An introduction to Major League Soccer
For over 200 years, soccer, or football if you so prefer, has had its place in North America. Although many changes have occurred over the past two centuries, one thing that hasn’t changed is the love for the sport in America.
I cover the beautiful game because I love it. It’s as simple as that.
There are many untold stories surrounding the sport in the West, and I hope to tell as many of them as I can. From the various supporters’ groups, to the coaches, to the players, I aim to cover the league from as many angles as I am able to.
There is nothing I would love to see more than for soccer to become the largest, most popular sport in North America.
In time, it will get there. For now, I’ll be doing my part.
In 1996, MLS was launched as a league and has since grown to become one of the most attended professional sports leagues in North America. The Supporters’ culture is alive and well, big name players are joining the league at an increasing rate, and year by year the league is moving closer to accomplishing it’s goal as one of the world’s top soccer leagues.
The league has overcome several challenges, and will likely face many more, but MLS Commissioner Don Garber’s strategy is working.
It’s just a matter of time before MLS joins its older, European relatives. Under the so-far successful leadership of Garber, it could very well be sooner rather than later.
