About
A comprehensive in-depth account of the first 20 years of MLS, capturing the story of the visionaries who believed Americans would finally embrace the sport of soccer and the loyal fans who fulfilled that vision. Veteran soccer journalist Phil West follows all the rocky ups and downs of MLS's history, tracking its bootstrap origins prior to its 19969 launch, its near-demise in the early 2000s, its surprising resilience and growth in the following years, and its formidable rise in respectability and recognition from soccer fans around the world.

West expertly merges the voices of former players and coaches, fans, league officials, journalists, and newspaper accounts to detail MLS's remarkable journey, perfect for those new to the United States' top-tier league as well as for those who thought they knew the full story.
