MLS Regular Season
WATCH: New York City FC's Mix Diskerud strikes from distance in expansion club's final preseason game
New York City FC (and USMNT) fans got a taste of Mix Diskerud’s world-class skill on Saturday night, when the US national team midfielder banged one home from distance in the Carolina Challenge Cup finale against the Charleston Battery.
As part of MLSsoccer.com's comprehensive guide to of the 2015 season, we asked fans to rank the top rivalries in MLS last week.
So far the voting has gone pretty much the way you'd expect. The current top five are listed below:
2. LA Galaxy-Seattle
3. Red Bulls-D.C. United
4. Colorado-Real Salt Lake
ORLANDO – Orlando City have officially filled the bowl.
The club announced on Monday that their MLS debut on Sunday against fellow expansion side New York City FC (5pm ET, ESPN2, ESPN Deportes, WatchESPN) at the 60,000-seat Citrus Bowl has sold out, with only a few hundred season tickets being held back for special sale this week.
The club have halted additional sales to Sunday’s game tied to Kickoff Week special events, and the club’s second home game – against Vancouver on March 21 – is already almost a lower-bowl sellout.
Sporting Kansas City continued their offseason makeover on Monday by announcing that they have signed Canadian international left back Marcel de Jong.
De Jong is the 13th player added by Kansas City ahead of their return to the Western Conference. Sporting are scheduled to kick off the 2015 season against the team that knocked them out of last year's playoffs, the New York Red Bulls on Sunday at Sporting Park (7pm ET, FOX Sports 1, FOX Deportes).
The 2015 MLS season – the 20th in the league's history – is nearly upon us. And MLSsoccer.com has you covered with everything you need to know heading into the next campaign.
VANCOUVER, B.C. - When you come to Major League Soccer as a Designated Player, the pressure is on to perform from Day 1.
If those early games prove to be a struggle, the questions come in quickly: Does the signing just need more time to settle into his new surroundings? Is the player going to prove to be an expensive bust? We've all seen both scenarios play out, with the analysis sometimes unforgiving.
CARSON, Calif. – Juninho's childhood dream slipped away from him just like that.
Twice São Paulo FC – the club he'd supported all his life, the club that had discovered him at 15 manning the midfield for a provincial foe – called in his loan from the LA Galaxy and told him they wanted him for their first team.

Want to hear from some of the notable names around the league? MLSsoccer.com contributing editor Alicia Rodriguez spends 10 minutes talking to some of the big names in North American soccer.
This is the 14th in a series of 20 short columns focused on the things I'm thinking about as we approach the 20th season of Major League Soccer. I'm going to dig into mostly non-obvious questions here – the tertiary stuff that can become bigger over time – rather than the giant storylines (e.g., How do the Red Bulls replace Henry?
