View Full Version : Northwest trio sparks MLS revival

Three years ago, the Pacific Northwest didn’t have a single Major League Soccer team. Now it has three within 300 miles of each other, which led MLS commissioner Don Garber to claim: “This is the most anticipated season in our history,” from his office 3000 miles away in New York City. The beautiful, rain-swept region that straddles the north-western corner of the United States and a south-western chunk of British Columbia, Canada, has breathed new life into the league, becoming – according to some – the epicentre of the North American soccer scene.

I really believe those three teams in close proximity to each other are going to bring it.

It's great for the league to have such strong markets out west creating a great rivalry amongst each other.

I really think the Toronto-Montreal rivalry will be epic as well.

Can't wait for the Toronto-Montreal rivalry to ramp up even more.

Yes, to the Toronto-Montreal rivalry!
