  • I have been enjoying these features about Alejandro Bedoya's return to MLS:

  • Wow: "Banc of California, whose 41-year-old leader has almost doubled its stock price and assets since the start of 2015, agreed to pay $100 million over 15 years to slap its name on Los Angeles’s new soccer stadium, according to a person with knowledge of the agreement. At $6.7 million per year, the sponsorship is one of Major League Soccer’s biggest naming-rights deals, topping some similar arrangements in much bigger leagues as well. Technology company Avaya recently agreed to pay $2 million per year in a 10-year deal with MLS’s San Jose Earthquakes, according the San Jose Mercury News. M&T Bank recently extended its deal with the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens for $6 million a year."

  • "ESPN FC spoke with seven American soccer experts from a variety of backgrounds about where the league needs to improve and how it can do so. A couple of themes repeated themselves. Most panelists agree that MLS has made massive strides since it launched 20 years ago and, at least in some areas, can already claim to be one of the top leagues in the world. But the level of play needs to improve and the revenue needs to grow. How that happens, however, is clearly up for debate."
