NEW YORK – Major League Soccer and FOX Soccer announced on Friday that they have extended the network’s national broadcast rights agreement for one year.
The premier soccer-only channel in North America will broadcast up to 31 regular-season games, plus three exclusive MLS Cup Playoff matches including a Conference Final – all in high definition.

WASHINGTON — With mounting injury concerns in goal, D.C. United announced Thursday night that assistant coach Pat Onstad is coming out of retirement and returning to play for the club.
“Pat is our best option in goal right now for the situation we’re in,” head coach Ben Olsen told DCUnited.com. “Pat is an extremely experienced player that can bring stability to our back line – we are very lucky to have him.”
D.C. United central defender Dejan Jakovic is finally with the rest of his teammates out in California after spending much of February up in the air.
On Feb. 6, Jakovic started and played 90 minutes for the Canadian national team in a 1-0 friendly loss against Greece in Europe. It was a tight window and required crossing the Atlantic in a short time period.
Despite the distance he had to cover, the overall experience was positive.
With the regular season just under a month away, rookies across MLS are getting adjusted to the rigors of their first preseason as professionals.
NEW YORK – Voting for the 2011 class of the National Soccer
Hall of Fame has kicked off and there is a strong chance it could wind up being
an all-MLS class based on the names that are up for election in three different
categories: Player, Veteran and Builder.
El asistente técnico
de D.C. United Pat Onstad ha realizado un sorpresivo movimiento del banquillo
al campo de juego.
La lesión del
portero de DC Steve Cronin junto con la recuperación del portero Bill Hamid ha
forzado al experimentado guardameta a regresar a una posición entre los tres
palos. A pesar de tener disponibles al portero Chase Harrison y al jugador de
primer año Joe Willis, quienes se han venido desarrollando bien en el
campamento del equipo, el club consideró que es muy importante tener en la
escuadra a un jugador de alta experiencia.
