#CelebrateFreedom this week with @MLS


This week marks Canada Day (July 1) and American Independence Day (July 4), and you know what that means: barbeques, tailgates, parades, friends and family. It's also an opportunity to thank the men and women in the armed forces who work to maintain our many freedoms every day.  

Are you, or is someone you know, in the military?

If so, from 10:30 am - 11:59 pm ET on Tuesday, July 3, tweet us a photo @MLS wearing your favorite Major League Soccer team gear with a description of your role in the U.S. or Canadian armed forces. Be sure to include the hashtag #CelebrateFreedom. One random person will be selected from the first 10 eligible photos received to win an AT&T MLS All-Star jersey.  

(UPDATE: Congrats to Philadelphia Union supporter @dixonij on being selected as the winner.) Check out the Facebook Album to see the photo submissions. 

On the Fourth of July, we’ll feature our favorite photo submissions in a gallery on the MLS Facebook page.  Please read our Official Social Media Giveaway rules to make sure you're eligible.

Remember, while you’re celebrating with your friends and family, be sure to tune into the MLS games this week, and tune-in to the AT&T MLS All-Star pre-game show on MLSsoccer.com, presented by U.S. Army, on July 25.
