Major League Soccer 2019 Everything You Need to Know About the Teams

Details

Major League Soccer (MLS) is on the fast track to becoming the world’s next super league. Major League Soccer 2019: Everything You Need to Know About the Teams gives in-depth information on this amazing league, including the players, coaches, each team’s style of play, and even background on each MLS city. As American soccer continues to explode in popularity, it’s only a matter of time before the United States takes over the world’s most popular sport. Compared with the soccer-playing world, MLS had a late start, playing its first games in 1996, yet its goal is to surpass the EPL, Serie A, La Liga, and Bundesliga. This book explains the current focus of the MLS and its plans for the future. MLS is a league that has attracted the world’s best, such as David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, Zlatan Ibrahimović, World Cup champions Thierry Henry and Kaka, along with a host of talent from the United States men’s national soccer team, including Landon Donovan and Clint Dempsey. All the players and current team rosters are discussed in this book. While players come and go, the fans are beginning to establish an unbreakable, lifelong bond with their teams—the Portland Timbers, Atlanta United, D.C. United, Columbus Crew, Sporting Kansas City, LA Galaxy, Seattle Sounders, and every other MLS city in-between, along with expansion teams, such as Cincinnati and Miami—and this book will spur their enthusiasm. Major League Soccer 2019 takes the fan through every aspect of this exciting—and fastest growing—league.
