There is hope for America

Well, at least American soccer, anyway.

Adidas Deal With MLS Contains Plans for Development League (

This is great news for Major League Soccer. Getting the 10-year/$150 million uniform deal with adidas was great for the league's finances and stability, but a reserve league will do wonders for the quality of play.

Right now, with limited roster sizes, young players have to develop in college or go to Europe. With a reserve league, teams can keep players under their wings without sacrificing their competitive edge. This is fantastic news.
