World Cup 2022 – Watch out, the MLS is expected to be among the world’s best soccer leagues as it gears up for the next World Cup. The next World Cup will be played a decade from now (2022) in Qatar. Commissioner Don Garber said, the goal is to make the MLS one of the world’s best leagues and that’s a realistic goal.
“Unfortunately, they thought it would be better to have it in Qatar and play those games at 120 degrees in the middle of the summer,” Garber said Tuesday on a visit to Denver for an MLS board of governors meeting. “I’m not convinced that those games will end up being played in the summer, but at the end of the day, they made a decision that did not derail us from our goal. The plan is to still try to create a league that can compete with the other soccer leagues around the world in four or five different ways.”
Passionate soccer fans support and cheer on the MLS. The average attendance per game ranks seventh in the world, passing France and Holland. In fact, soccer is the second-most popular sport for age groups 12-24.
In cities such as, Seattle, Portland, Toronto, Salt Lake City and Kansas City, MLS is largely popular.
