American Soccer Happenings

With the break in the postseason and several MLS players on international duty, news around the league is scant. Still, with Tata Martino officially out, there are still moves being made. Oscar Pareja of FC Dallas is reportedly leaving MLS to take over Club Tijuana.

Madison Wisconsin, rumored to be a possible location of Minnesota United FC’s USL affiliate, officially has a USL team. Nothing official (or unofficial) has been released about MNUFC’s eventual affiliate, but the MLS side continues to struggle to develop younger players due to a lack of an affiliate and a refusal to play younger players in MLS matches.

Humboldt won its first Adaptive Soccer State Championship since 2002 in the PI division. St. Cloud Area won in CI division, with both championship games being played on Saturday.

European Soccer

While European countries compete in the recently-created UEFA Nations League, news continues to swirl about a possible new super league for the biggest clubs. Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus are just three of the clubs involved in the possible creation of a “super league”.

Jon Marthaler at the Star Tribune is no fan of the idea, as he wrote on Saturday.
