Major League Soccer (MLS) is the top-flight professional soccer (football) league based in the United States and sanctioned by United States Soccer Federation (U.S. Soccer). The league comprises 15 teams, 14 in the U.S. and one in Canada. MLS represents the top tier of the American and Canadian soccer pyramids. MLS was founded in 1993 as part of the bid for the United States to host the 1994 FIFA World Cup. The first season took place in 1996 beginning with 10 teams. Seasons run from late March or early April to November, with teams playing 30 regular-season games each. Eight teams from the league compete in the post-season MLS Cup Playoffs, which culminate in MLS Cup.

Major League Soccer (MLS) Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 The football leagues in Europe are better than any other league in the world, not just MLS. The league's name refers to the fact that it's the top division in the country, not because it makes zillions of dollars and has steroided-up freaks. -- Submitted By: (RedPower) on September 11, 2011, 1:59 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 MLS is growing. Sure, it isn't at the European level yet and has a ways to go to get there, but they are getting some decent players joining the league and some cities are getting sizable followings such as L.A., Seattle, Portland, Vancouver and Toronto. At the pace it's going, in 10-15 years, it should be on the level of NHL, even potentially the NBA. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 30, 2011, 12:13 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I've really enjoyed watching MLS this season. Sure they are not as skilled as English Premier League but I like having the connection to my own country. Soccer is growing pretty well in the USA, especially on the west coast. To anyone who doesn't know, Soccer broadcasts are always uninterrupted. No commercial breaks during the game. This is true of the English Premier Leauge too. That's one of the best things about watching soccer. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on June 29, 2011, 10:00 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 To counter, some countries have a "Preimer League", yet if you are a soccer fan, you know THE Preimer League is in England. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on June 25, 2011, 9:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 What I don't get about Major League Soccer is it's name. It's not a major soccer league. From what I hear from die hard soccer fans 95 percent of the other leagues in Europe and 40 percent in South America have better players and play then the MLS. The MLS is a D level soccer league. D level is major league? -- Submitted By: (bjohn345) on June 25, 2011, 9:35 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Ties never bother me, though there should be incentives to try and avoid them as much as possible (see the NFL having sudden death overtime during the regular season back in the 70's. Ties have now become a once every few years type thing) -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 13, 2011, 6:21 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 A fair point, though it does suggest a pretty strong reason why soccer may never be more than marginally popular here in the USA: The difficulty in scoring. We Yanks like games in which we don't have to wait forever before points are scored. (Most baseball fans don't loving pitching duels, for example.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 13, 2011, 2:16 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Ending in ties/draws can be silly, but I will say that I'd prefer that over them to just keep going on until somebody scores (because, for some games, it could take hours). -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on May 12, 2011, 3:39 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Any sport in which a game can end in a tie is a sick joke. If the entire world outside the USA is happy with that arrangement, fine, but I don't get it. (Even the NHL came to its senses in that regard.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 12, 2011, 2:02 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 I will say, Soccer is gaining traction in this country, though if I am the head honchos in the MLS, or US Soccer in general, I take notes from the NBA, NHL, NASCAR, etc., all the sports that had a surge in popularity, just to start sagging, and not do what they did. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 20, 2010, 6:45 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Just too boring for Americans to ever embrace despite constant attempts to make us do so for the last 30 years. I played soccer for 5 years as a kid and I STILL can't stand watching it. All those players just running up and down the field, up and down, up and down...and then there's just one score the whole game 95% of the time! If every football game ended with a 3-0 score I'd get bored with that too! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on August 17, 2009, 2:18 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 "Boring!" "Come on, you schnorers, do something!" Halfback passes to the center. Back to the wing. Back to the center. Center holds it...Holds it...Holds it... -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on July 29, 2009, 8:20 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
