I’ll have more in Tuesday’s column.
Season ticket holders will receive a hard copy of the 20-page magazine, but you can read it here for free.
Premier League matches on NBCSN have averaged 432,000 viewers — up 13% from the 381,000 average in the third quarter of last year, the network announced today.
That reportedly compares with the 150,000 NBCSN is getting this year for MLS games; ESPN is pulling in double that viewership for MLS games.

Former U.S. international Mia Hamm played soccer atop the 23-story hotel at LA Live as part of a Marriott promotion dubbed the “Search for the Ultimate Soccer Mom” won by Florida soccer mom Kathy Marler and her two daughters, 13-year-old Melissa Marler and 15-year-old Amma Iorio.

Heading to Tijuana to catch a #Xolos match tonight. Should be an adventure…

Getting back into the U.S. from Tijuana has always been way too much of a challenge, let alone an adventure, but it appears that perpetually undermanned border crossing may well be a thing of the past.
The 7:30 p.m. game is also live on ESPN Deportes.
Here’s the full statement from Don Garber:
“There is no doubt that Major League Soccer would not be what it is today without Landon Donovan.
“His decision to join MLS in 2001 was a statement to the entire soccer community, at the most crucial time in our history, that MLS could be a league of choice for the best American players. Landon is to MLS, what Michael Jordan was to the NBA, Wayne Gretzky was to the NHL and Tiger Woods was to the PGA Tour; a player who’s sporting accomplishments and popularity transformed their respective leagues and set a new standard for how the game would be played.
“While Landon is arguably the greatest player our country has ever produced, it is his character and his commitment to growing the game in the United States that truly makes him so special. We plan to celebrate his career during the second half of the MLS season, and we look forward to working alongside Landon as he continues to work in the sport he loves.”
