I’m really excited about seeing large crowds gathered across the country for the USMNT games. Makes me really think that soccer can really make the impact that I would like it to. I’m really glad that I’m seeing big crowds locally in advance of 2017. Even some friends who have never cared about soccer are seeing the appeal. That is only a good thing.
Now that it is over, it’s destined to return to fourth or fifth-tier status for most. There is no denying how MLS has grown though. A condition of hosting the 94 World Cup, the league went through a period of shakiness but now looks solid. Finally we get our own team in three years and the local support looks promising. Can’t wait to sit in the new stadium on opening day in the supporters section and it be absolutely crazy.
