Anton Nistl is a retired U.S. soccer goalkeeper. He was the 1989 ISAA Goalkeeper of the Year and spent three seasons in the Western Soccer Alliance and one in the American Professional Soccer League.


Nistl attended UCLA where he played on the men’s soccer team from 1986-1989. He was one in a long line of outstanding collegiate goalkeepers at UCLA that began with Tim Harris and David Vanole and continued with Brad Friedel, Kevin Hartman and D.J. Countess. Nistl’s individual statistics put him at the top of this list. He holds school’s records for career shutouts (41), victories (56) and single season GAA (.53 in both 1986 and 1989). Despite his outstanding individual efforts, Nistl did not win a championship even though his career was bracketed by title teams (UCLA won in 1985 and 1990). He was honored as a second team All American in 1989 as well as recognition as the ISAA Goalkeeper of the Year.


Nistl spent his off seasons at UCLA playing in the Western Soccer Alliance. In 1987, he joined the San Diego Nomads. He led the WSA that season with a .81 GAA as the Nomads took the WSA championship based on points. [ [ WSA 1987 Season] ] In 1988, he played for both the California Kickers and Nomads. [ [ WSA 1988 Season] ] That year, he was the Nomad’s goalkeeper in their semifinal loss to the San Jose Earthquakes. [ [ 1988 WSA Official Press Releases] ] He continued to play for the Nomads in 1989 as the team won the championship yet again. [ [ WSA 1989 Season] ] However, Jeff Duback was in goal for both the WSA championship win over the San Francisco Bay Blackhawks and the subsequent loss to the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in the “National” professional championship. [ [ More WSA Press Releases] ] He played his last season of outdoor professional soccer in 1990, again with the Nomads. [ [ WSL 1990 Season] ]
