        Are they still a Socialist team led by a Nazi owner, or did they force the as-shole to sell? That was always interesting.

          Just noticed Arsenal has Visit Rwanda as a sponsor. Kind of ironic with the Tories migrant deportation plan.

            The US Open Cup Round of 32 started last night. And for all the whining about MLS wanting to withdraw and ruining the tournament, attendance has been down across the board compared to league attendance for nearly every team and every game last night and tonight is only available via the US Soccer website. No TV, no streaming service (even though US Soccer has a TV deal with Turner).

            There’s been a common phrase used in online discussions regarding the tournament: People like the idea of the US Open Cup more than the US Open Cup.

              Real Madrid/Dortmund in the Champions League final. When they had the quarterfinal draw Dortmund was +2400 to win it all.
              A bad cause requires many words.

                $180 (fees included) for Supporters section tickets for Panama and Uruguay at Copa this Summer...

                      So Albany is getting an MLS Next franchise. I’ll ask the soccer experts on here: is this a good league to convert a casual fan like me? I coached the owner’s little brother in American football so I have a connection.

                        It really depends on if you're ok with playing against the reserve teams of MLS, basically kids and prospects, or not. It's like watching any other minor league sport, cheap, not exactly the most skillful, but you'll get an early glimpse of talent (especially since Albany will likely be playing NYCFC II, Red Bulls II, and Philly Union 2, three clubs that have notable history of youth prospects).

                        Though, at the end of the day, it's a local team to root for.

                          Is it correct that there are soccer academies that have franchises? That basically sounds like the Instructional Leagues.

                          It's necessary and perhaps even laudable, but I'm not going to root for Planet Fitness* if they compete in the Olympics.

                          * Though I would root for them over the US in the Summer Games.

                            What do you mean by soccer academies? Are you talking about organizations like Red Bull or City Football Group that own multiple teams in multiple countries? Or are you talking about youth team setups that nearly every professional club in the world has?

                                I saw a chart which included things like Ideasport Soccer Academy, Intercontinental FA New England, and Kalonji Soccer Academy, and was asking whether they are competing franchises. They may just be "participating organizations" the way say MLB supports the Cub Scouts.

                                On the surface, these seem to be private academies that aren't associated with a location. Like having the Red Army team in the Russian hockey league.
