Seattle

Yesterday marked ten years to the day that MLS named Seattle as the newest expansion team. Ten years. Where did the time go?

The Sounders are still a week away from playing the first leg of the Western Conference Final. When they finally do make it to Houston to play the Dynamo, BBVA Compass Stadium will be filled to capacity.

If you follow Seattle Reign FC, you already know about Beverly Yanez on the pitch. Learn a little bit more about her and everything she has gone through in her career and life.

Seattle University and the University of Washington will meet in the first round of the 2017 NCAA Soccer Tournament. The winner will have to travel and take on Akron in the next round.

MLS

Brad Friedel is the newest head coach of the New England Revolution. He was selected from a list of about a dozen candidates that general manager Mike Burns compiled.

Take a look at the “Top 10” stories of the 2017 MLS season put together by MLSsoccer.com.

Columbus Crew SC are in the Eastern Conference Finals and hope to continue their run back to MLS Cup for the second time in three years. Scottish-born brewery, BrewDog, has interest in buying the team and unveiled a #SaveTheCrew beer.

On December 14, MLS will name two more expansion cities to join the league sometime in the near future. There are three that have the best shot at getting selected.

World

Italy will miss the World Cup for the first time since 1958 after their 0-0 draw against Sweden on Monday.

It also appears that legendary Italian goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon, has suited up for the last time for the Azzurri.
