Club

PURPOSE: To announce support for the creation of an official MSA RecSports Football (Soccer) Club to be called MSA United F.C.

WHEREAS, soccer—most notably dubbed football around the world—is a “beautiful game” of teamwork that has, and continues to transcend languages, nationalities, and politics; AND

WHEREAS, this “beautiful game” is advocated by the Student Recreation Center through the offering of recreational soccer leagues for male, female, and co-ed teams; AND

WHEREAS, the members of the Senate and MSA would be able to take part in a team building experience that is unmatched by any other, allowing them to look past a person’s politics to their character and inner being; AND

WHEREAS, this experience will help to foster a sense of togetherness among members of the Senate and MSA through both player participation and the non-playing members who show up to games in support of the team.

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE MISSOURI STUDENTS ASSOCIATION SENATE that the creation of the football club entitled “MSA United F.C.” is supported to provide the aforementioned team building experience.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that all those within the three MSA branches who are interested in playing be encouraged to do so and that those who don’t wish to play are encouraged to go out and support the team at their assigned matches.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that Josh Travis be designated as the contact for interested players for purpose of the creation of the team; the team Captain, as defined by Mizzou RecSports, shall be decided internally.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that MSA, through this resolution of support, does not commit to any monetary assistance for the Club.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that MSA, through this resolution of support, neither attains nor retains any authoritative power of any kind over the Club.

Respectfully Submitted,

Josh Travis, Operations Chairman

Paul Whiteside, Student Affairs Chairman

Evan Wood, Operations Vice-Chairman
