Per an ESPN study, pro-soccer is now the 2nd most popular sport in America for 12-24 year-olds! This is great news for the MLS. Baseball is currently the second most popular sport among all Americans, but most baseball fans are older while Major League Soccer is a young person’s game. This means that as generations of baseball fans die off, they will be replaced with generations of soccer fans, and the MLS will welcome them with open arms. Great news soccer fans!

Have a great weekend!
