Great teams: 1987 Windsor Wheels

Before the start of the 1987 National Soccer League season Windsor Wheels hired Yugoslavian Mirko Bazic as their coach. He was a former coach of Borac Banja Luka in Yugoslavia. Bazic was hired on a two-year, $15,000 per year contract.

The club operated with a $150,000 budget. Windsor Wheels opened their NSL season by defeating Mississauga Lakers 4-0 on Sunday May 17. The game was watched by 500 fans at Windsor Stadium.

The roster included goalkeeper Rob Agostini; forwards Edson Dias and Marc Tirikian. Striker John Perciballi joined London Marconi in mid-July.

Windsor Wheels won the 1987 National Soccer League championship and the Canadian Championship.
