A kids team from Tacoma is trying to raise money for a tournament that they qualified for after only a year.

San Diego's MLS hopes may have died this weekend as San Diego State University decided to end talks with an ownership group with the goal of building a multi-sport facility in Southern California. The move likely narrows the field of competitors for the last few MLS expansion slots.

For all of the problems Qatar has encountered in its preparation for the World Cup, at least it can say that they have succeeded in putting together their heavily advertised "cool stadium" technology.

The Richmond Kickers became the first major upset victims of the 2017 US Open Cup after falling to Christos FC.

The NWSL probably wishes that their US Nationals were the ones rewriting the record books, but performances like Nahomi Kawasumi's over the weekend are the kind of greatness that deserves to be admired.

Quebec residents will be disappointed to hear that Darlington Nagbe is expected to rejoin the Portland Timbers in time for their Saturday match with the Montreal Impact.

Toronto FC is looking far scarier than even the team that paraded to MLS Cup in 2016, even when key pieces have had to miss plenty of time in the last two months.

Ten years ago, the massive nerd in me would have been horrified to hear that a bipedal robot named Rex would be allowed to walk the sidelines of a soccer match, or even be allowed to exist in a post-Metal Gear universe.

The NASL is picking up a new So-Cal franchise in the near future, and Angels on Parade may have an idea of what that team will be called. has a scouting report on five local (for them) prospects who may be ready to jump to bigger, better leagues.

Chonburi FC lost 3-0 yesterday... Even an ocean away, I can't get away from a three goal deficit...

A training player on the outside of a recent Sporting Portugal B team game cost his team a penalty after reaching into the field of play and touching a live ball.
