The New Year is upon us and 2012 is shaping up to be another exciting and eventful year in the American soccer scene, but before we dive into a full schedule of big events, it is time to think about the year we just completed.
What will you remember about 2011? It surely varies from fan to fan, region to region, but there was plenty for fans from every corner of the United States to remember. From the arrival of Portland and departure of Kasey Keller in the Pacific Northwest, to fans in Nashville and Miami getting the chance to see the U.S. national team play live. North Carolina won a national championship, while Sporting Kansas City opened their beautiful new Livestrong Sporting Park. The U.S. Women's World Cup team stole the show in the summer with their run to the final, while the LA Galaxy dominated MLS on their way to an MLS Cup title.
