MLS: The Ugly Duckling Of Football

If you mention the teams Chicago Fire or Colorado Rapids most people in europe would think you're talking about an American Football team or even a basketball team.

For years now the MLS (Major League Soccer) has lived in the shadow of other american football teams such as American Football, Baseball and Ice hockey etc but soccer player in the MLS are soon hoping that will change after MLS teams have helped to make their league more atrractive by bringing over big names in the past years. Such as David Beckham, Theirry Henry, Juan Pablo Angel and Rafael Marquez.

In my opinion the MLS is way underrated, a lot of people would just dismiss it being any good just because they call it soccer. The average attendance of an american soccer game it around 17500 with nearly all the stadiums over 15000 in capacity.

The most well known team in the MLS would probaly be LA Galaxy because that David Beckham moved there. If you ever sit down switch on the computer but have nothing to look up the go on www.mlsnet.com look up the news and watch some match highlights.

You may find yourself thinking the MLS has quite a lot to offer like I did, otherr programs I recommend are goal of the week and save of the week.
