NEW YORK – Three lucky MLS clubs will land highly rated
prospects just in time for preseason as three separate weighted player lotteries
determine the fate of Cody Arnoux (pictured above), Chris Agorsor and Korey Veeder.
The league uses the lottery mechanism for: 1) players who
have completed their college eligibility and sign after the SuperDraft; 2) underclassmen
who sign Generation adidas contracts after the SuperDraft; and 3) players
who were previously offered MLS contracts and did not sign.
WASHINGTON, DC— D.C.
United continúa con su preparación de pretemporada en Fort Lauderdale, FL, con
un plantel cargado de optimismo por la llegada de nuevas figuras y la gran
expectativa de enfrentar la campaña de 2011 con nuevos bríos. La meta es
empezar a acumular desde temprano los puntos que eventualmente lo podrían
llevar a la Liguilla por primera vez en tres años.
Earlier this week the Elite Clubs National League released their list of the 14 new girls clubs that have been invited to join the fast-growing league. Assuming all 14 accept, the total count of clubs would presumably settle at 66 the foreseeable future. Over ninety clubs applied for entry this year, but the list was whittled down by executive committee, then voted on in the league's "one club, one vote" format.
With the announcement of the 2011 MLS Schedule on Thursday, D.C. United continue to look forward to a new chance to set things straight.

NEW YORK – Major League Soccer fans, put in your vacation time now.
The league released its official schedule for the 2011 regular season on Thursday, including all the details for national broadcasts on the ESPN family of networks and Spanish-language broadcasts on Galavisión and TeleFutura.
From coast to coast and deep into the Rocky Mountains, MLS rivalries are always at the center of fervor and fury when MLS fans start marking their calendars.
The 2011 season is no different, as the Cascadia Cup rivlary takes it place among the other biggest fueds in the league, including the Rocky Mountain Cup, the SuperClásico and the I-95 rivalries that stretch from New England all the way to the nation's capital.
Here's a look at of the matches that will make up some of the biggest rivalries in MLS this season. All times are Eastern.
It was an unusual offseason in MLS. Not just because the league added two expansion teams and held five different drafts, but because that led to a reshuffling of rosters that could prove dizzying to the fans.
Stalwarts from seemingly every corner of the league changed addresses. From Juan Pablo Angel to Jimmy Conrad, many of the best and best-loved players in MLS will be plying their trades in a new home.
Here are the regular-season matches to circle on your MLS calendar, according to the editorial staff of MLSsoccer.com:
