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.
