About Us

The Omaha International Soccer League (OISL) Tournament hosted by MyDestinati, is a recreational tournament modeled on the principle of good sportsmanship that started in 2014. The formation of OISL began with a vision to bring local players from diverse backgrounds together as they represent their nation, engaging in fellowship and community building through the global game of soccer.

Mission
To promote unity, diversity and empower communities through the beautiful game of soccer.

Vision
To unite communities.

Values
Integrity
Exhibit integrity everywhere we go and in everything we do.

Leadership
We cultivate the potential of everyone to be a leader and positively influence those around them.

Respect
Every person brings unique skills and strengths to their role in this organization and in the communities we serve.  We strive for an environment where everyone learns, grows, and enriches those around them. We value our people, encourage their development and reward their performance.

Accountability
We are accountable to our donors, our supporters, and to one another to deliver measurable outcomes through the responsible use of resources.

Partnership
We do not act alone, rather our strength is found in being in relationship with others. We seek to strengthen the community through partnerships with local organizations.

Excellence
OISL is built on love, trust, integrity and accountability to ensure organizational excellence; part of the culture and expectation that we create, which empowers people. What initially starts on the soccer field can translate into positive impact in academia, the workforce and the community.

We were honored to have Douglas County Treasurer John Ewing Jr. lead opening ceremonies while the OISL team captains honored P.A.C.E (Police Athletics for Community Engagement) for their work in the community in preventing “at risk”, inner-city children from becoming involved in gangs, crime and drug use.

We also had a special moment honoring the late police officer Kerrie Orozco, coach at the local Boys and Girls Club, Girl Scout leader and Special Olympics volunteer who was killed a day before maternity leave with a special U.S.A jersey.

Congratulations to the indomitable Cameroon our back to back winners of the coveted OISL Trophy.
