MLS Commissioner Don Garber Talks Business with Forbes

The Soccer Don sat down with Forbes reporter Fred Dreier yesterday for a chat about the state of the league as Year 17 lifts off.

They covered expansion, marketing, Beckham, and the recent deal with Providence Equity Partners, a private equity firm that acquired 25% of Soccer United Marketing, MLS’s marketing arm, for a reported $125 to $150 million.

Take a look:

At one point Garber alludes to the league, and the commissioner, after he has left the job. We don’t know who that commissioner will be, obviously, but, considering the enormous growth of MLS under Garber, whoever it is will have a tough act to follow.
