The news about Chivas USA’s big sale has been slowly coming out — but a big piece is now being reported. The group of investors who are reportedly buying the beleaguered franchise has been named, and it includes investors who own a number of sports teams, such as the L.A. Dodgers and Golden State Warriors.

Meanwhile, a new financial audit from U.S. Soccer divulged a bevy of information about the federation. For the first time, new USWNT coach Jill Ellis’ salary was disclosed while Jurgen Klinsmann’s salary was unchanged from last year. Records also show spending and revenues for each national team, television/sponsorship deals, hosting the U.S. Open Cup, operating the National Women’s Soccer League, bidding on the World Cup, and more.

And it’s always a good time for roster predictions. For the U.S. Men’s National Team, the CONCACAF Gold Cup is still nine months away, but the SBI staff took a look at how that roster is shaping up. On the women’s side, CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers are two weeks away and SBI’s Caitlin Murray took a crack at predicting the roster for the U.S. Women’s National Team.
