MLS WORKS Weekly Club Highlights

Following a poor showing in the CONCACAF Champions League earlier this week, our clubs return to MLS action this weekend.  As players continue the early-season process of learning different systems, meshing with new teammates and indoctrinating rookies, MLS fans and supporters are starting to learn what this season might have in store for the club they follow.   Coaches must tinker with lineups and club staff members are busy planning for the season.  Although there is a back to business mentality in 19 cities across the U.S. and Canada which focuses mainly on the pitch, all of our clubs have begun to re-engage with the communities in which they compete.  Take a moment to learn about some of the philanthropic work our clubs have already done this year.
