However, soccer news recalls that the league has made great achievements since its inception in the year 1993. Its inaugural season began in 1995 and soccer news stirred around the new formation of teams, event location and new players. In the year 1996, the soccer news conveyed the League’s first spring training and first player. As the attendance continuous to raise, the ESPN television network started to televised soccer news and this is one of the reasons why its popularity ascended throughout the nation. During this year, more soccer news reports and members of the media began covering MLS events.
Supporters turned out in large fashion to catch a glimpse of their favorite players and teams. In the year 1998, MLS underwent its initial expansion season, which meant big changes for the League. With the addition of two teams, which brought the club count from its original 10 to the 12, soccer news introduced the newest League members as Miami and Chicago. Both teams proved powerful during their first year as they advanced to the playoffs. The following year, Columbus Crew Stadium officially opened as the first major league stadium in the United States of America that was constructed specifically for soccer.
Its presence paid off as thousands of fans packed the house to watch featured competitions. In the year 2002, MLS removed two of their 12 clubs from the roster and once again returned to 10 teams. Miami and Tampa Bay were no longer League teams, but were replaced in 2004 with other expansion teams. Club Deportivo Chivas USA and Real Salt Lake joined the League and brought the club number back up to its current 12 teams. The clubs of MLS consist of international and domestic competitors. With a varied roster, players are constantly being featured in soccer news magazines, soccer news televised interviews and programs. MLS continues to gain in popularity in the United States of America and around the world.
Major soccer news coverage, exciting competitions and cheering fans are among the many indications that MLS is here to stay. Soccer shows no signs of slowing down throughout the world. Its growth in terms of both recreational plays and professional teams promise to continue and prosper.  An estimated of 3 million fans watched the playoffs that year.
