Nosara’s Poor Infrastructure Hinders Finca Austria FC's Opportunity to Compete in Soccer’s Second Division

By Marvin Castillo

The underdevelopment of infrastructure that affects Nosara, as well as a lack of sponsors, have caused the Finca Austria soccer team's achievements to be thrown away.

As soon as the Linafa tournament was over, giving the Nosara team the longed for ticket to play in the National Soccer League’s second division, team leaders were forced to face several obstacles in order to go on.

The first obstacle is that there is no soccer field in Nosara that meets the minimum requirements established by national soccer authorities. The second is the terrible condition of the main road, and finally, they were unable to find the much needed sponsorship from local businesses. It is quite expensive to run a soccer team in that category, especially because they have to travel around the country for several months.

The most admirable thing about the team’s experience is that they proved that joining strength and talent can take you very far.  


The team’s owner, Michael Von Musyen, motivated a group of friends within the community and, with the support of several companies, they formed a team that surprised everyone by winning the coveted nationwide title. It was quite an experience to see all of Nosara cheering and supporting these players, who in turn obtained great and unexpected achievements.

Little is known about the future of the Finca Austria soccer team. We’ve learned that Liga Deportiva Alajuelense rented the franchise for three years in order to retain the acquired right. Von Musyen’s intentions of retaking control of the team once he returns from Austria have also been mentioned.
