MLS have finally officially announced their return to Fox Soccer Channel. The first game was last Saturday night in KC v New England. They actually had announcers Sean Wheelock and Christopher Sullivan on site as opposed to their usual broadcasting technique of calling the game off a studio monitor (which is always a total joke). Good job FSC. Keep it up.

MLS have also become an official sponsor of the Big Soccer message boards. Cool idea. And way overdue.

You are probably right, but no need to rub it in.
