Following a debut season in 2013 that took fans and viewers deep inside numerous untold tales of MLS players, coaches and history, NBCSN's MLS Insider has been nominated for a 2014 Emmy Award in the category of Outstanding Sports Documentary Series.

"We're thrilled that the stars and the stories from MLS have received this recognition from our industry peers," said Howard Handler, MLS Chief Marketing Officer, of the honor. "We're also incredibly grateful for the creative vision of Jonathan Hock and everyone at Hock Films. As we march to Brazil, Season II will continue to deliver rich storytelling to our fans. Stay tuned!"

Directed by Jonathan Hock, an eight-time Emmy winner and current overseer of ESPN's upcoming Inside: US Soccer's March to Brazil series, MLS Insider debuted in June 2013 and ran 16 episodes in its first season.

The documentary series recently returned for its second season, via KICKTV and MLSsoccer.com, as it will continue to do each week throughout the 2014 season.
