The second edition of SuperLiga begins today with a 5 p.m. game on TeleFutura between CD Guadalajara and D.C. United.
The Houston Dynamo-Atlante game follows at 7 p.m. on the same channel.
The MLS Players Union is apparently not pleased with that alleged $1 million in SuperLiga prize money figure the league throws around.
Which might explain statements like this from New England’s Matt Reis: “We’re somewhat looking forward to the upcoming games.”
Still, Pachuca midfielder Gabriel Caballero (left) and Chivas USA midfielder Paulo Nagamura look pretty happy with the cash though.
Pachuca and Chivas USA – likely without goalkeeper Brad Guzan – play Sunday at Home Depot Center.
