Washington, DC (Stone Sports Management LLC) - May 12, 2015
Stone Sports Management LLC ("SSM") is pleased to announce Goalkeeper Kristian Nicht's return to NASL's Indy Eleven.  The 33 year-old Goalkeeper re-signs with Indy Eleven after transferring to Major League Soccer's Montreal Impact and started in the CONCACAF Final Return Leg against Mexican powerhouse Club America.  Click HERE for Indy Eleven's official announcement and below taken from the Release:
"My short time in Montreal was a great experience, but it's an honor to return to some unfinished business here with Indy Eleven," said Nicht. "Ther response from the fans initially was honestly a bit overwhelming, so I'm incredibly happy to be back in Indianapolis and playing in front of the Brickyard Battalion and the best fans in the NASL."  A sample of the overwhelming fan response can be viewed HERE to read one perspective on Kristian's impact on Indy Eleven after the Impact transfer was announced. 
Nicht started Indy Eleven’s first four 2015 NASL Spring Season contests, registering an undefeated 1W-3D-0L record.  He currently places tied for 5thamong NASL goalkeepers with at least 100 minutes of action in 2015 in both goals against average (1.00) and saves (13).  His standout play in Indy Eleven’s 2-1 win at San Antonio on April 18 earned the German his first spot on the NASL Team of the Week this season (Spring Week 3).

"This has been such a whirlwind the last few months, especially for Kristian, and elated that he is able to return to Indy," said SSM's President and Players' Agent Justin B. Stone.  "Kristian was part of history playing in a Champions League Final and played well considering the unique situation.  The feedback has been positive and expect him to return to MLS in the future, but for now he is completely happy and focused on returning to Indy and helping the team meet its Playoff and Championship goals."

In 2014, Nicht started all 27 NASL regular season contests and both appearances in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup for Indy Eleven during its inaugural season.  His 397-minute shutout streak across last September and October set a new record for a goalkeeper during the modern era of the NASL.


“We are incredibly pleased to bring Kristian back into the Indy Eleven organization,” said Indy Eleven president and general manager Peter Wilt.  “The last couple of weeks provided Kristian with a unique opportunity, and we are glad to see him back wearing an Indy Eleven uniform.”

SSM would like to thank Indy Eleven for its dilligence securing Kristian's services so quickly after his Montreal Impact stint and wishes Kristian and the club well throughout the 2015 Spring and Fall seasons. Click HERE to see Indy Eleven's schedule.
