Washington, D.C. (March 29, 2011) - Former D.C. United stars Eddie Pope and Earnie Stewart were elected to the 2011 National Soccer Hall of Fame. Announced earlier today by U.S. Soccer, Pope earned a spot on 74 percent of the ballots and Stewart on 71 percent of the ballots.
Four MLS standouts and a pre-MLS World Cup hero were elected into the National Soccer Hall of Fame on Tuesday.
MLS originals Cobi Jones and Eddie Pope head the class.
Jones spent his entire 12-year MLS career with the LA Galaxy, helping his team win two MLS Cups, two Supporters' Shields, the 2000 CONCACAF Champions' Cup and two US Open Cups. The former midfielder is also the all-time leader in caps for the US national team and participated in three World Cups.
HARRISON, N.J. – MLS Commissioner Don Garber confirmed on Tuesday that the first-ever participation of MLS clubs in the World Football Challenge (WFC) this year will take the place of SuperLiga on the league’s summer calendar between July 14 and Aug. 6.
The primary reason for the shift from SuperLiga, a competition which pitted MLS clubs against their Mexican counterparts? The growth of the CONCACAF Champions League.
HARRISON, N.J. – Sir Alex Ferguson says he expects Manchester United to have their hands full when the club arrives in July to face the MLS All-Stars and three MLS clubs, more MLS action than the Red Devils have ever seen in previous US tours.
There's no doubt about who's ruling the rankings this week (Real Salt Lake and Colorado stay put atop the polls for another week), but look who's climbing. It's the unbeaten Philadelphia Union and Chicago Fire making some noise, while D.C. United and FC Dallas take a tumble. Got an issue? Vote for your own!
All match times for this week's games are ET.

GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala – After months of preparation, the United States U-20 national team arrives in Central America with a spot in the World Cup on the line.
The Americans need to advance from the three-team Group B, a relatively simple task on paper, and then win a quarterfinal match in which anything could happen in order to reach their eighth straight age group World Cup. Thomas Rongen's squad will be favored in every game except possibly the final but can't afford to lose concentration.
Thomas Rongen has enlisted plenty of talent for the CONCACAF U-20 Championship in Guatemala, but he needs a select few to excel if the favored Americans expect to advance to the World Cup. MLSsoccer.com takes a look at five players who will fill that role.
