Major League Soccer

Institutional Partner

Major League Soccer is the top-flight professional soccer league in the United States and Canada and began play in 1996, shortly after the U.S. hosted the 1994 FIFA World Cup.  Now in its 23rd season in 2018, MLS continues to grow at an explosive rate, as the league features record-breaking attendance and consumption, an influx of dynamic players, and 20 soccer stadiums.  MLS has doubled in size during the past decade and now has 26 clubs throughout the United States and Canada, including future expansion teams in Miami, Nashville and Cincinnati that will begin play in the next few years. Two more expansion teams will be added in the coming years, elevating MLS to 28 clubs.
