  1. i still can’t decide how i feel about la liga playing a regular season game in the usa every year. but since fifa president infantino doesn’t like it, i am more inclined to like it.

    • canada playing in mls has nothing to do with it. it’s a poor example. a better example is the nfl playing in london every year.

    • my current impression about it is it’s a little weird, and the season ticket holders in spain might be a little pissed off to lose a home game, but beyond those disincentives, i think la liga has the right to do it.

    • david beckham has declared miami to be an international city, open to the world, to everyone, no matter “where they came from or how they got there”. miami born business partner jorge mas will echo the welcome message, i think. it makes more sense just because beckham’s inter miami fc starts mls play in 2020 and la liga will come specifically to miami. any other City and it makes less sense to me.

    • Can’t stand the idea myself. Is it going to be Barca v Real Madrid? no.
      It will be one of those teams who would have played an away game in front of 15k
      now will tap the US money instead.
      just another example of exhibition games for US money.

  2. let us recall that colorado rapids mls owner sam kronke recently took control of arsenal in the epl. don’t know if gazidi’s departure to ac milan is related to that change of ownership or not.

    • when gazidi finds success in europe, is there any benefit to us here in the the usa/mls, i wonder? does anyone in mls/us soccer still keep contact with gazidi, i wonder?

    • Stan ( for Stanley) Kroenke and not Sam cheap two cents. Btw : did you own this place? because you’re ” talking ” too much lately.
