MLS Teams Poised To Return To Arizona

New, 1 comment

As I reported (sorry, I guess that might sound a bit self-serving) earlier tonight, at least half a dozen Major League Soccer teams and likely more are firming up plans to return or come to the Valley for preseason training early next year.

This is good. With no high-level soccer in the state, getting MLS teams here for a couple of weeks only puts AZ on the American soccer map, even if this is, as one person put it, a “no-mans land” for soccer.

The weather is great, the space and fields are plentiful and the restaurants are everywhere. Why not come here? Baseball teams do. Helps our lagging economy, too.
